A take-off from this recipe.
I altered it, in classic "I'm cooking" sense . . . .
Here's what I did . . . .
I washed, peeled & thinly sliced about 3 pounds of potatoes. Then, in the biggest skillet I have, I quick boiled them until they were fork tender. Then I strained them and set them aside.
In the same skillet, I browned 1 pound of smoked chicken sausage. (Though it's very true that you could use ANY meat for this . . . . ham would be delish!)
Also, into the skillet with the browned meat, add and mix well . . . .
4 tablespoons of butter
4 tablespoons of flour
2 cups of milk
a pinch of salt & a dash of pepper
1/2 pound of cubed Velveeta
Mix this all together until the cheesy is bubbly, melted and smooth, then add the boiled potatoes back in. Combine well and serve hot.
