It can be hard to make creamy, cheesy, scalloped potatoes any better, but this casserole does the job nicely. In the recipe below, crumbles of Polish kielbasa add lovely smoky flavor to a more traditional scalloped potato recipe with cheddar cheese. This results in a complete meal all on its own, which is perfect when served alongside a green salad for a delicious, balanced meal.
Kielbasa is a smoked Polish sausage that is pretty easy to find, but you could easily sub any smoked sausage like Louisiana andouille and get similar results. Use a mandoline to get thin, even slices of potato that will cook up quickly and evenly in the creamy béchamel sauce.
