Also good as used as a spread for bread, frosting for muffins and on pancakes. 

I serve it most often with graham crackers, but it’s also good with pretzels or pretzel chips.

Makes a nice snack if you’re not worried about fat, calories or sugar. Sometimes I just have to be bad.

Sometimes you just need to get something on the table fast. Now and then, more than that I’m not willing to admit, I get distracted and realize at the last minute that I need to get dinner on quick. When those nights happen, I often make this recipe since I keep most of the ingredients on the shelf or in the freezer.

I don’t always have mushrooms around, but if I happen to have some I use them. You can also use canned mushrooms if you prefer.

Fast but hardy, this versatile dish hits the spot when you’re in a pinch.

Ingredients
  1. 2 Tablespoons butter or margarine
  2. 1 pound smoked sausage (or your favorite ring sausage variety), sliced
  3. 2 cloves garlic, minced
  4. 2/3 cup green onions, chopped (optional)
  5. 8 oz sliced fresh mushrooms (optional)
  6. 1 1/2 cups water
  7. 1 cup milk
  8. 1 box scalloped potatoes
  9. 1/2 cup salsa
  10. 12 oz bag frozen broccoli
Instructions
  1. Melt butter in skillet. Cook sausage, garlic, green onions (optional) and mushrooms (optional) over medium high heat until sausage browns.
  2. Add water and milk. Heat to boiling.
  3. Stir in potatoes and sauce mix from boxed scalloped potatoes. Add salsa and mix well.
  4. Cover and simmer for 15 minutes. Stir occasionally.
  5. Add frozen broccoli and cook 10 minutes or until potatoes and broccoli are tender.
  6. Remove from heat and let stand until sauce thickens.
Notes
  1. This dish is great for using up leftover veggies. Instead of broccoli or in addition to, use leftover zucchini, bell peppers, carrots, green beans or anything you think would taste good with sausage and cheese sauce.
  2. Add a cup of shredded cheddar with the salsa for a more "real" cheese taste.

I’m not sure where July went. I blinked and it was August already! So, it’s catch up time again. I’ll start with a recipe I promised my daughter I would post…

I started making my own taco seasoning when I would run out of the packets of seasoning, but I never found the exact right mixture to continue making my own until now. I started playing with a base recipe and found an ingredient mixture that everyone seemed to like better than the packets. It’s easy to modify to fit your likes, so give it a try and let me know how you changed it.

Fast, easy and worth it!
