My grandmother used to make Jumbutt when we were young (I am sure I spelled it wrong). It is so easy, the amounts are very flexible and you can make a lot of substitutions based on taste -- pretty much goof-proof. We used hot dogs instead of sausage when we were kids. You can also use kielbasa.

  • Place the potatoes, green peppers, and red peppers into the skillet, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the potatoes are browned and the peppers are softened, about 15 minutes. Return the sausage to the skillet, and pour the eggs over the top. Cook and stir 3 to 5 minutes until the eggs are set, and serve.

This is an easy stick-to-your-ribs meal. However I would recommend one change. If you use raw potatoes the peppers burn before the potatoes are cooked through. I microwaved the potatoes for a several minutes and then I peeled and sliced them. Cook the potatoes on medium high heat then turn down the heat and add the peppers and sausage. Read More

We used turkey sausage and cut out the eggs (husband doesn't like them). It was just like a kabob to us. Might make it again with the eggs to see if it helps. Potatoes needed more time to cook they were a bit raw. Read More

This is "giambotta" in Italian which is where I would guess the "Jumbutt" came from. It is one of those recipes where you may throw just about anything in the pan. Leftover cooked meat any vegetables eggs (or not)--whatever. We always toss in some peppers onions pepper fresh basil and oregano but it's not absolutely necessary. It's great however you like it.

I made this 20 years ago using hotdogs in place of sausage. An Italian friend taught me the recipe back then. I was looking for something simple to make for dinner tonight and came across this recipe. I had forgotten all about this dish. I'd never heard it called by this name though. Whatever it's called it's simple and satisfying. Thanks for the reminder. Read More

I used ground pork (cheaper by the pound than buying pre-seasoned "rolls of pork sausage or sausage links) that I seasoned using a seperate recipe for italian sausage. I used two red bell peppers and omitted the green (we just don't care for them) I used the last two organic red potatoes I had on hand (that I parboiled quickly--as I just stink at hashbrown potatoes when the potatoes are raw) and because I had extra vegetables I needed to use I also added in fresh minced garlic chopped onion sliced mushrooms and right before adding the eggs chopped tomato. Right before serving I sprinkled the skillet with sharp white cheddar. Very cheap to make and I was able to stretch my skillet to feed four extra hungry people and make it a little healthier to boot. GREAT brinner side. I topped mine with a little homemade salsa. VERY very filling. I am quite thankful for this recipe as it really saved my behind today. Read More

My husband loves this! I usually make it with a little less bell pepper but I throw in other things like a zucchini or a couple chile or jalapeno peppers. Read More

I used Turkey sausage to make it a bit healthier but other than that I followed the recipe. I served this for my in-laws and they really liked it. I liked the combination of everything in one dish. I'll keep this one around for sure. Read More
