This recipe is so easy to make. You could add a touch of chopped kale if you do not like green onions. The garnish (not shown here) makes it look more appetizing. A friend of mine made this for me on a cold winter evening. It is very hearty and tastes delicious. You can use whatever type of sausage you wish.

Ingredients

1 pkg
sweet italian sausage casing removed
6 large
russet potatoes peeled and chopped
1 pkg
block of cream cheese
1 dash(es)
salt
1 dash(es)
pepper
green onion tops to garnish
sharp shredded cheddar to garnish

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Peel and chop 6 large potatoes and put into a large pot.
2
Add water to the potatoes but just to cover the top of them. Do not add too much water!
3
Add salt and pepper to taste. Bring cream cheese block to room temperature.
4
Boil potatoes but be sure not to overcook so they do not become mushy. Do NOT drain the water off of the potatoes.
5
Remove casing from sweet italian sausage and fry the sausage until done. Drain the grease off of the meat.
6
Add the room temperature cream cheese into the potatoes and water and incorporate until well mixed in. NOTE: I removed the potatoes with a strainer and used a whisk to incorporate the cream cheese into the potato water. Then I added the potatoes back into the pot.
7
Add the cooked sausage into the potato and cream cheese mixture.
8
Garnish with green onions and shredded cheddar cheese.
