Smoked Sausage Potato Bake Recipe

My mom passed this recipe along to me. I often fix it for company because it's pleasing to the eye as well as the appetite. I rarely have leftovers, since second helpings are a given.—Joanne Werner, La Porte, Indiana

"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!"

"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."
