I've made this several times for my family and it is, as I like it a really good meat and potatoes meal. It is a rustic meal and takes awhile to cook, but Oh is it good! I found this recipe in a cookbook someone threw out, called Prairie Home Cooking and of course I could not resist looking through it! It has all this information on the history of the recipes and where and why they came about. I am so glad I retrieved the book as this is one of my favorite meals to make and I love the book! What a wonderful find!

Ingredients

1 lb
sweet italian sausage links
4
medium baking potatoes, peeled and quartered
2
green bell peppers, or one red and one green bell pepper, cut into eighths
2
large yellow onions, cut into eighths
1 lb
mushrooms, whole (do not cut)
1 tsp
dried oregano
1 tsp
dried parsley
1 tsp
dried basil

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Heat the oven to 400 degrees. (this can be done on a grill as well, med-high grill). Place the sausages and the potatoes in a large pan or roaster, and transfer to the oven or grill. (put cover over if grilling) (I add the sausages whole, but can cut in half or in chunks) I add a little oil in the pot for the oven baked. You don't need but a couple tablespoons. Use large roasting pan. Larger than a 9x13. I buy those foil throw away pans.
2
Roast or grill them , turning the food several times for 30 minutes or until they have begun to brown.
3
Add the peppers, onions, mushrooms and herbs to the pan. Add a little more vegetable oil, a couple of Tablespoons. Roast or grill 45 to 60 minutes more. Check and turn occasionally until potatoes are brown and tender. Check that the potatoes are done. Ovens vary so it can take longer for some. I put a Tablespoon of mustard on my plate to dip the sausage in. I salt and pepper it also. Enjoy with your favorite condiment. Enjoy! Great company dish :)

****************************************************
This recipe was made in celebration of when slaves were emancipated (freed) and traveled to a town called Nicodemus, Kansas, named after the first slave to purchase his freedom and where they could buy their own peice of land and make lives for themsleves. To this day some of the decendants still celebrate Emancipation day. The town has been designated a National Historic Site, however the towns future is in doubt. But for many who still live there, the last weekend in July still means "home to Nicodemus" for Emancipation Days.
