Ingredients You’ll Need

Smoked Sausage:

I used a 14 oz package of smoked sausage. I cut them into slices before adding them to the pot.

Green Bell Pepper and Yellow Onion:

Chop a yellow onion and green bell pepper. This will cook down with the sausage and just add in some flavor.

Frozen Shredded Hashbrowns:

I used a 26 ounce bag of frozen shredded hashbrowns.

Cheddar Cheese Soup and Chicken Broth:

This was just my base to cook the hashbrowns down in. They both added in more flavor, and I didn’t have to worry about it curdling or cooking too long.

Seasonings:

I used my usual…salt, pepper, garlic and onion powders, paprika and sugar.

Cheddar Cheese:

After everything is fulling cooked down, then add in your cheese. It’ll melt immediately.

Heavy Cream and Sour Cream:

Again, once everything is cooked down, add in some sour cream and heavy cream. This puts these potatoes over the top and so fluffy and rich.

Green Onions:

I garnished these potatoes with green onions. They complement them so well, but this is optional!
