Sausage Potato Supper Recipe

One Saturday night a few years ago, I came up with this dish on the spur of the moment. It was dinnertime, and I had to use what I had on hand. It's been a hit with my family ever since. —Nncy Russell, Englewood, Colorado

"Reminded me of a recipe my mother made years ago (60 or more) and she called it a depression food. Her recipe was with potatoes and hotdogs, but the idea is the same. Seems what goes around comes around with current staples. Thanks for a good meal full of good memories!"

"I make a version of this recipe, using hot Italian sausage instead of smoked sausage, which revs up the flavor considerably. I also add some red peppers for more color as well as flavor. This basic recipe is a good base for just about any seasoning you wish to add to suit your particular tastes."

"Even with the cheese, this recipe is bland as hell. You have absolutely no seasoning. And no, salt and pepper don't count. Its not bad, its just boring. I did this recipe with saut?ed sweet onions and garlic and some fresh chopped basil, a little Italian seasoning and I replaced the butter with garlic olive oil. Not difficult at all. And for an extra kick of flavor, you could boil your potatoes in chicken broth."

"don't be afraid to over fry this dish, it brings out the sweetness in the squash. I used russets since I didn't have red taters and used a combination of yellow squash and patty cake squash instead of zucchini. I also tripled the recipe but only fry what I want eaten tonight. Great fried a couple days later too."
