This is really good! Makes a lot of sauce. You can easily add something else (red peppers, broccoli, whatever) and not worry about it being too dry. Thanks Stacky5.....
Holy cow was this good. My DSS, 12, said it was one of the best things he has ever eaten. I dropped some small chopped brocolli in with the potatoes water for 5 mins or so at the end of cooking. I used left-over ham and subbed havarti cheese bc it was what I had. I added minced onions, like others suggested, and I also used skim milk. It was easy and real comfort food. Thank you, wherever you are!
This was yummy. I cut the entire sauce recipe in half to cut down on the crazy amount of fat. I also only used 1 tablespoon of butter, 2 % milk, and one sausage. Still delicious! Next time I will add cooked onions.
My family loved this! It was just what I was looking for in my 'what can I do with this sausage and potatoes to make dinner?' quest. My only alterations were not peeling the potatoes, eliminating the paprika, and making a cheese sauce out of a roux instead of Velveeta. Oh I also added frozen peas when mixing everything together before the oven stage. They added nutrients and some texture but really didn't lend any flavor (which is good, since they are my least favorite vegetable). My sausage was a local blend, one a venison and pork, and one pepper jack beef, so I didn't need the addition of onions or anything. If I had used a more bland sausage like Eckrich (or hot dogs, or any kind of ground meat) I'm sure I would have needed to.
I thought it was great as is. I melted the butter, then added the flour and cooked out the starchy taste, then continued on with the instructions. And when it said to sprinkle paprika on top, I used Cajun Seasoning instead to give it a pop, and it is now a family comfort food fave!
This is a great recipe! It's the same one I use with cooked Ham.I crumble Ritz Crackers on top instead of the cheddar cheese. I also cube my potatoes, dice an onion, salt and pepper them, and steam in the microwave while cutting ham, or in this instance, browning sausage. I can't wait to try with smoked sausage! Who would have thunk it?! <br/>Thank you for sharing this!
Had this to night and thought it was awesome!! I added onion to the smoked sausage when I was heating it up. Also used shredded hash brown potatoes.
This has always been one of our " go to" meals in the winter. Ive used real potatoes, but the easiest, and what I usually do is canned diced or sliced potatoes. Saves so much time and the taste is just not that much different to us. I also add a can or two of french green beans and diced onion to make it a one dish meal. For the sausage I usually use the Eckrich skinless Angus sausages ( like Polish sausage).or the Eckrich Jalapeno Cheese sausages if we want something with a little heat. Just alot of ways you can do this one and theyre all wonderful!
This was just awesome! I sauteed the sausage (Hillshire Farms All Beef) with half of a large onion and chopped up some leftover steamed broccoli into the mix. We used all sharp cheddar cheese (no Velveeta) and I think next time we will add more broccoli as it went so well with everything. I can't remember the last time I looked forward to leftovers so much.
Thanks for posting this recipe!
I made this tonight using 2 left over baked potatoes and 1 left over sweet potato, While browning the sausage (deer ring bologna) I added 1 whole onion and 1/2 green pepper diced. My whole family loved it, my husband who is not a fan of sweet potatoes told me he thought with out the sweet potatoes it would have been bland and to try doing the sweet and baked potatoes 50 - 50 next time. Also because the potatoes were baked I added a little bit more milk to the white sauce. This is a keeper and I know we will be making it again in the near future!
