Smothered potatoes are a staple of Southern cooking. Smothering is a Cajun and Creole cooking technique which is essentially the process of cooking food in its own juices while covered. In this dish, sausage is cooked with potatoes allowing the juices to steam and cook the potatoes resulting in a savory combination. Smothered potatoes is a versatile dish able to accompany main dishes while still supplying enough flavor to stand on its own as a meal.
The Best Stop has put its own spin on smothered potatoes with the addition of its Best Stop Pepper Jack Smoked Pork Sausage. The smokiness of the pork combined with the spicy creaminess of the pepper jack cheese brings this classic to an all-new level. In addition to cranking up the flavor, this recipe is also a huge time-saver! The traditional version takes hours on the stove with many risks of burning if not stirred constantly, but this recipe can be done as quickly as a batch of rice with little to no effort!
