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!

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!

This is an awesome recipe! I think you can add to it, but it is wonderful as is. The only thing I did different was to put a little bit of french fried onions on top of each serving. Thanks Stacky5, what a great recipe from your Mom! :o)

Good, but way too rich for our taste, this is what we call "ice fishin" food in WI! I'd make it again if I had a crowd of hungry people to feed, but I would add more meat as others suggested.

Holy cow I LOVED this! It reminded me of something I used to make when I was younger and still at home with my parents. Definetely a comfort food. I used turkey smoked sausage;)
