Potatoes & Sweet Potatoes Pan Fried

Spring and summer may have been late in coming this year but that means good news for farm goers this fall. Berries are still plentiful, apples are in good supply and the new potatoes are scrumptious!

I think what I love most about potatoes is their versatility. They are great in salads, as a side dish and there are so many delicious and diverse ways to prepare them. Combining them with sweet potatoes is now one of my favorite!

Potatoes Provide Important Nutrients!

  • No fat, sodium or cholesterol.
  • Nearly half your daily value of vitamin C.
  • More potassium than a banana.
  • A good source of vitamin B6.

This easy dish comes together in just 30 minutes and is great for breakfast, lunch, dinner or a snack. The addition of chipotle offers a mild but earthy taste that it is a perfect complement to the potatoes.

Pan-Fried Sausage & Apples

It’s the healthy comfort food season and what better way to enjoy than this Pan-Fried Sausage & Apples dish. There are so many delicious elements to this recipe – garlic, onions, mushrooms, red peppers, spinach and sage create a medley of memorable flavors!

The farm has so many different varieties of apples to choose from – Sunrise, Gala, Honey Crisp, Mackintosh and Zestar! I’m all about creating your own flavors so feel free to pick your favorite apple for this dish but I used Sunrise – one of my favorite!

Sweet and savory is always popular and the addition of pan-fried sage takes this dish over the top. When cooked this way, sage leaves lose their pungent, harsh taste entirely and become subtle instead of overpowering.

We all know about the main benefits of apples but did you also know that they:

  • Improve neurological health
  • Prevent dementia
  • Lower levels of bad cholesterol
  • Reduce risk of diabetes
