Reviews forSmoked Sausage Potato Bake
"This was really good. I did make a few changes. Don't have potato flakes in the house, so just made up some potatoes and made them, mashed them with the ingredients and included Italian seasoning and garlic powder because we really like those seasonings. Also, instead of bread crumbs, I used French fried onions on top. Definitely will make this again!"
"It was very good and really easy to make ."
"husband ate it but no one else would. just an odd flavor for us, maybe mind over matter for me."
"Not sure what i did wrong but it is very mushy I am thinking it was the instant potatoes i used will try it again with different potatoes or homemade mashed potatoes. I added some onion and garlic powder to it so taste is awesome but to mushy will try again"
"Oh my word! So good! Needed a quick dinner and decided to try this out since I had most of the ingredients, and let me tell you, I will be making this again! I just put some cracker crumbs on top instead of bread crumbs, but still delish. I actually gave my mother this recipe today and she's trying it out on my dad tonight! Great comfort food!"
"Vaery boring. Not much taste to this recipe, only real flavor comes from the cheese. Extremely heavy meal."
"My kids love this dish and so did I! My poor husband did not have any we ate it all. Thanks for sharing!"
