Opa is based in Fredericksburg, Texas. Their all beef sausage is some of the best German sausage I have ever had. Bela can eat two of them.  You can buy their sausage at HEB on 802.

The above is my actual meal for tonight - eating late - been busy on emergency project.

There are different ways to make German fried potatoes, but I promise you this one will not fail you.

Peel and slice enough potatoes for your family.  You then need to dice enough white onion and bell pepper to mix with the potatoes - I just eye it.  You place a little olive oil in a frying pan and then slowly stir fry the potatoes on a medium heat until they begin to naturally sweat.  At this point add salt, pepper, paprika, and the onions and peppers.  Mix well and turn down to a simmer. 

You then take enough sausage for your family and split them down the middle.  Place them on top of the potatoes split side down, cover and 30 minutes or so later - you have a great meal.  A little mustard on the sausage and heaven awaits.

If you want to make the potatoes without the sausage for some other type side meal, add a little garlic rosemary seasoning.  I do not do this with the sausage because the sausage already adds a lot of other flavors.

Note:  before you let your family see the meal, drain the sausage fat from the bottom of the pan.  It is not much, but it presents better without all of the sausage fat sitting at the bottom of the frying pan.

Opa's sausages are the best! I love to cut them length wise in fours, grill em and then put them in a grilled corn tortilla.

There is another one at HEB called Italian Wedding Sausage that is very tasty as well. Rub with olive oil and season with Uncle Chris seasoning and grill. Delicious
Your dish looks pretty darn good!
will have to try
