Cheese Potato and Smoked Sausage Casserole

Ingredients

  • 3 cups potatoes, peeled, boiled and cut into cubes when cool, approx. 1 lb
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 4 tablespoons flour
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 lb Velveeta cheese, diced
  • 1/2 cup sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1 lb low sodium skinless smoked sausage (Eckrich is my favorite brand)
  • 1/8 teaspoon paprika

Instructions

  1. Cut skinless smoked sausage in half, lengthwise, and then chop into 1/2 inch “half moon” cuts. Cook in a frying pan for about 15 minutes, turning frequently to SLIGHTLY brown.
  2. Meanwhile, put cooked & diced potatoes in 2 quart casserole. Add cooked meat and give it a gentle toss.
  3. Mix all remaining ingredients (except for shredded cheddar cheese & the paprika) in a saucepan over medium heat until warm, melted and smooth. (Use a whisk and stir constantly.).
  4. Pour cheese sauce over potatoes and meat. Sprinkle shredded sharp cheddar cheese on top, and then sprinkle paprika evenly over the top.
  5. Bake in preheated 350F oven for 30-40 minutes (watch, until golden brown on top).
