Polish Cowboy Breakfast

My last post got me reminiscing about the scramble of my childhood, “Cowboy Breakfast”. This week I decided to make it. I made it on a morning that I had a day off so that I could spend time savoring the meal. I put some olive oil in a pan, started the potatoes and got the rest of my ingredients together. I made sure to leave the skin on the potatoes to add flavor. I when I went to the freezer for some bacon I was stopped in my tracks, kielbasa sausage! It was low fat turkey kielbasa but still savory and tender. Tasty enough that you wonder what kind of chemicals and fake food to which you are exposing yourself. No longer am I making the cowboy breakfast of childhood I am making “Polish Cowboy Breakfast”. Choosing between pork can be a rough decision but I chose correctly. Just reinforces that improvisation can bring you pleasant surprises.
