This is one of my dads favorite meals. Be it for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. He absolutely loves this one. I pick a banana pepper and bell pepper and 2 onions from my garden. I cut them into small pieces. I fry up some Polish Keilbasa setting them aside once done to cut later on. I then dice a couple of potatoes. I add the onions and peppers to a small amount of Olive Oil frying them till soft then add the diced potatoes cooking these till done with a slight brownness to them. Then I cut the Polish Keilbasa into bite size pieces setting some aside for Buster, my Beagle, to eat as well. I mix a few eggs with Mrs Dash Table Blend, a splash of milk. Mixxing this till completely. Then I fry them till almost done and add the bite size meat to it. A couple pievces of toast and theres a full meal for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Is there one particular dish you love to eat at any time of the day? One that is quick, cheap, and very easy to make such as this? Thanks for sharing here as well. Have a great day/evening! HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

That does sound good to me. I think I would do without the Mrs Dash for myself though. Something that I like ever so often is a piece of bologna or ham and a slice of cheese on a piece of bread and put it either in the oven or toaster oven and the bread will toast, the cheese will melt and it is delicious. I also like to fry bologna and make a sandwich or just eat it with ketchup and bread.

I use Mrs Dash due to dad being on a low sodium (salt) diet. I love fried bologna sandwhiches as well. I cyt the slice so it looks like a windmill after fried. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

I cut mine too and it also looks like a windmill. If not then it gets that big bubble in the middle and curls all up.

Bob, the midnight oatmeal is what keeps your cholesterol healthy. Good job. Around here they serve a dish called baloney boats, I had never heard of it til I worked at the school. Fry baloney, put a scoop of mashed potatoes in the center and top with cheese. Keep warm til the cheese melts. I do not like baloney boats.

That sounds pretty good grandpa Bob. You might want to add eggbeaters for a lower cholestrol dish. I love sausage with peppers. My husband probably wouldnt like something like that though. He is a pretty plain,boring eater. He would be perfectly happy just eating chicken or fish every night. I would be bored out of my gourd though. I'm making meatloaf tomorrow, that should make both of us happy.

Eggs believeit or not are that much of an addition for cholesterol. Dad and I both have high cholesterol and our Dr said eggs are not bad for us. Unless we eat a dozen a day that is. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

Eggs are very good for health actually..and the most versatile of foods..u boil them fry them scramble them curry them soup them sandwich them..the possibilities are endless..and while we're on the topic..I hope you guys are eating the delicious yolks..they are the most nutritious part of the egg and actually help prtein absorption from the whites..cheers

That sounds tasty. I may borrow that. My hubby would really love it. I can usually do breakfast foods any time of the day. From cereal to biscuits and gravy. If it is breakfast, it fits for me.

This is a great and filling meal as well. I sometimes eat a bowl of Oatmeal after midnight myself. I seldom eat it for breakfast though. Odd? HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

I hardly ever eat cereal for breakfast. When I eat cereal it is usually for a midnight snack also.

Bob, that sounds great! We have something very similar... "leftover shipwrecks." I always have tortilla shells in the freezer, and eggs in the fridge. If we have leftover roast, steak, chicken, or pork (or even if we don't) we make these. Cut the leftover meat into small pieces. Put in a hot skillet with a touch of olive oil. Fry until crispy. Add onion, bell pepper, and leftover potatoes if you like. When everything is getting done and tender, add a beaten egg to the mix. Stir until the egg is cooked. Then layer onto a tortilla shell, sprinkle with cheese, a viola... an anytime breakfast burrito. Our favorite place to eat them is out in the woods on a cold morning for breakfast. They work great as a Weekend lunch, or a I don't wanna cook dinner.

I like all my meals, unfortunately. I did a Kielbasa meal yesterday. I had a head of cauliflower that I needed to use. Broke it into flowerets, put it in a microwave safe bowl. Cover with plastic wrap or a lid, microwave for 8 minutes. Cut up one Kielbasa (they have reduced them from a pound to 14 oz.) and cooked two more minutes. Sprinkled with cheddar cheese, microwaved til melted. Served with toasted whole grain bread. Makes kind of a broth in the bottom. On a chilly day this just hit the spot. We make similar pepper,onion and sausage scrambles at our house as the one you described.

