When Bev and Pat (SIL) headed off to Florida and left me to fend for myself, I told her I was going to try and eat items that had been languishing in the freezer for a while. The first thing I got out was a package of Spinach Asiago Chicken Sausage from Sam’s, and grilled two links for a sandwich.
Then along comes Mary’s recipe for Smothered Stewed Potatoes, on her Deep South Dish blog and since I like potatoes and I like gravy, it seemed prefect. One of her alternates was to add Andouille and green pepper, but I had three links of this sausage and a nice red pepper – close enough. I followed the recipe as shown on her blog starting with a sauté of the sausage and pepper in a 75/25 olive oil/bacon grease mixture.
I sided the potatoes with a wedge of lettuce topped with some Newman’s Caesar Dressing (all I could find) and grated Romano Cheese – the taters got some as well.
The potatoes were outstanding and I have lots left over for other meals. I can see they would work well with a variety of meats in them.
And for breakfast next morning, I fried some in a little olive oil.
The fried cheese caused them come out of the pan a little hard but they still looked pretty good and when cut up with the eggs, tasted outstanding again.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by Almost Heaven South.
