Yummy comfort food, that the whole family will enjoy. Good in any weather :)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Put a large skillet on the stove on Med High. Put oil in the pan and add the chopped onions and garlic. Peel and cube the potatoes. The smaller the cube the less cooking time. Add salt and pepper to season accordingly to your taste. Turn the potatoes every few minutes till they are browned on all sides. Slice the smoked sausage (I use the skinless with cheese inside) and add to the pan. Cover then stir every few minutes. We like the meat really browned so I turn up the heat to high till the sausage slices are the right color.
  2. Serve with a salad and some sweet tea, and you have the perfect midweek meal.

This was made on 6/25/09 for mine and SO's dinner.Since the was just the two of us,the recipe was reduced down to serve two.I used three medium sized potatoes and about 7 ounces of beef smoked sausage. And the onion was cut back to 1/3 cup, and I forgot the garlic ( next time I'll remember it ) This was a very good "comfort food " recipe. Thanks for posting and, "Keep Smiling :) "

Mixed-up recipe; ingredients are OK but you should cook the potatoes first (take longer than onions), before the onions and garlic. Doesn't specify if the garlic should be minced or whole. Doesn't specify if the sausage is precooked or raw (think Johnsonville). If raw, you should boil the sausage for 10 minutes before slicing/frying. Turning up the burner to high after browning the potatoes and cooking the onions and garlic will burn them all. The sausage should be cooked separately!

Edible, but nothing special. Made the recipe as written and it was very bland, even with a bunch of salt and pepper.