I am not a huge fan of brocholi. I do love it deep fried quickly though. The bologna boats you mentioned sound more like ma child would love them. Not me though. A little maybe not not often. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

Yum! If I can find a low salt version of meat to use, I'll be making this up! Sounds amazing! Thanks for the recipe.

Oooooooo! That sounds really yummy! My mouth is watering! I'll have to remember that reciped! I like those one pan meals alot! I also like to have eggs for dinner. It makes a nice hearty and quick meal. I have never added kielbasa to eggs though. I should, just never thought of it. I usually make that with sauerkraut and pinapple and bake it in the oven. Now that is a yummy dish! I also like to make french toast with bacon for dinner. That's another favorite. I am not much of a breakfast eater so I tend to save breakfast for dinner. My Mom used to do that too probably because she didn't get out of bed until 2 in the afternoon unless she had to go to work!

This sounds delicious! I just picked banana peppers,bell pepper, and jalapeno peppers from the garden the other day and this sounds like it would be tasty for anytime of the day. I have everything except for the Sausage so I will have to wait to try this till I get back to the store to get some. Well, my aunt used to make Extra Cheesy Au Gratin potatoes with mixed veggies and polish sausage. 2 boxes of cheesy Au Gratin Potatoes 1 can of mixed vegetables(can use frozen) 1-1/2 cup chopped(cubed) Polish Sausage 1 cup of Cheddar cheese Follow directions on the box to make the Au Gratin Potatoes but before you put in oven stir in all other ingredients(Cheese,polish saugage,mixed veggies) and then bake as direction on box says. Cubed Ham or spam can be used in place of polish sausage.

That actually sounds pretty good, GB. And, I don't particularly like peppers and eggs or kielbasa. But, in a similar vein, I take a bag of ready cut fajita peppers and onions (usually frozen, but you can cut your own as you know) and stir-fry them in olive oil with a little salt, pepper and either curry powder or cajun spices. Then I add small cut-up pieces of chicken or shrimp (the shrimp can be pre-cooked and frozen - faster that way and cheaper) and cook until the chicken is cooked and everything is hot throughout. Just the fragrance alone is worth the doing!! You can even add a stir-fry sauce if you want so you can eat it all over rice. Cooks up in under 15 minutes if everything's ready to go.

Hi Grandpa Bob, My husband's all time favorite meal!!! All right! The only thing is he adds the potatoes to the sausage and eggs, and wraps the stuff in a tortilla. A great breakfast burrito. The best part is no dishes!! Salmon cakes is something I really enjoy for breakfast with potatoes on the side. I've seen some good recipes in this discussion that are very well worth trying. Enjoy some and post your likes and dislikes. Have a good day Grandpa!!

sounds good to me too. I'm too lazy to cook a meal for myself, and I tend to go to fast food restaurants pretty often. One meal that I find it really really cheap anytime, is I fry an egg on the frying pan, (2 or 3 usually) and I just lay it on the piece of wheat bread or whatever bread I prefer (I prefer wheat bread =p ) and add some ketchup to it. And there you go, there's my little fried egg sandwich that I enjoy having. Might not sound good to some of you, but I like to eat cheap; I don't eat one of those expensive meals, because yeah, they do taste better than one of those cheap meals, but it's usually not easy for me to fill my stomach with expensive meals :p happy posting :)

Sometimes when I want a quick lunch or tea, I grab a sheet of frozen puff pastry, get a tin of red salmon and some mushrooms, pop them in the pastry, sprinkle some cheese on top, roll up the pastry and make a sort of salmon and mushroom puff. It's really quick and easy, and you can have a salad on the side if you wish! You can make it in a roll, or cut the pastry into triangles and make triangular shaped puffs ... whatever's easier for you!

that does sound good, be careful though if you do research online onions are poisonous to dogs

That does sound like a delicious meal! I bet you get all of you veggies from your very own garden as well! I think that is great. Do you have chickens or ducks that produce the eggs for you? I hope that our garden is producing next year for us! That meal sounds like something my crew would like as well!

I don't really care for peppers, but the rest of it sounds good to me. I love fried potatoes with onion. The eggs sound good too. I love Polish Sausages. I have never tried them in eggs before though. I might have to try that out. I like to make scrambled eggs with some fresh basil and grated Parmesan cheese. It is really good that way.
