"This was another one of our favorites in the 70's Very inexpensive and very easy to make. Just recently found this recipe hand-written by my Mom, and the warm feelings flood back to me, because this was a true favorite in our house. Little did I know that she was on such a tight budget, yet made things like this that we all loved!! NOTE: The meat that was used in this recipe always varied, according to whatever we had available at the time."


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


  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 white/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 350°F oven for 35-45 minutes (watch, until golden brown on top).
  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.
