Hearty Sausage ‘n’ Hash Browns

Sausage adds smoky flavor and green pepper lends color to this quick-fixing and scrumptious skillet dish. It's just as perfect for a late-night supper as it is for breakfast! —Violet Beard, Marshall, Illinois

    Good base recipe, but waaay too much oil. Mine was so greasy and gross. However, we still enjoyed it as best we could and tried to eat around the oil. I will make again, but with just a few adjustments, add a few more veggies, less oil, and some seasoning salt.

    Love this recipe as is, but usally add onions to it and on occasion jalapenos as 3 out of 4 members of my family are pepper heads! Sometimes I crack 4 eggs into little indentions I've made before add the cheese and letting them steam cook till done to our taste, then add the cheese and let it melt! YUMMY!

    I added some onions,garlic salt, salt & pepper & still thought it was a little bland, however my family really enjoyed this recipe. No leftovers! Will make again.

    This is great any time, not just breakfast! We're not pepper fans so I use onions instead. It is another new standby at our house.
