Good afternoon! Welcome to another moment with Shona! It is absolutely beautiful here in RVA! It is Spring break for my three older kids, so you can say my schedule is completely thrown off! I just had to break away and get you a yummy recipe for Tasty Tuesday!
I am sharing a simple recipe my father always made when I was a kid, but I’m adding my special touch on it. Eating this made me feel a bit homesick. I just loved waking up to the smell of daddy’s potato meal cooking! There’s nothing like it!
You can use any seasonings you want, so don’t feel like you have to use exactly what is listed below. Also, you can adjust the measurements to fit your household. I really didn’t measure a thing when I made this meal because I was the only person making it.
Daddy’s Potato Dish, With a Twist:
1 bag of red potatoes (thinly sliced)
1 small yellow bell pepper (julienne slices)
1 small orange bell pepper (julienne slices)
1/2 c. bacon bites (you can make your own or use store bought. Find less sodium & real bacon)
1/4 c. Sargento Mozzarella shredded cheese
1 small sweet onion (chopped)
1 slice of Jewish pumpernickel bread (dark pump)
1 tsp Earth Balance sit free buttery spread (non gmo & its vegan)
2 Tbsp Olive oil
Kielbasa turkey (thinly sliced )
1 c. Grape tomatoes (cut in half)
- This is very simple to make. Once you have your ingredients prepped, put your oil in a non- stick pan on medium.
- Once oil is hot, add your potato slices and cook until soft. You can cover it if you like.
- In another frying pan, add 2 Tbsp oil on medium high. Once oil is hot, add your kielbasa turkey. Cook until brown on both sides.
- Check on your potatoes. If it’s soft, turn flame to low. Season with salt & pepper.
- Check on your kielbasa. Once it is brown, push to the side of the pan and add your bell peppers, onions, grape tomatoes & sauté.
- Transfer the ingredients from your kielbasa pan to your potato pan & season with all purpose seasoning or any seasoning you like.
- Add 1/4 c mozzarella shredded cheese & your bacon bites. Stir in and let cheese melt on low heat.
Optional: I had a weird craving for some pumpernickel bread, so this part is totally optional. I am a “Jackson” & a “Capron” so I loooove my bread! Lol!!
Toast 1 slice of pumpernickel bread. Add 1 tsp earth balance spread.
Grab your favorite dish, nicely plate your potato meal. And since I’m like my mum, I don’t like my bread wet, so if you’re like us, grab a small saucer and put your pumpernickel on that. And here comes the best part… DIG IN! I used to eat this with ketchup, but I don’t really use ketchup anymore unless it’s homemade or I have a weird taste for it.
Let me know what you think about this easy go to lunch in the comments below!
