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

    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.

    I did not remember the recipe when I was in the kitchen so followed the directions on the augratin box and added the milk and unsalted butter, it was very creamy and delicious, my neighbors enjoyed it as well. I noticed previous comments about being too salty, this was not salty at all. I am thinking that the milk and butter act as a catalyst and reduce the salt from the cheese powder and smoked beef sausage. Thanks! Going to try this with some turkey ham, and maybe even some thick chili.

    Surprise! This is a great recipe. Was a little worried it would taste too much of 'fake' cheeseo-- it did not! Great taste and easy to put together. It is now on our Boy Scout camping menu rotation. They replace frozen veggies for canned to save ice chest room. Easy enough for teenagers to preprare and hearty enough for men to eat!!

    Surprise! This is a great recipe! I was afraid that it would have a 'fake' cheese taste from the Au Gratin potatoes. It was delicious. This is now going to be in our Boy Scout camping menu rotation. It is easy to prepare and equally good with two cans of vegetables instead of frozen to save on ice chest room. Easy enough for boys to prepare and hearty enough for the men to eat!
