    While we love adding sausage and peppers, feel free to get creative and any whatever veggies and leftover meat you have on hand. Onions, ham and potatoes is another great combo that my boys love.

    • Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees and spray a muffin tin with cooking spray; set aside.
    • Cook the Little Potato Company’s Microwave Ready Creamer potatoes according to package instructions. Be sure to peel back the cover and remove the seasoning pack. 
    • While potatoes are cooking, heat a medium skillet over medium-high heat and spray with cooking spray. Sauté Italian sausage for 5-7 minutes, using a wooden spoon to break up into bite-sized pieces. Add the diced bell peppers and sauté additional 2-3 minutes; set aside.
