"This is a Gooseberry Patch recipe;submitted by Teresa Podracky. It is a quick weeknight supper that takes less than 25 minutes to get from stove to table. I have changed it from oil to coconut oil and from regular cheddar to light cheddar cheese to make it diet friendly."

    This is fabulous and cannot recommend it enough to other parents/families. A great quick meal to have on hand (with 4 children and 3 after school activities, on 3 seperate afternoons, I need fast meals). I was a little unsure about the box of au gratin potatoes (no such thing is sold here in Australia) so peeled and sliced 5 medium potatoes and 1 sweet potato, then added 1 packet of au grating potato flavouring "three cheese" is what I had in the pantry, other than that, I made it as per the recipe. Hearty, creamy and filling while being cheap (I sliced 3 kransky sausages thinly). 6 clean plates, 1 happy mummy - this will be made again & again. Thanks for posting!

    I made this on 6/24/13 for mine and my SO's dinner. The packaging sizes were changed due to what was on hand. I used a 14 oz. pkg. of smoked sausage and a 4.7 oz. box of Au gratin potatoes. I added a bit of chopped onion to the sausage as it was browning. After adding the potatoes and the sauce packet, a smaller amount of water was used (just a little over 2 cups). For the veggies,3/4 cup of peas & carrots were used.After covering, heat was reduce to low and simmered for about 10 more minutes. Then the cheese was added,and covered for about 5 minutes more.

    This was a quick and easy meal to make when I didn't want to cook in the first place. I didn't have quite 16oz of sausage so I sliced it thinly in semi-circles to make it appear like there was more. :) Since my DSs do not like most of the mixed veggie combos, I only added corn. Was very good and my DSs who usually refuse to eat potatoes really liked it! Made for Everyday Holiday.
