15 Minute One Skillet Sausage Stir Fry


If you have followed me for very long, I am sure you are aware by now, that this is Sausage Stir fry is one of my go-to meals during the week. I would say I probably eat it 4 times a week. It is so easy, quick and super cheap to make.

Sausage Stir Fry with Chili Lime Sauce

Although the stir fry is amazing by itself, I always pair it with my Chili Lime Sauce that truly takes it to a different level. My sauces really are a game changer. They bring life to boring meals and add a ton of additional flavor.

In addition, I always top this stir fry with a fried egg. My husband absolutely adores when I put a runny egg over it. The yolk mixed with the sausage, veggies and sauce is truly magical. The best part about this recipe, is you can eat it for any meal during the day. It’s perfect for breakfast or even a quick week night dinner.

Most importantly, take this recipe and tailor it to meet your needs. If you are not a fan of the mushrooms or Brussels sprouts, then switch out for other veggies of your choice. We will switch this recipe up by subbing a bag frozen pepper and onions in place of the Brussels sprouts and mushrooms.

Can you freeze this Sausage Stir Fry?

Yes! I love making a few batches and portioning them out for lunches throughout the month. Just make sure to freeze in a freezer proof container and remove the sauce. I will make a fresh batch of sauce and store in the fridge for up to 1 week. I would not recommend freezing the sauce with the stir fry. Pack that separate in a small Weck Jar and add to the sausage stir fry before or after re- heating.

What other sauces could you use for this recipe?

I have a ton of other sauce recipes that would go great with this stir fry. My personal favorite is my Mac’s Awesome Sauce that will completely change your life. It is great on veggies, eggs, proteins and stir fry recipes. In addition, I love my Buffalo Dill, Fiesta Cilantro and Avocado Ranch. All of these sauces would be a great addition if you aren’t a fan of the Chili Lime or if you just want to change it up every now and then!

  • I love how simple and delicious this recipe is! Thank you for providing such great content for us!

    • So happy you love this. I am a quick meal type of gal 🙂

  • We love a Sunday breakfast in our home! Sunday is the only day we have together where no one is working. It’s so easy to reach for carbs and end up with a breakfast “hangover.” Sluggish for the whole day and unmotivated from too much dairy and too many carbs! I made this dish this weekend for us and added a small side of diced potatoes for my husband! We were both very happy satisfied and made it through the day without a nap!

  • Really enjoyed this recipe!! Came together pretty quick and easy and I loved the chili lime sauce!!

    • Thanks Courtney. Finding sauces that taste so good and are healthy certainly can take a bland meal and set it off to have a completely different ending. Keeping fresh sauces in my frig is a must for my hubby and girls.

  • I have made a lot of Ashley’s recipes and we have loved them all. I’m so sad I didn’t make this sooner. We had it last night for supper and everyone loved it. It came together so quick and was so delicious. We will definitely be eating this on repeat! Cannot recommend enough!

  • I’ve tried a lot of recipes that were suggested as meal prep and the second time eating wasn’t nearly as good as the first, but this recipe did not disappoint!! It’s a great reset meal when you want something clean and healthy. It definitely makes extra for leftovers. The chili lime sauce really made this dish great!
