This Cheesy Sausage Potato Bake recipe combines potatoes, summer sausage and cheese into a hearty and delicious casserole the whole family loves! It’s the ultimate comfort food!
Once the cooler fall and winter weather hits I start craving recipes with hearty ingredients – things like potatoes, hearty breads, ham and sausage.
What’s even MORE hearty is to combine several of them together into one satisfying dish.
What makes me even happier is when it is a super easy to make one dish meal, which is what we’ve got with this Cheesy Sausage and Potato Bake.
Right now Buddig and Old Wisconsin brands are encouraging ALL of us to create some delicious recipes and enter them into their #MakeItDelish Recipe Contest!
I have been a big fan of Buddig ever since I was a kid, but the company goes back way before that even. Carl Buddig & Company and Old Wisconsin (making Buddig lunchmeat and Old Wisconsin hardwood-smoked sausage and snack products) has been family-owned and operated by the Buddig family for more than 72 years.
They value the importance of family traditions and for them family extends to its employees, sales associates, consumers and the community surrounding its plants and headquarters.
But back when I was a kid, all I cared about was that they made realllllly good ham. I remember one summer when I was in junior high I ate Buddig ham and cheese bagels almost every single day until school started again in the fall.
I would put slices of Buddig ham and a slice of cheese on a bagel, wrap it in foil, and cook in the oven until the cheese was melted. My mom wasn’t crazy about me heating up the house with the oven every day, but it was so delicious I just couldn’t stop.
While I still think my teenage recipe was a good, it’s time to create some new ones. Are you ready for the challenge?
To enter the “Make It Delish Recipe Contest” just log on to www.makeitdelish.com and submit a recipe featuring your favorite Buddig and/or Old Wisconsin product — plus the secret ingredient — and enter for a chance to win a variety of cash prizes each month through Dec. 31 as well as a chance at the $10,000 Grand Prize.
The secret ingredient for the Make it Delish Recipe Contest during November is potatoes, so I decided to come up with a hearty fall dish based on that theme. My potato casserole makes a whole dinner in itself or you can also serve it as a side dish.
Check out my Cheesy Sausage Potato Bake Recipe made with delicious Old Wisconsin Summer Sausage. If you don’t have summer sausage on hand, this recipe is a great way to use up leftover ham.
