My hubby and kids love it when I fix this. I found this recipe in the cookbook Fast Fixes With Mixes.
1 lb fully cooked kielbasa or polish sausage, halved and sliced 1/2 inch thick
2 Tbsp vegetable oil
1 pkg (5 1/4 oz) au gratin potatoes
2 1/2 cups water
1 pkg (8 oz) frozen California blend vegetables
1-2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
~ In a skillet, cook sausage in oil until lightly browned; drain.
~ Add potatoes with contents of sauce mix and water. Cover and cook over medium heat for 18-20 minutes or until the potatoes are almost tender, stirring occasionally.
~ Add veggies; cover and cook for 8-10 minutes or until potatoes and veggies are tender.
~Sprinkle with cheese.
~ Remove from heat; cover and let stand for 2 minutes or until the cheese is melted.
Yield: 4 servings.
The milk and butter listed on the potato package are NOT used in this recipe.
