The winter menu at Cracker Barrel Old Country Store has a new breakfast item called the smoked sausage skillet which is selling for $6.99. It is made with chuncks of sausage patties, peppers, onion and gravy on a bed of home - style potatoes. It is topped with two eggs cooked to order and melted cheese. Read on to learn how to make this dish at home without much effort and limited cooking skills.
If you don't own a cast iron skillet, I highly urge you to buy one or two depending on the size of your family. A quick check at the Amazon website shows skillets ranging in sizes from 8" up to 15" and they are very reasonably priced. I own a couple of small ones and a fairly big one. You want the cast iron because it holds heat really well and you can start a meal on the stove top then transfer it directly into the oven.
