Sausage, Potatoes, Onions and Peppers..oh my!

If you're like me, sometimes a quick and easy meal is just what you need. Perhaps you're looking for a nice comfort meal ?

This is one of the tried and true in my home - the old stand-by. It's quick, it's easy and really, really good. I got this recipe from my mom and my aunt. They do it a little differently - I personally like the way I do mine a little better (shhhh!!!).

1 - 1 1/2 lbs Italian Sausage (sweet or hot, your choice) OR 1 lb. chourico if you like a spicy sausage - Yum!!

1 small onion - chopped

1 green bell pepper - or red if you choose!

2-3 large potatoes cut into chunks (peel them or not, up to you..i like to keep the skins on mine..more vitamins!).






Fill large pot with cold water - put potato chunks in and bring to a boil - until potatoes are tender or soft, that's up to you. I like my potatoes to be on the softer side.

In a large pan, sautee onions and peppers together in butter and some oil until soft. Place into side bowl.
Next cut up sausage into chunks and sautee in more butter/oil until browned and cooked through. Remove and place into side bowl with onions & peppers.

Once potatoes are cooked..drain and place potatoes into the large sautee pan with the left over oil & butter -sprinkle with salt & pepper and some paprika. You may need to add more oil and/or butter .. get the potatoes covered with the good greasy stuff and then add in the side bowl with all ingredients.

Enjoy it! I hope it's one of the recipes you turn to during a day of "oh no..what do i make for dinner..?" like I do!
