Bring in the new year with this tasty side dish of Sausage & Potato Hash!
I’m sure most of us are gearing up for the New Year. Have you started those resolutions yet? My husband is doing the ‘biggest loser’ at his work, trying to get employees motivated to loose weight. I think we are going to do it together, or at least together but not, since I won’t be part of the work competition. We both have weight to loose to get back to where we should be. It’s pretty bad when 2015 was our rough year, but we are still trying to loose the weight that crept up on us during that tough time. Isn’t it frustrating when that happens? Stress has a way of leaving some baggage hanging around in more ways than one, doesn’t it?
In the meantime though, this Sausage & Potato Hash is a recipe that we had at a recent get together at church and then it occurred to me that I hadn’t blogged about that one, plus it’s a great side item for parties this weekend too. We like to eat it as a meal also, with a few extra veggies. This is super easy to make with Potatoes O’Brien because you will already have peppers and onions mixed in to the bagged mix. Now, all you need to do is fry up those potatoes in a tiny bit of oil and add in the sausage cocktails. I like to add in a little bit of garlic, salt, and pepper too. We even like to add an egg on top too, it’s up to you with how you want to customize them. These are great to serve in a slow cooker for a party to keep them nice and toasty.
Do you have go-to recipes for parties this weekend? I’d love to hear a few! In the meantime, we’ll be snacking on these while ringing in the new year.
Happy ‘Almost’ 2017!
…sounds crazy to say that, doesn’t it? Wasn’t it just 2000 and Y2K craze, yesterday?
