Cheese and potatoes are kind of a bit deal around here, they are one of our staple main dishes or even side dishes, depending on the situation you can go either way when making these.
If you are a fan of cheesy potatoes, then you have to check out my Crockpot Cheesy Potatoes and my Ham & Bacon Cheesy Potatoes, you’ll never be lacking in recipes when you combine these three to your menu.
WHY THIS RECIPE WORKS:
- With minimal ingredients and effort this all whips up in one dish with makes for easy clean up.
- Making a large pan this can either be served as a side dish or a stand alone main dish because of the meat.
- With frozen diced potatoes, it makes this dish easy to prep, and easy to adapt as well.
We first posted this recipe in 2017 and I figured it was time to give it a little facelift. This is one of our favorite hearty recipes that I had to reshare it with you guys, there is no way that I couldn’t!
HOW TO MAKE SMOKED SAUSAGE CHEESY POTATOES, STEP BY STEP:
- In large bowl add your potatoes, pepper, onions, sausage, sour cream, soup, 1 1/2 cup cheese, salt and pepper.
- Mix everything together until it is blended and combined well.
- Grease a 9″x13″ baking dish with non-stick cooking spray and spread your potato mixture evenly in the pan.
- Sprinkle with remaining cheese and bake in oven at 350 for about one hour until cheese is bubbly and melted and potatoes are cooked through.
Recipes like these Cheesy Potatoes are really some of my favorites, simply for the fact that they are super easy to whip up and take minimal effort.
If you are a larger family like mine, these are the perfect things to make for dinner time. Yes they do have to bake for an hour which takes some time, but in the end it’s worth it.
HOW TO MAKE IN THE SLOW COOKER:
For this method you will start with frozen potatoes, no need to thaw, they will do this while cooking.
- Add all your ingredients into a large crockpot and stir.
- Place lid on and cook on low for 4 hours.
- Remove lid and sprinkle with remaining cheese and cover and cook again for about 15 minutes until cheese is melted
This is the magic with this recipe, they can be made a few different ways, oven or in the slow cooker, which is nice when you want to show something together and forget about it for awhile.
CAN YOUR FREEZE CHEESY POTATOES?
The answer to this is YES! I recommend freezing before you bake this, you just follow the recipe below and I recommend that you freeze it in a disposable pan, so you will spread it in there, cover with tinfoil and label and date and freeze for up to 3 months.
To reheat, preheat your oven to 400 degrees and bake for about 1 hour 30 minutes, since this is frozen you will need to adjust the time to adapt to that change.
TIPS AND TRICKS FOR MAKING SMOKED SAUSAGE CHEESY POTATOES:
- Make sure that your potatoes are thawed otherwise they won’t cook in the time allotted for the recipe.
- To save some prep time you can use Potatoes O’brien that already have the peppers and onion in them, or you can use shredded hashbrowvs as well, we have done this many times.
- Spice it up with some kielbasa instead of smoked sausage
- Use any cheese that you like, we like Monterey Jack, but you can use Colby Jack or Cheddar as well.

These are excellent! We didn’t have diced potatoes so used French fries. Can’t eat green peppers so used canned green Chilli’s. Didn’t have cheddar cheese soup so used Cream of Chicken and added some red pepper flakes. It was delicious!
This recipe was super easy to make and smells Heavenly!! I’m making for coworkers. We work overnight. This will be kinda like dinner/breakfast!! Thanks
Do you need to pre-cook the smoked sausage?
The sausage in this recipe is already fully cooked as the ones we buy are usually purchased that way 🙂
Such cheesy goodness!
Can’t wait to make this, thanks for the recipe!
