Kid Friendly – Kids and adults both enjoy this slow cooker sausage and potatoes dish. My son gobbled it right up, which he is picky.
Bake In Oven – If you don’t want to make this in the crockpot, I share how to bake the sausage potato casserole in the oven in the recipe card.
Cubed Potatoes – I used frozen cubed potatoes with peppers and onions. You can use just cubed potatoes or even hash browns if you prefer.
Kielbasa – Smoked sausage of any brand works. Just dice up into bite size pieces.
Cream Soup – Any cream soup works, celery, mushroom, chicken, etc.
Sour Cream – The sour cream adds a nice tang and creaminess to the casserole that I really enjoy.
Broth – Chicken or vegetable broth works for this recipe.
Seasonings – Salt, pepper and parsley are what I used for this potato and sausage dish. Feel free to change up what you use.
Cheese – The cheese I used was shredded pre-packaged. You can use cheddar, Monterey jack, etc.
- Use 1/2 small onion you dice and toss in. Yellow or white onion work best.
- Use fresh diced potatoes instead of frozen. Just do smaller bite size pieces.
- Add in an extra package of kielbasa for a loaded meat option.
- Use homemade cream soup if you want, instead of canned.
- Add a splash of hot sauce to ramp up the spice factor.
- If you don’t do potatoes with pepper and onions, you can dice in peppers as well as onions.
How to Make
Step One: Add the frozen potatoes and onions with peppers in the crockpot. Then add in the diced Kielbasa.
Step Two: Now in a small bowl mix up the condensed cream soup, sour cream, chicken broth and spices. Mix well.
Step Three: Pour over the potato and sausage mixture and spread evenly. Then top with the shredded cheese.
Step Four: Place the lid on the crockpot and let the mixture cook on low for 4-5 hours or high 3-4.
Pro Tip: Make sure to not over-cook the potatoes or it will become mushy and become more of a thicker soup style than a casserole form.
Go right ahead and store your leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge. You will find the potato and sausage mixture will store for 2-3 days just fine.
To reheat you can warm up in the microwave, or cover in foil in a casserole dish and then reheat in the oven.
