Katera Reiff


3 c. peeled cubed Russet potatoes, boiled until soft but not mushy
1 lb. smoked sausage* thinly sliced
4 tbsp. butter
4 tbsp. flour
2 c. half & half or milk
salt & pepper to taste
1/2 lb. Velveeta cheese cubed
1/2 c. shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1/4 tsp. smoked paprika

1. In a large skillet, over medium low heat, saute the sausage with 1-2 tbsp. of olive oil flipping and stirring until they've
browned a bit.
2. Lightly spray a 9x13" baking dish with non-stick cooking spray. Transfer the cooked potatoes and sausage to a
casserole dish, stirring just enough to evenly distribute.
3. Turn the heat up to medium and add the butter to the skillet. When melted, whisk in the flour. Allow it to cook about a
minute, whisking constantly, to get rid of the floury taste. Slowly add in the half and half, 1/4-1/2 c. at a time, whisking
constantly until evenly incorporated. Continue cooking until thickened.
4. Stir in the Velveeta, paprika, and salt & pepper, stirring occasionally until completely melted and the sauce is smooth.
5. Pour cheese sauce evenly out over the potatoes and meat. Evenly sprinkle the shredded cheese over top.
6. Bake at 350F for 35-45 minutes, or until the potatoes are fork tender and the casserole is golden brown on top.
