How to make creamy sausage and potato casserole

Print this recipe
Sausages and potatoes were just meant to go together, weren't they? If you've been serving them the same old way, with cooked sausages beside that pile of mashed potatoes, you've got to give the following recipe a try. It brings all the creaminess you're craving, and the spices from the sausage really shine through.
One of the best things about this recipe is that it uses just a few ingredients and comes together in no time at all. Cream of mushroom soup, a staple for casseroles, helps to create the sauce, and because there's not a ton of other ingredients, the sausage really gets to be the star. This is one dish that proves that simple really does mean scrumptious.
