Sausage, Potatoes, and Onions


A common topic at school during lunchtime was what we had made for dinner the night before.  One of the teachers often talked about this dish, and brought in the leftovers. 
Proportions are approximate and adjustable to your tastes.  But it’s always a yummy dish!!  Really good on a cold winter night.  Or a cold summer night, as the case may be, here in Monterey.

3-5 medium potatoes, peeled or not, and sliced less than ¼ inch thick
2-3 medium onions, sliced thinner than potatoes
1-2 pounds sausage (Italian, breakfast, or a mixture)

Make 2-3 layers of potatoes, onions, and sausage in a 9 x 13 inch pan or baking dish, breaking up sausage into small bite-size pieces. 

Cover and bake in 350 degree oven for about 30-40 minutes.  Toss around every 15-20  minutes.  Uncover after another 30-40 minutes, so everything can brown some.  Bake until
sausage is cooked through and potatoes are tender.

I've even made this on the grill when we had no electricity.
