Fall Into Flavor Recipe!

I'm participating in Linda's Fall Into Flavor recipe sharing. I looooove new recipes! Especially quick and easy ones!
Below, you will find my offering! It is one of our household favorites and is so good and yummy on a chilly fall or winter day! AND it is best served with hot, butter-covered corn muffins! Let me know what you think!


CREOLE VEGETABLES AND SMOKED SAUSAGE
1 LB. OF SMOKED SAUSAGE
1 LARGE ONION SLICED AND SEPARATED INTO RINGS
1/2 LB. OF BACON CUT INTO NOT-TOO-SMALL PIECES
2 CANS OF SLICED STEWED TOMATOES
2 CANS OF GREEN BEANS/ DRAINED
2 LARGE POTATES/ BAKED IN THE MICROWAVE
DIRECTIONS:
SAUTEE THE BACON AND ONION TOGETHER UNTIL DONE.
YOU MAY NEED TO ADD A LITTLE OIL,
DEPENDING ON HOW LEAN THE BACON IS.
ADD THE STEWED TOMATOES AND LET THEM SIMMER FOR A BIT
WITH THE ONIONS AND BACON. SALT AND PEPPER TO TASTE.
NEXT, ADD THE GREEN BEANS, MIX WELL AND LET THE FLAVORS SIMMER
AND BLEND TOGETHER.
PEEL AND CUBE THE POTATOES AND ADD TO THE MIXTURE.
LASTLY, CUT THE SMOKED SAUSAGE INTO SLICES AND ADD TO THE
POT! LET THIS ALL SIMMER FOR ABOUT 20 MINUTES. YOU MAY NEED TO ADD
SOME WATER, DEPENDING ON HOW "SOUPY" YOU WANT IT
TO BE. I DON'T LIKE TOO MUCH LIQUID. TASTE TO SEE IF YOU NEED
TO ADD MORE SALT AND PEPPER. I'VE ALSO ADDED A FEW DROPSOF LIQUID SMOKE SOMETIMES JUST TO GIVE IT ANOTHER BIT OF FLAVOR DIMENSION!
THIS IS GREAT WITH HOT CORNBREAD AND BUTTER!!
(OH, AND I DON'T THINK IT WOULD FIT INTO THE CATEGORY OF
"DIET FOOD"! *SMILE*)
ENJOY!!!
