- 1 14-16 oz pkg kielbasa or smoked sausage
- 4 medium cooked potatoes cubed*
- 2 tbsp chopped onion
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1 cup milk
- 1 tbsp butter
- 1 tbsp flour
- 1/2 cup process cheese spread i.e. Velveeta
- 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp pepper
*2 cans of drained whole or sliced potatoes may be substituted.
Cut sausage into 1/2-inch pieces.
In a large skillet over medium-high heat, brown sausage pieces on both sides. Remove from pan and set aside.
Add the 1 tbs olive oil to the same pan. Add the onion and cubed potatoes. Brown slightly over medium heat–about 5 minutes. Remove from pan.
In the same skillet, melt the butter. Add the flour and stir until flour/butter mixture is smooth and starts to bubble. Using a wire whisk, whisk in the milk gradually to prevent lumps. Add the process cheese (this stops the sauce from separating) and stir until it melts. Add the shredded cheese, stirring until that is melted.
Add the sausage and potato/onion combo back to the pan. Stir to coat with sauce and heat through.
