Roasted Potatoes with Sausage

A meaty variation on a family favorite!

6-7 medium potatoes
1 medium onion
4-6 large cloves garlic or 1 T granulated garlic
a double handful of ground sausage
1 T chili powder
1 t cumin
1/2 t turmeric
2 generous pinches kosher salt
fresh ground black pepper
crushed red pizza pepper (optional)
3 T olive oil

Preheat oven to 450F. Dice the potatoes and onion to 1/2 inch; crush and mince the garlic; crumble the sausage. Combine in a cast-iron skillet. Add salt, pepper, chili powder, cumin, turmeric, and pizza pepper. Drizzle on the olive oil and mix by hand until everything is well-coated.

Bake 30 minutes, turn well with a nonstick spatula and bake another 30 minutes.

Serve with brown gravy if desired.

I added some leftover rice to the leftover salad and it made a very nice, mild counterpoint to the spicy potatoes.
