Sausage and Potatoes with Sour Cream Sauce | Good Cheap Eats

Our month in France was pretty fabulous. I finally finished posting the story of our European vacation, and I’m dying to go back. We had some great adventures as a family — and ate some fabulous meals.

Since we had access to a kitchen for almost all our time in France, I got to go shopping frequently in french grocery stores and figure out how to make food I knew my kids would eat. While they did expand their horizons, there were requests for burritos and burgers from time to time.

One of the items most frequently in my grocery basket were chipolatas. Similar to an Italian sausage in flavor yet the shape of breakfast links, we enjoyed these sausages often in Collioure and in Paris, usually with boiled potatoes and a salad.

When we had lunch with the Benoits, Jen prepared a beautiful feast for us with grilled chicken, sausage, and potatoes. She added this delicious sauce on the side. I’ve been quizzing her from afar so that I could add it to my own repertoire.

Jen makes it with fromage blanc, something similar to our sour cream.

This supper is super simple, but so delicious! It comes together quickly in less than 30 minutes. If you can find new potatoes, use those so you don’t have to peel them. Mine have been growing eyes faster than I can use them, so I’ve been peeling.

Keep an eye open for sausages on sale and stock the freezer when you find a good price.

    Such a simple yet filling meal. We have taken to eating turkey sausage and there is such a variety including one called Sweet Italian sausage which tastes really good. I’m going shopping in the next day or two and I’m going to pick up some sausage; I already have a lot of potatoes in the fridge and I’m going to make this.

    Also, I wanted to tell you that your post the other day about fajitas inspired me so I made them and they were a huge hit. I don’t cook too much Mexican food but I went all out and made a “fajita bar” with bowls and platters all over the table with all of the fixings. I also made a fiesta black bean salad. I always make bean salad out of white cannellini beans or red kidney beans so this was something different. I never had black beans before but they were just as good as the others. I mixed them with corn, chopped green bell pepper, chopped grape tomatoes, chopped red onion, salt, pepper, oil and vinegar. The whole dinner was a success and I’m glad I tried something new. So thanks for the inspiration! 🙂

    Actually, I was thinking it would make a great cookbook title “Practical Family Food That No One Objects To” 🙂
