Real Simple: Sausage with warm Tomatoes and Hash Browns

First off, I would like to thank Roz at La Bella Vita for becoming a follower of my blog!


It's Pub Fare..........it's simple. Real Simple....



This book was at the local library....I own one of The Real Simple cookbooks but this one had some recipes I have not tried before.



We like sausage.



Ingredients...........

4 TB Butter
1 pound (roughly) of Russet Potatoes, coarsely grated
1 onion, coarsely grated
½ cup flat leaf parsley, chopped
2 TB olive oil

Sausage (the recipe called for 12 sweet Italian sausages but I used larger Bratwurst)

Tomatoes – You can use cherry tomatoes or fat vine-ripened tomatoes

Are you ready for easy?! Divide up your dinner duties here.

Hands on time: 25 minutes / Total Time 40 Minutes


I grabbed two frying pans. Doug made Bloody Marys.



Melt the butter in a frying pan and add potato and onion, cooking until softened. Add salt and pepper to taste and get them nicely browned.

If you use a spatula you can press the potatoes into the pan, making a good crust. Notice my potatoes look like rice? That is because I used a ricer after cooking them....such a creamy texture. Try it!



Meanwhile, heat the oil in a second frying pan or skillet. Prick your sausages with a fork, cook, turning them over every few minutes. This will take about 15 minutes.

Pour off all but a few tablespoons of fat from the sausage pan. Add tomatoes. Cook, tossing around the pan occasionally.

I guess we are all in a 'quick and easy' mood lately. I try to find meals that are easy and tasty. Yours entered my list the moment I saw it.

Katerina - You won't be sorry. This is good comfort food and mostly healthy :-)

Brenda said...

Tina, this reminds me a bit of bangers and mash, just without the gravy, and that happens to be my favourite pub food. A perfect meal for a fall night. Thank you so much for sharing this with Cookbook Sundays. I hope you have a great week!

Rita said...

Loe your post because we do love our sausage. Our favourite Saturday night supper. And with that drink even better.

Tina - Love the pic of you standing in your kitchen with a bloody mary! I'm loving the real simple theme here. Things are so busy here lately that I need some simple recipes in my life. This looks delicious.

Rita – Oh yes….it’s a good one for a Saturday evening supper. Beer is a good pairing too :-)

Heather – I was hoping that fit the theme with Hearth and Soul! Cheers to you too. Oh, I will be on the ball this month for Food n Flix. Promise.

Drick – the ricer makes so much difference I texture. Amazing.

Jenna- Thanks for the nice comment Oh yes, definitely do split up the kitchen duties and get your man to fix one of the essential accompaniments!

Julie – I sure will, and I’ll grab you a glass too.

Perfect quick & easy meal - actually sausages and mash is one of my favourite, "no time, no brainer" meals. Lovely that you divided up the cooking duties appropriately - that's good planning that is :-)

Sausages + anything work for me! I must use my ricer more ... great idea for a new potato side dish :o)

Pierce said...

Sue - It was good planning, even if last minute...haha

Jo - I am thinking of using the ricer on sweet potatoes next time. That should look pretty. Are you thinking of blogging again? New year's resolution...hmmm

Fish Chowder to warm your bones

Quite a while back we decided to make a fish stew , the Mediterranean style with tomatoes. It was good but I have been craving a milk based...
