This is so easy to put together with only 5 ingredients. Its a very hearty meal that can be used as a side dish or a main meal.

- 8 ounces cream cheese (softened)
- 10 1⁄2 ounces cream of celery soup
- 1 ounce dry ranch dressing mix
- Spray slow cooker with Pam.
- Cut potatoes into wedges or whatever size pieces your family likes. You can leave the skins off or on (we like them on)throw them in the pot.
- Cut sausage into 1/4" slices and throw them into the pot.
- In a bowl blend softened cream chees, cream of celery soup and envelope of dry ranch dressing mix. Pour over Potatoes and sausage.
- give it a little stir

I would give this a 4 1/2 star, but DH overruled me and said 5 stars, 12 month old inhaled the potatoes, which he ususally doesn't care for. I used about a pound and a half yukon gold potatoes I had on hand and about a pound of browned kielbasa sausage. Left the other amounts the same, but added a can full of chicken stock, some garlic and salt / pepper. The end result was good, I think without the extra liquid the sauce might have been too thick for us. As I made it, turned into a nice gravy consistency, was a tad salty for my taste, would probably add low sodium broth/soup and no salt next time. Used some homemade wheat bread to soak up the sauce and garlic green beans on the side. Very good and pretty darn easy! Will make again soon per DH request!
I love this recipe. The sauce is divine. I have made this many times, and everyone always loves it. I use about half the package of dry ranch dressing mix, but it is not too salty even using the whole package.
You can also add some chopped onion, a sliced carrot or two, a touch of minced garlic, a couple fresh mushrooms and a dash of red pepper flakes if you wish. I have even substituted the potatoes with turnips or rutabagas. The supreme sauce loves experimentation.
Thanks you, Heather. This is a definite keeper.
I chose to try this recipe for the title, Stupid Easy as that is what I needed. I followed the recipe except to add a cup of chicken broth as suggested in some of the reviews as it really looked too thick. I did add onions and garlic powder and black pepper. Hubby loved it and the recipe used things that I have in my pantry. So for me this was a win win situation.
