Fried Potatoes and Onions with Smoked Sausage

This has been a staple in our house forever! The big kids like it, the grandsons like it, guests like it, everyone likes it.  Simple to do, which is sometimes best. Over the years we've added the Honey-Mustard Sauce, but you can certainly leave that out and just serve plain or with ketchup since most all kids love ketchup!  Big people like the Honey-Mustard Sauce!

4-6 medium potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced (Yukon Gold or reds are best; Russets are too soft)
1 large onion, thinly sliced
1 lb. smoked sausage, sliced into 1" thick slices
2-3 Tbls. oil (of your choice)
2-3 tsp. seasoned salt
2 tsp. course-ground black pepper

Honey-Mustard Sauce
1/4 cup grainy mustard
1/4 cup organic honey(whisk together and microwave 2 minutes or until bubbly; stir to blend)

Place oil in electric fry pan or skillet; bring up to heat (350).  Add sliced smoked sausage and saute' until browned; remove sausage from pan and set aside. 

Immediately add sliced potatoes and onions and dust with seasoned salt and pepper. Cover pan and cook, removing cover from time to time and stirring around until potatoes are cooked through and browned. 

Add sliced, cooked smoked sausage pieces back to pan, cover and continue to cook 5 minutes, or until heated through. 

Serve immediately with Honey-Mustard Sauce.
