  • 4 cups diced, peeled russet potatoes
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 (14-ounce) package smoked sausage, sliced
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups half-and-half or milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 8 ounces velveeta cheese, cubed
  • 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • salt and pepper


  • Lightly grease a 9-inch square baking dish.
  • Place potatoes in a pot of salted water. Bring to a boil and boil until just tender. You want them a little undercooked because they will cook more in the oven.
    Drain well. Place in prepared baking dish.
  • Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add oil and sausage and cook until sausage is browned. Remove sausage from skillet and place in the prepared baking dish with potatoes.
  • Wipe skillet clean and add butter. Melt over medium heat. Add flour and cook and stir for 1 minute.
  • Gradually whisk in half-and-half. Bring to a simmer. Add garlic powder.
  • Turn heat to low and add velveeta. Stir until melted.
  • Add half the cheddar cheese and stir until melted. Remove from heat. Taste for seasoning and add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Pour cheese sauce over potatoes and sausage. Sprinkle the remaining cheese on top.
  • Bake in 350 degree oven for 25 to 30 minutes.
