Fried Potatoes and Onions/Peppers with Smoked Sausage


We have a local Polish store where they make their own sausages, smoke their meat themselves and have the most incredible multigrain bread. That’s where I stocked up on the sausage for this dinner. I also added bell pepper, mushrooms, onions, garlic, and herbs. After testing out this recipe a few times, I am finally posting it for all of you. It’s the perfect dinner with lots of hearty autumn flavors.
