Easy Polish Sausage and Kraut Served with Fried Potatoes

Easy dinner plate with Fried Potatoes, Polish Sausage and Kraut.
A couple of days ago I stopped in at the butcher shop for bacon and an Easter ham.  Our butcher specializes in all kinds of fresh sausages he makes daily.  He was introducing a fresh made Polish sausage and I bought a pound remembering I had sauerkraut already and my husband loves these dishes!

Ingredients for Polish Sausage and Kraut:

4 C. sauerkraut
1 pound Polish sausage in link form
1 t. caraway seed
3 T. sugar

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Combine the kraut, caraway seed, and sugar in a casserole with a cover. 

Top with the sausage and place the lid atop all.  Bake 45 minutes.  Remove the lid the last 15 to brown up the sausage.

Ingredients for Fried Potatoes:

4 C. sliced Russet potatoes
1/2 C. diced onions
1/4 C. peanut oil
black pepper

Heat a cast iron skillet over medium high heat and add the oil.  Dry the potato slices and place them into the heated oil, add the onions, salt and pepper them as desired.

Stir then cover and reduce the heat to medium.  Turn with a spatula in 8-9 minutes and continue cooking and turning.  These will brown and are ready to serve when tender.  Cooking time will vary depending on quantity and desired browning.  I start them a hour before serving time and just turn to simmer and keep warm if they are ready before I am!  Yield 3 servings.

There is a I- just- do- it like- this practicality of your "recipes" that I appreciate. I know I make good food..but I just bumble along and while I might say that I don't use "recipes" as in follow them, I know that I am encouraged, inspired and taught by the recipes I browse. I appreciate when people don't make cooking an ordeal or out of many people need to learn to just cook...keep this warm until everything else has happened and use what you have and reinvent and...enjoy and share...becuase people you love need to eat.
