There's nothing I like better than a recipe I can mix in one bowl, pour into my dutch oven and bake. These Cheesy Potatoes with Smoked Sausage come to us courtesy of Hillshire Farms. In my 12 inch dutch oven they baked for a total of 45 minutes with 12 coals in a ring around the bottom of the oven with 28 briquettes spaced evenly on the lid. If you can't find the refrigerated hash browns, use the frozen variety, just thaw before baking. As a side dish or main course these cheesy, smoky, creamy potatoes are as good to eat as they are easy to prepare.
