2 lbs. Irish Potatoes
1 lb. Smoked Sausage
1 Lg Yellow Onion
1 1/2 Bunches of Green Onions
1/2 Stick of Butter
Seasoning (Tony's, Slap ya Mama, or Tiger Dust)

1. Cut yellow onions and potatoes into petal-like wedges. Chop green onions. Slice sausage links into 1/2 inch slices.
2. Add sausage and onions into a large pan along with a 1/4 stick of butter.
3. Season sausage and onions to taste.
4. Brown the sausage and onions until sausage has darkened and onions have lost their yellow tint.
5. Remove sausage and onions from the pan using a slotted spoon and place in a plate lined with paper towels. Pat the sausage as well to remove excess grease.
6. Add potatoes to pan with remaining 1/4 stick of butter.
7. Add seasoning to taste to potatoes.
8. Once the potatoes are in the pan and seasoned to taste, add the sausage and onion mixture to the potatoes. Turn heat to medium-low and cover with lid.
8. Stir occasionally to avoid sticking. Water or milk can also be added to reduce sticking.
9. Once potatoes become extremely soft, stir with a spoon to achieve desired consistency. If browned potatoes are preferred, increase the heat during cooking and stir more gently and less often.
10. Once desired color and consistency is achieved, remove from pan and serve hot. May coat lightly with shredded cheese.
