Cheesy Potato & Smoked Sausage Casserole

Tammy Todd Recipe

By Tammy Todd ttodd4jesus

This is a 70's dish I almost forgot about but I saw this on Food.com and remembered how good and easy this is and want to make again. It is a recipe you can make to your likes. You can add broccoli or bell pepper and change it up. I love recipes like this. If you want glutten free, use cornstarch instead of flour. If you want, make it with less fat. Its a very forgiving recipe. You can substitute: 1/2 lb. hot dogs, sliced into 1/2-inch slices OR 1/2 lb. ham diced into 1/2-inch dices OR 12 oz. can of Spam diced into 1/2-inch dices, instead of the smoked sausage.

    This sounds great, Tammy, and I'm so glad to see it calls for smoked sausage, my favorite. So many recipes call for breakfast sausage and I don't care for it. I suppose in most instances I could substitute. I will definitely be making this one!

    Just made this! It was really good. Couple of things I did not see is what size dish to use and I was not sure about the flour since it was not listed in the list of ingredients. However, it was really good. I only used 1 cup of milk and it was still creamy. Thanks for sharing!

    Thank you Leigh, I'am glad you liked it! Sorry, I did not realize I forgot to add the flour in the list, thank you for letting me know, I will fix that. It's 4 Tablespoons of flour. I use my big casserole dish and didn't know what size it was, but I'm glad it worked out for you!
