Potato and Cheese Stuffed Sausage

We had a busy day today so I needed to find an easy recipe to make for our new recipe of the week.  We had some Hillshire Farm chicken sausage in the refrigerator that we needed to use, so I found a recipe that incorporated it. 

I went to the Hillshire Farm website, searched their recipes and found this recipe.  It looked good and better yet easy to prepare!

Potato and Cheese Stuffed Sausage

Sorry for the dirty fork, that's how we served them

1 package Hillshire Farm Hardwood Chicken Smoked Sausage
1 package Idahoan Buttery Homestyle Flavored Mashed Potatoes
2 cups water (for potatoes)
2 teaspoons creole mustard
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

We cut the sausage into 4 even pieces and then cut each piece length-wise, but not all the way through.  We put the sausage into an 8-inch square baking dish.

 Nothing special at this point

After preparing the mashed potatoes according to the package, we added the creole mustard to it.  We then filled each sausage piece with the potato mixture.

 Good stuff!

Ready to go in the oven

After baking it in a 350 degree oven for 20 minutes, we removed the dish and sprinkled cheddar cheese over the potatoes.  We put it back in the oven for another 5 minutes, just long enough for the cheese to melt.

 Looks good!

We had ours with salad and it was really good!  We often have sausage with mashed potatoes but the creole mustard and cheese made it a little bit different.  I would have this again!

Now we are just relaxing and enjoying the rest of our Sunday.  I hope you are having a great end to your weekend!

    1. I think they would like it and you could use a different kind of sausage if you wanted. We just only have chicken or turkey sausage because of me :)
