Farmer's Omelette

We actually lived on the Tiny Farm when we ate this kind of stuff for breakfast. It was okay to eat like this back then, because we spent our days digging and hauling and delivering lambs and feeding chickens and chasing down goats and milking and hoeing, etc. etc.

1/2 lb. bulk sausage (we used our own delicious and delicately flavored lamb sausage, but I doubt that you'll ever find anything like that in your grocery store so just go ahead and use pork sausage)
1/2 sweet onion, chopped
Some chopped red pepper, if you wish
3 potatoes, peeled, diced, cooked until tender, and drained
Salt and pepper
6 eggs, beaten
Grated cheese

Stir fry the onions and peppers in a large frying pan until just a bit transparent. Add the sausage and cook until almost done. Add the potatoes and continue stirring and cooking until they begin to brown. Season with a bit of salt and pepper. Pour the eggs over and continue cooking until they have set. Sprinkle with grated cheese, run the whole thing under the broiler to melt it, and serve.

Serves 4.
