Mashed Potato Casserole


-5 lb. bag of white potatoes(peeled and chopped)

-3- blocks of cream cheese

-2- stick of butter (or maybe just a little more:)

-1-pound of ground chuck hamburger meat

-1-pound package of hot sausage

-Worcestershire Sauce

-half of a grated white onion

-2 Tablespoons of flour

-whole milk

-shredded sharp cheddar

In a pot:

Boil potatoes in water with a stick of butter and a little salt until fork tender

Drain and use a hand potato masher and mash potatoes with cream cheese and butter and a little salt/pepper.....use two blocks of cream cheese in mashing and then pinch little pieces of cream cheese into mashed potatoes for a strong cream cheese flavor.

In a large skillet:

Brown hamburger meat and hot sausage in a large skillet with grated onion and salt/pepper(be generous and add a couple shots of Worcestershire) time to flavor the meat is now...while cooking:)

Once meat is cooked....add flour to cover meat to thicken and then add milk to make gravy. All while stirring and watching for desired thickness....keep on a high heat and never walk away from skillet(stirring the whole time) ....until you are finished and turn off burner:) Start with a cup of milk and then just keep adding to make desired thick Gravy. Not too much at a time so you don’t have runny gravy:)

In a 9x13 buttered baking dish:

Add mashed potatoes and then make holes all over them with a cup. Add the hamburger/sausage gravy in each of the holes. Top all of it with grated sharp cheddar cheese and bake at 375 until cheese is melted. Serve right out of the oven.
