Sausage Stew

Sausage Stew

4 or 5 potatoes, peeled or not, chopped
1 ring of smoked sausage, not the breakfast stuff, I like the beef
2 or 3 onions, peeled & chopped
1 green bell pepper, seeded & chopped
1 package of brown gravy mix or a quart of home canned
spices to taste

In a large pot cook the potatoes till tender, drain reserving the cooking water if using the gravy mix. Put the potatoes back into the pot.

While the potbtoes are cooking, in a fry pan place the whole sausage ring with an inch or so of water. Turn on high. After half of the water has cooked out flip the ring to cook the other side. When the water is almost gone take the ring out to the cutting board. Add about 3 TBS of butter or margarine to the pan. Saute the onions on med-low heat. While the onions are cooking cut the sausage into 1/4 or so slices. You can cut the disks in half if you like. Add the sausage back to the onions. Add the green peppers to the onions. If they get too dry add some of the potatoe water to the pan. While that's going make up the gravy mix using the potatoe water, add to the potatoes & tvrn to med heat. Or add the home canned gravy. Add the onion mixtvre to the potatoes. Heat through. Add enough potatoe water or plain water to make it the desired thickness. Add breadcumbs a tablespoon at a time if to thin. If you cook it to thicken it the potatoes will
cook to nothing. Season to taste. Serve with slices of buttered bread.
Serves 4-6.
