Chef Chuck's Baked Sausage and Potatoes

Salsiccia e Patate al Forno

A comfort dish for tonight, baked sausage, potatoes, onions and red roasted peppers, baked in just a half hour. The aromas were intriguing, the taste was sweet, spicy and hot, and those crispy potatoes were delicious.

Baked Sausage and Potatoes

2 hot sausage links
4 potatoes, sliced thin
2 large onions, sliced thin
red roasted peppers
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons butter
plus 1 tablespoon butter for pan
salt and pepper

parmigiana cheese, grated

Saute onions in 1 tablespoon olive oil and 2 tablespoons of butter until golden brown. Butter an oven proof pan, layer potatoes on bottom and sides overlapping . Remove casings, layer sausage on top of potatoes. Next layer is the onions, then slices of peppers. Arrange a top layer of potatoes, drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle a generous amount of cheese, salt and pepper. Bake at 450 degrees for 25 minutes. Serves 2
