“POTATO STUFF”

“Potato stuff” was affectionately titled by Mitchell’s family. While the name may be simple, the flavors in potato stuff are complex. This simple griddle meal can serve as either a side or main dish. Here’s what you’ll need:

INGREDIENTS
  • Potatoes
  • Mushrooms
  • Sausage
  • Cheddar cheese
  • Seasonings of your choice
INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Cut up your potatoes into thin slices.
  2. Place potatoes on the griddle and cook them down. Season to desired taste.
  3. As your potatoes are cooking, cut up your sausage.
  4. Brown the sausage on the opposite end of the griddle.
  5. Add mushrooms to the griddle and brown them.
  6. Once the mushrooms have finished browning, mix everything together.
  7. Sprinkle the cheese over the mixture until melted.

The best part about “potato stuff” is that it’s customizable to your palate. Feel free to make this dish your own by adding seasonings or even subbing out the cheese.
