This recipe appeared as a comment posted by "Another Larry" to an item on my favorite blog, The J-Walkblog. I haven't made it, but it sounds like a nice tasty and warm winter dish. Cholesterol be damned, I've got to try it!
Sausage and Potato Casserole
14-26 slices bacon, cut into 1-inch pieces
2 onions, chopped
2-4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
8-12 pork sausages such as Italian sausages
4-6 baking potatoes, peeled if desired and thinly sliced
1/2 tsp (2 ml) dried sage
Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
1 1/2 cup chicken stock or water
Fry the bacon over moderate heat until crisp.
Transfer to paper towels to drain and saute the onion and garlic
in the same skillet until tender but not brown, about 5 minutes.
Transfer to a plate and set aside. Fry the sausages in the same
skillet until browned on both sides - there is no need to cook
them completely at this stage. Layer the potatoes in a greased
baking dish, top with the bacon and onion mixture, season with
sage, salt, and pepper, and top with the sausages. Add the stock
and bake tightly covered in a preheated 350F (180C) oven until
the potatoes are tender and the sausages are cooked through,
about 1 hour.
