Recipe Swap Wednesday-Denny's Ultimate Skillet Copycat

We love Denny's.  Denny's is our family diner and has been requested many times over when deciding where we should eat out on the rare occasion we do eat out.  (We don't eat out that often.  It's not a bad thing to eat out, but it's a definite treat when we do get to go out.)

One of my very most favorite things to order is called the Ultimate Skillet.  I love it and those that taste test off of my plate also love it.  So of course I had to figure out a way to make it at home.  We may not be able to eat at Denny's every night but we do eat at home pretty much every night and figuring out a similarly yummy recipe became a quest. 

And here is the result of my quest!

Denny's Ultimate Skillet Copycat Recipe
1 package of sausage links
I onion, chopped
8 potatoes, diced
1 red or green pepper, diced
Shredded cheddar cheese (about 1/4 cup)
1 tomato, diced or grape tomatoes
Fresh baby spinach

1. In a large skillet, cook the sausage links.  I like to cut them into fourths (either before or after) so that it's evenly distributed throughout the skillet.

2. Add the onion and potato and saute until the potato is softened.

3. Add the diced peppers and cook until the pepper is the desired texture.

4. Add the shredded cheese.  I use about 1/4 cup but you can add as much or as little as you like. 

5. Add the tomato and fresh spinach and saute until the spinach is wilty.

6.  And serve!  I like to serve it with fried eggs and fresh fruit.

**Note: This can easily be made into a vegetarian dish (ahem....Kristina) by omitting the sausage and starting off the process with some vegetable or olive oil.
