Easy Weeknight Dinner: Cheesy Sausage and Potatoes

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!
