Jen’s Potato and Sausage Delight

This is my favorite dinner entree to cook because it is easy, delicious, and all the ingredients go in the same pan. It is also easy to adapt to individual tastes. Great for the cold fronts we are all experiencing lately!


  • I pkg of Smoked Eckridge Sausage
  • 3-5 russet potatoes (or 5-6 new potatoes)
  • 1/2 a bag of baby carrots
  • 1 large onion (white or yellow)
  • 1/2 cup or more of shredded cheddar cheese (optional)
  • 3-4 Tbs of butter
  • 1-2 Tbs water
  • 1/2 Tbs olive oil or Pam
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • Lawry’s Seasoning Salt

Preheat your oven to 350. Then, take out a 9 x 13 Pyrex baking pan and grease it with the olive oil or with Pam. Set aside. Take out a chopping block and put it next to all your ingredients.

Chop the carrots, onion, and sausage to the same thickness, about half an inch, and put aside. Then, peel your potatoes, rinsing them under cool water after. Slice them along their width to the thickness of a quarter (the coin), like you would for making potato chips.

Start layering your ingredients in the pan, one after the other in any order. I usually start with the potatoes, then carrots, onions and sausage, then continue on like this until I run out of ingredients. You should have about an equal amount of everything, except maybe the carrots. Then add your water. Just a little, enough to wet the bottom and create some steam. You can add cabbage to this, but then add less water. Add butter, being sure to spread it evenly. Add salt and pepper, with your favorite seasoning salt and sprinkle with cheddar cheese.

Cover with foil and put it in the oven for 45 mins. After 45 mins, pull it out and test the potatoes and carrots for softness. You want them to be soft and juicy, but not mushy. If they are too firm, put it back in the oven, checking them every 10 mins.

Pull it out, let it cool for 2 mins and SERVE!

I promise this will be a hit with your entire family and warm up any cold night. This is also wonderful served with side salad and french bread.
