Cheesy Potato & Smoked Sausage Casserole


Tammy T Recipe

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.
