Cheese, Potato, and Smoked Sausage Casserole


3 russet potatoes

1 smoked sausage

4 tbsp butter

4 tbsp flour

2 cups milk

1/2 tsp salt

1/4 tsp pepper

1/4 tsp garlic powder

1/4 tsp onion powder

1/2 lb Velveeta cheese, cut into cubes

1/2 cup shredded taco cheese

1/4 tsp paprika


Preheat oven to 350.

Boil the potatoes until tender.

While the potatoes are boiling, cut the sausage in half, lengthwise, and slice into small pieces. Cook in a skillet until slightly brown, about 12 minutes.

Once the potatoes are finished cooking, cut them into cubes and place in a casserole dish.

Combine the smoked sausage in with the potatoes, and mix together.

In a small saucepan, heat the butter, flour, milk, salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, and Velveeta cheese over medium heat. Whisk frequently, until melted and creamy.

Pour the cheese mixture over the potatoes and smoked sausage.

Top with the taco cheese and the paprika.

Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until the cheese is bubbly.
