    Alyss05's Note:

    I jokingly call this my Breakfast for People Who Are Worried About their Saturated Fat Intake. There is more and more evidence that saturated fats are an important and healthy part of a balanced diet. Your brain, hormones and the cell membranes in every part of your body are made out of them. Buy some good sausage, some good cheese and make this as a treat for yourself. They don't say someone is "fat and happy" for no reason :)

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      In a 10 inch cast iron skillet crumble and brown the breakfast sausage over medium heat. The crumbles should be about marble sized and cooked through. Remove the sausage from the pan and drain on paper towels. Reserve for later and try not to eat it all.
    2. 2
      If you must, pour off or blot a little of the sausage grease out of the pan, but really you don't have to. Add the cubed potatoes to the pan and stir to coat with the grease and to keep them from sticking. Liberally salt and pepper the potatoes and sprinkle with garlic powder. Stir and turn again, turn the heat down a little and put a lid on the pan. Check the potatoes every 5 to 10 minutes, stirring and turning so they brown evenly.
    3. 3
      When the potatoes are almost done add the onion to the pan. Turn and cook another 10 minutes or so or until the onion is cooked and the potatoes are browned and cooked through.
    4. 4
      Add the sausage back to the pan and cover everything with the cheese. Put the lid back on the pan and let the cheese melt, another 2-4 minutes.
    5. 5
      Serve with slices of tomatoes, a sprinkling of parsley or other fresh herbs or just ketchup.

      I made this recipe on 4/22/09 as part of mine and SO's dinner.I made this almost as written, the onions were added along with the potatoes.The potatoes didn't get as brown as I would have liked,but the recipe itself was very good.I served this with scrambled eggs and Jelly Jar Biscuits. This will be made again (but not to often, because I'll eat too much ;) ). Thanks for posting and, " Keep Smiling :) "

      Very good recipe! The only problem I had was that I should have added the onion when I added the potatoes as the onion needed as much cooking time as they did. I ended up having to pick out the potatoes so the onion would finish cooking. I will definitely make again though. Thanks for posting Alyss, please see my rating system.

      This was used to make breakfast tacos along with Chuy's Hatch Green Chile Salsa. The sausage was a reduced fat sausage and healthy fat in the form of about 2 teaspoons olive oil was used to aid in the cooking process. The sausage was cooked and the onions along with fresh grated garlic was added to the skillet. The potatoes were red skin potatoes which were scrubbed and cubed. After the potatoes tested fork tender, the cheese was sprinkled over all, covered and allow to stand for a few minutes until melted. Made for *PAC Fall 2008*
