Dinner tonight

It's a cold, dreary day here in Kentucky, so I feel like some comfort food today.  This is a variation on something my grandmother used to make in her giant cast iron roaster.  It works out really well in a crockpot.

Ingredients:

5 or 6 large potatoes, washed and cut in to 1/8 to 1/4 inch coins
3 large white onions, cut in half and then sliced into thin strips
3 chicken or turkey thighs, or 1/2 pound beef or pork stew meat, cut into 1/2 inch cubes
4 sausages, cut in to 1/2 inch cubes (italian, smoked, polish, whatever you prefer)
2 cloves of garlic, minced
Favorite spices - Oregano, thyme, red pepper flake, salt and pepper in this instance
1 cup chicken broth

Assembly:

Use a handful of the onions to make a layer on the bottom of the crockpot.  Put in the meat in an even layer over the onions.  Sprinkle with the garlic and most of the spices.  Sprinkle in another layer of onions, then alternate layers of potatoes and onions until the crockpot is full.  Sprinkle the rest of the spices on top of the final layer of potatoes, then pour on the chicken broth.  Cover, and cook in the crock pot on medium or high for 8 to 10 hours.  Serve with your favorite green salad or vegetable.
