Potato Goulash with Sausage
Potato Goulash with Sausage is one of those dishes that remind me of home. My mom used to make it every month, and I adored it; well, I still do. Now, we make them for our kids, and using the hot dogs without skin saves us time, as we don’t have to peel them for our kiddos. You can cook the hot dog, but we prefer pan-frying it beforehand, as it adds more flavor. To make the potato goulash, you will need simple ingredients like onion, pepper, carrot, garlic, and, of course, potatoes. It’s an easy recipe you can easily make during a busy weeknight, and the whole family will adore it.
