kielbasa and potato bake raw ingredients that are labeled

You will need:

  • 3 cups of russet potatoes, 3 medium sized potatoes, peeled and cubed 
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • 1 pound smoked Kielbasa sausage, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • ¼ cup of all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup of unsalted butter
  • 2 teaspoons of minced garlic
  • 1 ½ cups of 2% milk
  • ½ cup of heavy cream, 33%

  • ½ teaspoon of garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • ½ teaspoon of cracked black pepper
  • 1 can of cheddar cheese soup, 284 ml
  • 2 cups of shredded sharp cheddar cheese

SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS

Kielbasa: Kielbasa sausage is a U-shaped, Polish smoked sausage. If you can’t get hold of it, you could use another type of sausage such as chorizo, bratwurst, hot dog sausages or vegetarian sausages.

Russet Potatoes: These are also known as Idaho potatoes. If you happen to have a different variety of potato, those will work just fine for this recipe.

Cheddar Cheese Soup: To make this casserole less cheesy, try other creamy soups like cream of chicken or cream of mushroom.

Vegetables: This dish can be made healthier with the addition of some fresh vegetables like peppers, mushrooms, broccoli or onion. Just fry them alongside the sausage.
