Smoked Sausage, Tomatoes and Okra Skillet - TSLC

This Smoked Sausage, Tomatoes and Okra is a great recipe to use up fresh garden vegetables but could be made with frozen and canned vegetables, too.  This recipe makes a quick, easy meal served over rice. My family loves the fresh vegetables in this dish.

1 (14 ounce) package smoked sausage, sliced in rounds

2 tablespoons bacon drippings or cooking oil

1 cup chopped green onion

1 chopped green pepper

3 cups peeled and chopped fresh tomatoes 0r 1 (14 ounce can diced tomatoes)

2 cups chopped fresh okra (could use frozen)

1 cup fresh or frozen corn (could use canned)

1 teaspoon salt

2 teaspoons brown sugar

1/2 teaspoon paprika

1 teaspoon minced garlic

1/2 teaspoon Cajun seasoning, Optional

few drops hot sauce



Brown sausage, green onion and green pepper in bacon drippings.  Add all the remaining ingredients and simmer covered 15-20 minutes until okra is tender.  Serve over rice.  Makes 6 to 8 servings.  Enjoy!

Note:  You could add some fresh zucchini to this recipe, too. Just chop up a cup of zucchini and add when adding the vegetables.

      Wonderful! Thank you so much for letting me know. I’m so glad you enjoyed this recipe. Have a wonderful week Laura!

  2. Do you think some greens; kale, collards, or chard, would work well in this dish? I tried it with squash a few weeks ago and want to make it again, but I’m in need of some greens!

  3. You had me at smoked sausage, tomatoes an okra but the other ingredients just makes it sound even more delicious

    Made this last night – one of the tastiest dishes I’ve tried in a long time! Made it with sausage I had on hand and canned okra and tomatoes (I know fresh would have been better), but I used what I had, and it still turned out great. Thanks for the recipe!

  5. I made this recipe today for dinner,,, it went over great…. so easy, so tasty,,,, would make this again. Thanks
