Easy Weeknight Dinner: Cheesy Sausage and Potatoes

It’s budget-friendly and quick to throw together, but also hearty and full of flavor.

Weeknight dinners can be rough. Between work schedules, homework sessions and soccer practice, it’s hard to find the time to make a big dinner. That’s why we love this recipe for cheesy sausage and potatoes. It’s budget-friendly and quick to throw together, but also hearty and full of flavor. It doesn’t get much better than that!

Meat and potatoes get a facelift without getting complicated in this yummy dish because we use tender new potatoes and smokey diced kielbasa. We finish it off with herbs and a generous amount of cheddar cheese to tie everything together. Best of all, this meal only uses one pan, and there’s nothing we like better than easy cleanup!
