A Lazy Weekend Breakfast

Sometimes comfort food is in order. Saturday mornings cry out for something more special than a bagel on the run or a bowl of cereal.

Behold! Fried Potatoes and Onions! Oh yes, my friends... a southern classic.

No one really wanted eggs, so none today. But breakfast rocked even without them. And yes, those are biscuits stuffed with sausages on the side. Hey, the fruit was healthy!

Fried Potatoes and Onions

1 lb. bag Simply Potatoes (it's the weekend! No peeling!)

One medium yellow onion, thinly sliced (divided)

4 oz. Hickory Farms Summer Sausage chopped

3 Tbsp. Vegetable Oil

2 Tbsp. Butter

Salt and Pepper to taste

Heat oil and butter in heavy bottomed skillet until hot. Add summer sausage, half of the sliced onions and half of potatoes from package. Salt and pepper. Add remainder of onions and potatoes. Salt and pepper again.

Cook covered on medium heat undisturbed to brown bottom. (about 7 minutes) With a spatula turn browned potates on bottom up to top. Continue to cook, uncovered for the remainder of cooking.

As potatoes brown on the bottom, move with spatula to brown more slices.

Cook to desired level of golden brown.

How will your sons adjust when they marry and the poor girls can't come close to cooking like you do??

LOL! No worries! They are both great cooks.

They even enjoy it.

The better question: How are they gonna beat the women off that are enamored by their cooking!
