Cowboy potatoes with Sausage and Eggs


One of my favorite foodies sent me this quick, easy and delicious breakfast for dinner recipe.

For this dish,  Cowboy potatoes with Sausage and Eggs, you will need southwest hash browns, yellow onion, polska kielbasa sausage, and Perfect Peach Salsa  or( any sweet salsa will do).

This dish was named after a very hungry attitude one night after working a very long tiring day.

Once the refrigerator door was opened, a blank stare too ahold, when this passed she saw a package of kielbasa, a few farm fresh eggs, and cheese.

After rummaging thru the freezer to find another ingredient to add to this dish, to make it hearty, and also fulfilling, a bag of southern hash browns was just waiting there for the chef to create with. You know the hash browns that are those cute little cutup potato pieces, you can even use the ones that come with the added green peppers and onions.

The southern style hash browns are quickly put into a pan with a little oil, brought up to temperature for that mouth watering sizzle to take hold of the senses.

However have you ever noticed, when your that hungry after a long tiring day, anything on the stove seems to take days to cook!

While the hash browns were cooking, the kielbasa was cut up into nice bite sized pieces, a small onion was sliced up, and both were put into a frying pan with some butter to cook until golden, and the sausage nice and sizzled.

Once the hash browns were crispy to perfection, the sausage and onions were added in, mixing well for all the flavors to blend in.

Finally salt and pepper to taste,  try adding in your favorite seasoning blend, such as a hot and spicy mix, or an herb blend, whatever your taste buds desire.

In the same pan the onions and sausage were cooked, cook the eggs. If you like runny fried eggs, this is the perfect addition to the dish.  However I am a fan of scrambled eggs, so scrambled it is for me, when I make this dish.

Place the potatoes, sausage, and onions onto your plate add the eggs, and if you really want to take this to the next level add delicious wonderful cheese, I mean you cant go wrong with adding in cheese!

Place the eggs on top of the cheese, and you can spoon salsa on top of it all.

Salsa adds a nice deep flavor, and a little heat.  I like to use a peach, or apricot salsa, they both add a sweetness with the heat and added flavor.

Perfect Peach Salsa


See what variations you can come up with, perhaps add sliced avocado, or Salsa Verde.  

Sprinkle smoked paprika on top of the eggs for added flavor.

My passion for life is baking and creating in the kitchen.
From canning fresh produce and fruit each summer and fall with my grown children to
Flipping thru magazines and trying those impossible dishes.
However I always know that I can rely on the old family tried and true recipes.

I have written many cookbooks over the years, you can order them directly at, The cookbooks have reminded me that I always go back to finding my true self in the kitchen, when I am covered in flour, lost in baking or making the biggest mess ever in the kitchen.
Sometimes my kitchen looks like a tornado hit it! And I have a really small space lol.

Now that the kitchen and i have finally found our groove we are able to further the journey with sharing my recipes, thoughts, and kitchen wisdom with the world!
Gone are the days of rushing into the house after a long day at work, and trying to beat Betty Crocker at her own game , tirelessly trying to whip up a nutritious and delicious meal for the family, making it look effortless and taste good too!
Many a night was spent in my work coat cooking dinner, as I had not taken the time to take it off.
Straight to the kitchen , a glass of wine and my favorite casserole dish I went.
This is partly the product of being brought up on a salad, main entrée, with a ton of side dishes, and of course a home baked dessert!

However it was survival of the fittest for my kids as they grew up.
You had one chance to eat dinner, and if you chose to sit there and pout over the broccoli on your plate, many nights when dinner was over, you went hungry.
Ahhh those were the days, the days when parenting was free spirited and fun!

I hope you enjoy what I share with you, and if you ever find yourself looking for a little bit of those tried and true recipes feel free to check out my cookbook, there's something in them for everyone!
