Potatoes & Sausage Dinner

This is one of my husband's favorites, is easy to do and takes only about 20-30 minutes. Not the best low carb dish, but I just each the sausage and onions and it's still fabulous. Not my actual pictures, but I haven't taken one of his dish yet. I'll replace when I do. The picture shows red potatoes and that's delish, but my favorite is yellow Yukons.

1 "Rope" of Beef/Pork Sausage - We like Hillshire Farms
1 Large Onion (white or yellow - we like the yellow because it has more flavor) When chopping cut off the ends leaving some membrane to make it hold together, then cut in half and then into sixths - this will give you bite size pieces that stay together. This makes the onions about the same size as the sausage.
2 tablespoons oil - 1 for potatoes and 1 for onions
3 tablespoons butter
Salt, pepper, garlic granules to taste

Bake the potatoes in the microwave on "Baked Potato" but stop it about 1.5 minutes before they finish. This will give you a firm but mostly cook potato. Let it cool until you can handle it.

Heat the oil and butter on medium high heat in a pan and add potatoes. Add salt, pepper and garlic granules to potatoes and let them cook until they are well cooked on both sides - they should have a golden brown crisp on both sides.

In a separate pan, cook the onions until caramelized, about 5-10 minutes. Add the sausage and cook together until the sausage is nice and brown on both sides. Combine the potatoes, onions and sausage together and sauté until everything is equally browned. Salt & pepper to taste and serve immediately. Serve with cole slaw, green salad or other fresh vegetables.
