Though I love to cook, Saturdays are hard days for me to get the motivation to stop what I am doing and prepare dinner. We are usually busy working outside or catching up on projects around the house. So, a dinner that is quick and easy is in order!
This is another “breakfast-for-dinner” meal. As mentioned in a previous post, I usually make a ‘breakfast-y” meal once a week. We really enjoyed this baked version of hash browns, peppers and onions, ground sausage, and cheese! (Sometimes it seems it’s the simplest dishes that taste the best.)
The steps to prepare and make this dish are simple and quick- the ingredients are few, and the result is yummy! What could be better, right?
- 1 lb. ground sausage
- 1 onion
- 1 green pepper
- 3- 5 potatoes, enough to line the bottom of a 9×13 baking dish, when cut into chunks.
- 1 1/2 to 2 Tbs. olive oil
- Black pepper
- Garlic Powder
- Chili Powder
- 1- 1 /2 cups of cheese. (Use whatever kind you like. I used Colby-Jack and Swiss because that is what I had on hand)
Brown the sausage. Drain. Set aside.
Wash off the potatoes. Cut them into small dices.
Chop up an onion in small pieces. Dice up the pepper.
Add the potatoes, onion, and pepper to a lightly greased baking dish. Drizzle with the olive oil and sprinkle with the salt and pepper and other spices. Toss to coat it all well.
Add the sausage. Mix it up just slightly. Sprinkle all of this lightly with some paprika.
Bake, uncovered at 400 for 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and sprinkle the cheese on top.
Return to the oven and bake for another 20 minutes, until the potatoes are tender.
Serve with eggs, if desired.
