Cheesy Potato Sausage Casserole is easy to prepare and so tasty! Full of your favorite sausage or ground meat, potatoes and onions! A perfect weeknight meal.
If I am using sausage to make this terrific Cheesy Potato Sausage Casserole, Ken, my husband prefers Italian sausage and I prefer honey garlic. Honestly though you can use any ground meat and this casserole is delicious every time!I love easy, all in one dinners like this casserole. Perfect served with a salad or all by itself. This is total comfort food for me. I guess every potato dish is.
My grandmother used condensed cream soups for so many things and this is no exception. I have used cream of tomato, celery or mushroom and all taste great. I have to admit, mushroom soup is my favorite. Not only because I love mushrooms but because she used it almost every time she made it.
You have the option of adding a can of corn, peas or beans to this Cheesy Potato Sausage Casserole if you wish. I usually do, but not always. Truthfully, sometimes I forget which is amazing considering I have made this so many times! My memory just isn’t what it used to be. That is for sure!

- Add your cooked ground meat and potato slices to your bowl and stir until the potatoes are coated and the meat is evenly distributed.
- Cover with tinfoil and bake at 350 degrees for 1-1/2 hours or until potatoes are fork tender. I find that the cooking time will depend on which kind of potatoes you use. Just poke the casserole with a fork and if it goes in easily your potatoes are done and the casserole is almost ready!
