I have been spending a lot of time up north in Michigan this Summer at our second home. This has been great for me and the dogs, but hard on Mister Tipsy because he has to stay back in Chicago and work. Having a live in recipe blogger has spoiled him with delicious daily meals prepared for him. Since I have been gone, he has had to learn to cook for himself. When I am home, I teach him some of the easy recipes I make for him. This Sausage and Onion Skillet is one of his favorites that his Mom used to make for him. He insists on cooking this dish in an electric skillet, because this is how his Mom made it for him. The issue we had was the clean up. Mister is not the best dish washer to begin with so making a mess in a bulky electric skillet presented a problem for him and me. That is until I discovered my new favorite cleaning products. Palmolive®​ Ultra Strength Dish Soap and Scotch-Brite® Advanced Scrub Dots Non-Scratch Scrubbers that come in a 2pk. These two products have been a life saver when it comes to getting Mister Tipsy to clean up his cooking messes . I also love it because I am able to order these products for him online so he can pick up and get home to cook and clean up after himself.

The recipe he makes is very simple. All you need to make this recipe is:

  • 1 Package of Smoked Sausages with Cheese
  • 2 Cups of Egg Noodles, Cooked
  • 2 Tablespoons of Butter
  • 1 Small Yellow Onion, Minced

Lets Get Cooking

You can use any skillet, but in Mister Tipsy’s case he uses his Mom’s electric skillet. All you have to do is heat the skillet up, add the butter and cook your onions until they are slightly browned.

You want to make sure to get them caramelized and cooked to a deep brown color in your skillet. This used to be the part I worried about. Mister Tipsy would follow this direction and then never be able to get the pan clean. the grease from the butter and the browning of the onions used to make it very hard for him to clean before he would run out of patience.   Palmolive®​ Ultra Strength concentrated liquid dish soap formula, instantly cuts through grease. I won’t tell him I told you this, but he also loves it because while it’s tough on grease, it’s also soft on his hands. Plus you don’t have to use very much.​

The next step is to take your smoked sausage with cheese, slice it into quarters and add it to your pan with the onions and butter. The sausage is already fully cooked, you just want to cook it long enough to get it brown and get that cheese nice and melted in the pan. The cheese will be easy to clean because you can use the Scotch-Brite®​ Advanced Scrub Dots Non Scratch Scrubbers and get that pan nice and clean without worrying about scratching. This is important to me because we inherited this electric skillet from his Mom and I want to keep it in perfect condition. Because the Scotch-Brite®​ Scrubbers are non scratch, they are safe on non stick cookware. I also love that the sponges dry fast and rinse clean without trapping food.​

When the sausages are golden brown you remove the sausage and onions from the pan and toss them with your cooked egg noodles. You have a perfect easy meal in just a few minutes.

Now Let’s Get To The Good Part, The Clean Up

You need to get out one of your Scotch-Brite®​ Advanced Scrub Dot Scrubbers, that resist odors, and scrub that pan clean using your Palmolive®​ Ultra Strength.​

With one swipe of your Scotch-Brite®​ scrubber and just a tiny bit of your Palmolive®​ Ultra Strength dish soap your pan is clean!

I am amazed every time I come home to clean dishes when Mister has been cooking for himself. It encourages him to cook more for himself and gives me more time to spend with him without yelling how dirty everything is.

I also love the fact that I come home to a sponge that isn’t smelly and hands that are soft.

You can get everything you need for this recipe and the clean up by ordering from Walmart’s Online Grocery.
