I have also been doing this for a long time, my variation is to use sliced apples, ( good cooking ones) onions, cabbage and kielbasa. Use an electric skillet or large skillet and cook kielbasa first, remove, then cook cabbage, onion and apples together until tender and add kielbasa to warm through again. You can add or subtract any ingredients you prefer. Great on a cold winter or fall night.

going to do it right now got ham and potatos and tomatos and carrots lol mmmmmmmmmmm so good i hope

This sure does sound good. I don't have sausage, but i do have some ham left from Christmas. I think with some potatoes added to this and the ham, it would be really good. Any opinions?

I, too have made something similar for years without bell pepper and tomatoes. I use carrots & potatoes. One of our favorites.

How about using some left over ham from Christmas since i don't have sausage?

I made this for my hubby for years - but w/o the tomatoes - had no recipe. He worked construction till the sun came down and this was a meal I could prepare in my electric skillet, feed Son - yet keep the rest for Dad warm till he came home tired and hungry. It was one of his favs, & he said he always knew when it was "on", cuz he could smell it in the driveway!
