Recipe by Jane from Ohio
i found this on all recipes.com. It was submittted by Geneva. I tweeked it a bit and everyone loves it. It's also an excellent dish to take to a potluck dinner. Some reviewers stated it was "soupy". I just keep baking it until it get's thick. Sometimes I have to bake it 2 hours. It really does get thick. The last few times I made it I made it with 1 cup of milk. It seemed to get thicker quicker. I am going to change the amount of milk. One reviewer noted that the spices were too much. My family does not like all the garlic either. They said that there is enough in the kielbasa. I don't use it when making this recipe to please them not me. I sometimes top this bake with Frenches French Fried Onions (Cheddar Cheese or Original)

This was amazingly good!! But I made quite a few changes. I was in a hurry and so used 2 14.5 oz cans of potatoes. I mixed cheddar cheese soup, 1/2 cup of milk, 1/2 cup of cheddar cheese and used a teaspoon of powdered onion and 1/4 teaspoon of garlic powder. I kept the salt and pepper and sausage the same. Then I baked this in a two quart dish for 35 minutes at 400. It was delicious. Doesn't make as many servings but my husband and I loved it. Hope this helps. Resolves the 'soupy' issue. Thank you so much.
- 1 (10 3/4 ounce) can condensed cream of mushroom soup or 1 (10 3/4 ounce) can cheddar cheese soup, I use the cheddar cheese soup
- 1 large onion, sliced
- 1 cup milk

- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 1 lb kielbasa, sliced thin
- 6 -8 large russet potatoes, peeled and cubed

- Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
- In a large mixing bowl, mix together soup, onion, milk, garlic, salt and pepper.
- Stir, in potatoes and kielbasa.
- Spoon into a 7x11 inch casserole dish.
