3 hours 30 min
Serves 6–8 People
- 8 potatoes, diced
- 2 pkgs 10oz sausages, also diced
- 1 onion, diced
- 2 cans whole kernal corn
- 3 TBSP McCormicks smokehouse maple seasoning, (you can pick your own)
- vegetable oil
- shredded cheese, optional
- 1TBSP garlic salt
Lets Get Cooking
- First take out the pan you are going to use and spray it lightly with a nonstick spray to make clean up easier. Also heat up your oven to 450 degrees.
- I tend to use an old butter dish and lid for this next step but it's up to you how to do it. You dice up the potatoes and put them in the bowl. Next you add just enough vegetable oil to lightly coat the potatoes. Next I add the seasonings in. This is where an old butter dish comes in handy. I put the lid on and then shake it until the seasonings have completely coated the potatoes. (Depending on the size of the bowl you are using you might have to break it up over a couple of mixings before all the potatoes are coated.)
- Once all the potatoes are coated dump them into the pan and cover with foil. Bake for 2–2 1/2 hours until the potatoes are soft. Check every 15 minutes after the first hour of cooking.
- While the potatoes are cooking you can finish the rest of the prep work. Cut a whole onion, either diced or chunked. You can toss it into the bowl you just used to season the potatoes. Open two cans of corn and drain the juice. Add it to the bowl. Then dice up the sausage. I tend to cut them in slices and then cut the slices in half. I then add the cut sausage to the bowl as well. I add a dash of salt, a dash of the garlic salt and a dash of the smokehouse maple seasoning. As they will blend with the potatoes in the last step I only lightly season them. Then I mix it up and refrigerate until the potatoes are done.
- Once the potatoes are done, remove and throw away the foil. Then you mix the bowl of other ingredients with the potatoes and cook for another 20 minutes. Remove from heat and sprinkle shredded cheese over the top.
- Alternately you can boil the potatoes and then you don't have to bake them as long. Boiling them takes about 20 minutes, then you season and cook them in the oven for 15 before adding the bowl of other ingredients.
