SMOKED SAUSAGE CHEESY POTATOES
So you know those little things called Funeral Potatoes? Yeah these are KINDA like them but I amped them up a little bit. Ok I amped them up a lot a bit because I’m the type of person who can’t just leave well enough alone. Ugh, it’s a blessing and a curse all at once. Like right now, I’m staring at these potatoes and I just want to inhale them immediately. But I say that about everything I make, or it might be because I’m writing this around dinner time and I’m starving but haven’t made dinner yet.
So the pool opened here this weekend. My boys are super happy! We get a family pool membership for a reasonable amount and my kids can go all summer long (along with my husband and myself) and not have to pay anymore. I mean, we live about 4 blocks from the pool and the kids are old enough now (well the boys) where they’re allowed to go alone so it’s a nice thing to have around in the summer time because they are literally there DAILY!
And this mama won’t complain one bit about that, it lets me focusing on cooking and possibly cleaning all day. I mean who wouldn’t want to have time to whip up these seriously delicious Smoked Sausage Cheesy Potatoes?! We are in love with these. We’ve always kinda amped up our potatoes because I mean who doesn’t want a little extra something in there side dish? I know that this girl does.
Well my friends, the little extra something in these Smoked Sausage Cheesy Potatoes come in the form of well…smoked sausage, peppers, onions and the addition of my fave cheddar cheese soup! I love adding cheddar cheese soup to dishes like this, because ANY extra cheese that I can get in my meal I’m a happy camper with. We are a huge cheese family, besides bread our cheese drawer is the next congested spot in our kitchen….well besides my baking cabinet, we will just refer to that as Narnia because literally thats what it is.
So these Smoked Sausage Cheesy Potatoes are so quick to whip up that you won’t want to do them ANY other way, unless you’re like my picky 8 year old and hate everything. Literally he hates everything, you don’t even have to tell him what it is and he already hates it. I don’t understand that, were we all that way when we were kids? I mean really? How can you hate something when you aren’t even aware of the name or what is in it? Oh to be 8 again.
Anyways, this is a bowl meal. Which is an extra bonus because it means less dishes! And since this gal right here is the designated dish washer, any time that I can have myself a one pot, one bowl or any of the like meals, I’m sold. Signed, sealed, delivered and I’m there. So what I’m getting at here is that this is the perfect weeknight dish, potluck side or picnic bring along!
