Au Gratin Sausage Skillet

Using frozen vegetables and a package of au gratin potatoes, I can get this satisfying stovetop supper on the table in no time. Even our oldest daughter, who can be a picky eater, loves it - and it is an excellent way of getting her to eat her vegetables. —Penny Greene, Lancaster, Ohio

    This was terrible! The potatoes stuck to the pan. Absolutely no flavor. I threw it away.

    Followed the recipe exactly and a large portion of my potatoes and sausage burned to the bottom of the skillet. Otherwise, flavor was decent, but kind of disappointed and will next time use a lower temperature than medium.

    Just two of us so I cut the sausage in half. Other than that I made it as written I thought it needed some changes. I made it again last night. I sautéed the sausage in butter instead of oil until a little brown, removed it from the pan. I used 2 cups of water and 1/2 cup of whole milk, it thickened more than I like so added a little more milk. This time I used only 1/2 cup of frozen peas instead of 8-ounces of vegetable blend. We both liked it better with the few changes. I would give it 3 stars as written, but 5 stars after my changes.

    This was an easy weeknight recipe with simple ingredients! My husband loved it a lot it's very nice comfort food. We also baked it in the oven with a little extra cheese.
