GOURMET POTATOES WITH SAUSAGE

This recipe is from an old Midwestern Church Cookbook.

6 medium potatoes
1/4 cup butter + 2 tbsp
1 1/2 cup sour cream
1 tsp salt
1 tsp paprika
2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
1/4 cup finely chopped green onion, including tops
1/4 tsp pepper
1 lb smoked sausage

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and butter a 2-quart casserole dish.

Place the potatoes, unpeeled, in a large saucepan; cover with water and cook until fork tender. Drain water and allow potatoes to cool. Peel the potatoes and shred coarsely. Over low heat, in another saucepan, combine the cheese and the 1/4 cup butter and stir until almost melted. Remove from the heat and blend in the sour cream, onion, salt and pepper. Fold in the potatoes. Turn the mixture into the casserole dish. Dot the potato mixture with the 2 tablespoons of butter and sprinkle with the paprika.

Slice the sausage into about 1/2-inch pieces and fry to remove the grease and drain on paper towels. Place over the top of the casserole. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Leave casserole uncovered.
