Au Gratin Sausage Skillet Recipe

Au Gratin Sausage Skillet Recipe

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

"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!"

"Surprise!!! This is a great recipe! I made this because half of the family loves boxed potatoes. To my surprise even the half who don't normally care for this style of cheesy potatoes LOVED this. There is absolutely no taste of 'fake cheese' in this creamy hearty dinner. It is very easy to prepare so it is now apart of our Boy Scout camping dinner menu. We have used two cans of vegetables instead of the frozen to free up ice chest space --- just add them at the end only to warm up. Simple enough for boys to make and hearty enough for men to eat!"

"Made this tonight, so easy. I did not have a box of au gratin potatoes but I did have a box of scalloped and it worked out great. I also just used what I had in the freezer for a mixed frozen veggie. My kids and husband had it gone in a flash. Will be making again soon!"
