Midwestern German Fries With Sausage Gravy

"This is a popular breakfast item served in a lot of restaurants in Ohio. It's a mixture of homefries, onion, green peppers and eggs topped off with sausage gravy. I like using either Italian sausage or sage sausage for the gravy. A great way to use leftover baked potatoes. If you don't have any leftover baked potates, you can put the potatoes in the microwave and use the baked potato setting. Let the potatoes cool to the touch then peel (or leave the skin on if you pefer) and slice."

    All the comfort of home and really yummy. This is great for and easy and quick fix of those get comfortable and have dinner or breakfast that will warm you from the inside out. I lightened the comfort as much as I could with non-hydrogenated margarine, veggie sausage and skim milk. Still Yum. Made for Crafty Lady's bonus win in Photo Tag.

    DH and DS insisted on 5 stars for this one. DH asked if I could make it again RIGHT NOW. That's high praise indeed. I loved the comfort food flavors in this and it went together really really fast! I only had 1/2 lb sausage and I doubled the recipe to serve two adults and a 19 year old eating machine. Left the skin on my potatoes and let them get nice and crispy brown before adding the eggs. It was a plateful and a wonderfully satisfying dinner. Made for ZWT IV.

<p>Update: &nbsp;I have changed my profile picture in honor of my dear best friend and loyal companion that I lost to cancer on 6/25/11. Maxx was the best dog that anyone could ever hope to have in their life. &nbsp;Until we meet again, sweet boy, you will be forever in my heart and memories. I currently live in the country with two dogs (a 12 pound&nbsp;poodle mix&nbsp;named Suki and a new member to the family, a 7-month old(?) 7.5 pound terrier mix named Angel ). &nbsp; I got Angel from the dog pound a week after I lost my beloved Maxx. &nbsp;Suki and I both needed a new companion to help us cope with our loss. &nbsp;Nothing will ever replace Maxx, but she has helped to uplift Suki's spirit. I am a secretary for a county school board. I love to cook, bake, crochet, paint, sew, read and anything to do with crafts. I was born in Tokyo,Japan. My father was in the Air Force and my moher was Japanese. I love to cook (and eat) a variety of foods from many different nations. I especially like trying out new recipes and experimenting with both old and new recipes. I also love participating in the great Zaar events like the tag games, recipe swaps, and Zaar World Tours. I recently participated in my first RSC contest. I have definitely had a lot of fun since joining Recipezaar. Update - September 20, 2007 I am proud to announce that I have just been blessed with my first grandchild. My son and daughter-in-law have given me a beautiful little granddaughter. &nbsp;[URL=http://s183.photobucket.com/albums/x147/Crafty_Lady_13/?action=view&curren;t=f6fd3ae3.pbw][IMG]http://s183.photobucket.com/albums/x147/Crafty_Lady_13/th_102_0365-1.jpg[/IMG][/URL] Make Reservation Online Create your own visitor map *************************************************** [Reply]</p>
