Smoked Sausage and Potato Casserole

Cookin' Mimi: Smoked Sausage and Potato Casserole

This is one of my favorite casseroles and I make several variations of this basic recipe that I hope to bring you. It’s a pretty basic recipe and one that you most likely already have the ingredients for in your house. It does take a little planning since you cook the potatoes and let them cool completely before peeling and slicing but that step could be done the night before with  the potatoes stored in the fridge.

Smoked Sausage and Potato Casserole

Recipe by Micha

A filling casserole sure to please eaters of all ages.

Prep time: 30 minutes

Cook time: 30-40 minutes

Total time: 70-80 minutes

Yield: 6-8 servings


  • 1 pound smoked sausage, cut into rounds
  • 7-8 medium potatoes
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 3 Tablespoons flour
  • 3 Tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 1/2 cup milk
  • To taste salt
  • To taste pepper
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Cooking Directions

Scrub potatoes clean, place in a large pot and cover with water. Add salt, bring to a boil and cook until potatoes can just be pierced with a fork. You want them to be just barely cooked since they will bake in the oven once the casserole is finished. Drain potatoes and let them cool to room temperature then refrigerate until needed.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Butter or spray a 9×9” pan or 2 quart casserole dish. Sauté the sausage and onions in a skillet over medium heat until onions are softened and sausage has browned. Remove sausage and onion to a plate and reserve.

Turn heat to medium low and in the same skillet melt the butter, then add the flour, whisking well to combine. Cook and stir for 2 or 3 minutes then slowly add the water whisking constantly to prevent lumps. Once the mixture is smooth and bubbling pour in the milk while stirring. Add salt and pepper to taste and cook over low heat for about five minutes or until mixture has thickened. Remove from heat.

Peel and slice the potatoes. Add 1/3 of the potatoes to the buttered dish, then add 1/3 of the sausage and onions, and 1/3 of the gravy. Repeat layers twice.

Bake for 25-30 minutes or until the casserole is bubbly, top with cheese and bake 5-10 minutes longer until cheese is melted. Let rest for 10 minutes before serving

    Thanks so much for solving my dinner crisis tonight! I had potatoes that needed used up and a smoked sausage and half package of cheddar in the fridge. I added a bit of seasoned salt to the gravy and served green beans on the side. We really enjoyed it:).

    If I wanted to freeze this, at what point would I freeze for future dinner?Right before baking? Don’t do cheese till about to bake? (not freeze cheese?)

      I’ve never actually frozen this before so I’m not sure when to freeze it.
