Easy and Delicious, Member ohevshalomel

This recipe was simple to prepare, and the result was well received. Two types of meat and potatoes--the perfect man food! It's seasoned decently enough, especially if you use good sausage, and you can always add salt before eating if you like. I would definitely make this again.
