O’Brien Sausage Skillet

Inspiration hit one night when I was in a time crunch. This was so satisfying and easy to make, many friends now serve it, too. —Linda Harris, Wichita, Kansas

    Yum! Only different thing I did was use fresh Yukon Gold potatoes vs the frozen and used sausage that was locally produced. Delicious brunch dish. It's a keeper and I think I will make this camping for breakfast. VFE

    Very easy to make, and pretty tasty. The apple gave it a nice crunch and a touch of sweetness. I could make this again!

    My husband and daughter didn't like the apple in the dish but liked it otherwise. Quite a feat considering that my husband doesn't like potatoes. It came together quickly and I would do this again, maybe switching to a less tart apple.

    My husband loved it. He referred to this dish as "guy food". Instead of frozen potatoes I used fresh. I also used an organic pork apple sausage instead of the polish/kielbasa that the recipe called for.
