Recipe by Nancy in Texas
"With the variety of gourmet smoked sausages on the market these days, I wanted a recipe that was hearty, but still allowed the wonderful flavor of the sausage to shine through. With plenty of input from my father and my husband, this recipe was born."

While this sounds good, let me tell you how this really should be made. You should start w/ 3-4 potatoes (peeled or not, your preference), 1 bell pepper, chopped in large chunks, 1 lb sausage, sliced, 2-3 T butter. Melt butter in deep skillet, add potatoes and pepper, season to taste. After they have begun to cook, add sausage and cook for about 30 min. Wow delish! Almost exacty like your recipe, but fresh potatoes. And she's right....it's great!
I'm trying to figure out what the big deal is here. Outside of throwing in an onion and bell pepper, you could serve the two main ingredients (sausage/potato) separately, and it would still taste the same. Doesn't seem like there's any mixing of spices or anything here. Just sausage thrown in with a potato and a little onion and bell pepper. Good ingredients, but not much of a mix to me. Actually, if you scramble in an egg or two, you'd have yourself a pretty decent omelette.
Great camping breakfast. We pre-cut the onions and pepper and put them in a tupperware. Super easy to make. Great topped with cheddar.
I've made a recipe similar to this for years. I use fresh potatoes also and fry in olive oil with diced onions and I use garlic salt and pepper to taste. I also substitute ground beef and sometimes cut up leftover beef roast and it's amazing. If I can get fresh hungarian wax peppers, i'll add in with the onions and it's awesome. A lot of variations can be used on this. Wonderful!
I make a very similar recipe, but I add red bell peppers instead of green. I also like to use fresh potatoes, and top with fresh chopped parsley. Another way of making sure your potatoes are cooked through is to drop them in boiling water for about 5 minutes, depending on how thick they are cut.
This is a simple and yet easy recipe. I omited the onion and bell pepper in this recipe, only and only because the frozen hash browns I had in the freezer already had them in it. But I did kick it up a little bit with garlic powder when I added salt and pepper. Other then that, it was easy to make. I served it wrapped in small flour tortillas for my kids and added shredded cheese, sour cream and salsa for the ones that wanted theirs deluxe. A super quick addition for those nights you really don't want to go all out and cook a hugh meal, these are filling. I'm make them again.
This was really good. I rarely follow a recipe to the tee and I pretty much did in this case.
I used all fresh ingredients, added corn and cabbage; my kids devoured it!
