"This is an extremely easy recipe that can be baked in a conventional oven or in a slow cooker. It combines potatoes with kielbasa or sausage baked in a creamy mushroom sauce." — CHRIS SHELLENBARGER

After reading the other reviews, I knew that this was a versatile recipe. I wasn't sure I had the right soups, but I knew I could come close. I used french onion soup instead of the vegetable beef soup and I added chopped fresh broccoli. My husband told me to make this again soon. I like the fact that I can throw this together with what I might have on hand, and have a good comfort food meal. French bread and salad were all I added to round out our dinner!! Thanks!
I made this in the slow cooker and, based on other reviewers' suggestions, added chopped onion, a drained can of corn, and a 1 lb. bag of baby carrots on top of the sausage, in that order. I also mixed the mushroom and vegetable beef soups together in a small bowl before adding them on top. It did taste good when it was done, but a little on the dry, thick side. I'm thinking maybe something like a cup of beef broth might have helped sauce it up a bit. The French onion soup, that other reviewers suggested, in place of the veggie soup might have done the trick, too, because it's a more liquidy soup to begin with. I also think it could have used some spices to jazz it up, maybe some black pepper or garlic or onion powder. If you make this in a slow cooker, I would recommend keeping the cooking time closer to the low end (6 hours) rather than the high end (8 hours). I went right down the middle with 7 hours, and if I would have cooked it that extra hour, it would have ended up way too dry.
YUMMY!! My family went crazy over this recipe! I made some adjustments based on other suggestions. 7 sliced peeled potatoes, 2 packages turkey smoked sausage, 1 (40% larger than normal sized) cream of mushroom soup,1 can condensed french onion soup, large onion chopped, lots of garlic powder. Put it in the crockpot til well cooked! Will be on the regular rotation...
Very easy to put together, especially with those pre-cubed potatoes you can get in the produce section now. Doing this in a slow cooker, it probably needs stirred at least once midway through cooking time as the potatoes on the bottom were a little mushy and the ones on the top were less cooked. But very nice blend of flavors -- would probably like better with a little more sauce as well. Will have to try the oven method next time too.
Quick and easy recipe. My kids love it. I've made this several times with the beef soup. One night I did not have beef soup on hand so I tried Campbell's Southwestern chicken soup...BETTER YET! Adds wonderful flavor. I also use more sausage than called for (2 #) and add fresh sliced mushrooms. Top with shredded cheddar cheese, perfect!
Absolutely delicious! I added some carrots and used sweet italian sausage. My family loved it!
I just want to add... It's been a year since I first made this and it has become a regular meal in my house. We have it at leat once a month. We all love it and it comes out perfect everytime. Very eay prep. A long cooking time, but hey, it gives me time to do other things since it is basically set it and forget it.
You really can't mess this up and it is soooo tasty. Makes it's own gravy too.
The only thing I might suggest since I do it in the oven id to take the foil of for the last 15 or 20 minutes to let the top brown.
It is a little too much food for my small family but I still make the full recipe, in fact I might even increase it a bit, but it freezes well, so I don't mind.
i got this recipe when i was looking for crock pot recipes. The vegetable soup kind of threw me at first, but since it seemed a cheap meal to make i decided to give it a try. My children just loved it. my 2 year old is very picky about what she eats, but she just loved it. the only change i made was to add a can of whole kernal corn because my husband loves corn. thanks for the great recipe!!!
My boyfriend and I loved this recipe. It was very easy to make, although I might recommend spraying the baking dish with cooking spray before baking.
