Sausage and bacon covered with delicious gravy! This recipe is not only very easy to prepare but it also reminds me of a lot of my childhood days! This was my favorite food growing up. Today, I figured, why not let my kids taste my favorite food when I was their age? They loved it! Well, who wouldn’t? By the way, be very generous with the green onions when you garnish. It gives a lot of flavor to this dish!
