Square Dancing Month and a filling meal idea

Turn your partner round and round it boot scoot and boogey month. September is International Square dance Month. My grand parents were square dancers back in the day. They would meet with others and dance to their hearts delight. Square dancing was imported to the U.S. from English, Irish and Scottish settlers. While fun and musical it is also great form of exercise. 

To work up the energy to dance the night away you will need a filling meal. The meat and potato meal is very filling and this one is flavored with onion, bell peppers and carrots as well. 

1 pound Hillshire Farms Sausage, Or Your Favorite Tube Sausage

1 whole Medium Onion, Sliced
½ whole Bell Pepper, Chopped
6 whole Red New Potatoes, Sliced
1 cup Baby Carrots
1 teaspoon Salt
¼ teaspoons Coarse Ground Black Pepper

Slice sausage into 1/4 inch slices. You may want to remove the casings before you slice them. I don’t.
In a large skillet, heat some oil and saute the sliced onions, chopped peppers, and sausage until brown. Then add sliced potatoes, carrots and spices, mixing well. Pour mixture into a greased 2-quart casserole dish, and bake covered in a 350-degree oven, until vegetables are tender (about 45 to 55 minutes). Remove cover and bake another 5 minutes, or until browned. Serve hot.

Serves 6

Tips: I added oil but next time I won't because the sausage has enough oil in it already.
