Cheesy Smoked Sausage & Potato Casserole Recipe

We had this for dinner last night (hubby cooked!) and it was so YUMMY!  I recommend everyone try this and come back and tell me what you think!  We are meat lovers, so I think when we make it again we will add more smoked sausage and possibly a little more Velveeta (I’m a cheese LOVER!) but the recipe is completely awesome just as it is!  This is another recipe that I found floating around on Facebook, so I’m not sure who to credit for the recipe or the picture… but thank you to whoever you are!

Cheesy Smoked Sausage & Potato Casserole Recipe


  • 3 Cups potatoes (boiled, peeled, and cut into cubes when cool; approx. 1 lb.)
  • 4 Tbsp butter
  • 4 Tbsp flour
  • 2 Cups milk
  • 1/2 Tsp salt
  • 1/4 Tsp pepper
  • 1/2lb Velveeta cheese (diced)
  • 1/2 cup sharp cheddar cheese (shredded)
  • 1lb skinless smoked sausage
  • 1/8 Tsp paprika


Step 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.
Step 2
Meanwhile, put cooked & diced potatoes in 2 quart casserole. Add cooked meat and give it a gentle toss.
Step 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.).
Step 4
Pour white/cheese sauce over potatoes and meat. Sprinkle shredded sharp cheddar cheese on top, and then sprinkle paprika evenly over the top.
Step 5
Bake in preheated 350°F oven for 35-45 minutes (watch, until golden brown on top).
Step 6
NOTE: 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.

  1. Don’t you just love it when hubby cooks?! This looks so easy-cheesy and would be great for a cold evening – which we are, unfortunately, still having! I could also see taking this to a potluck.

  2. OOh not only does it sound delicious with my favorite ingredients like smoked sausage & cheese, it looks dleicious too. What a way to go off my diet. It is worth it I’m sure. Will have to try this soon.

  3. I made this for our bible study group potluck. Rave reviews and requests for it again. Loved it.
