I wish I had come across this recipe a long time ago!

Take a look at what my friend Erin from the Making Memories With Your Kids food blog had to say about this magnificent recipe:

This another recipe that I took to the beach for our family vacation. I made it before we left so I could just put it in the oven for dinner and wouldn’t have to do any prep work. It was a perfect recipe for that! And it was goooood! Cheesy, potatoes and the smoked sausage added a great taste to it. I could seriously eat a dish like this everyday. Serious comfort food!
