Cheesy Sausage, Green Bean and Potato Bake

Laaaawd have mercy.

Because this is absolute heaven and I know it’s so going to be your jam. I just know it! Know it.

Hi, it’s *almost* a one-pan bake. Basically is. Completely weeknight friendly, has EVERYTHING you want in it, and is blanketed with Roth’s creamy dreamy Original Gouda cheese whaaaaat.

Remember this Cheesy Chicken and Veggie Bake thingy? It’s like that! But totally different. I already can’t wait for you.

Peep that. Super easy stuff. And you know what – I went with those little peewee potatoes because the word peewee. But get what you want! IF you buy bigger potatoes, just remember to cut them down to peewee bites because the word peewee.

The only real prep step is to sear the sausage. Slice and sear. In a pan. Just get ’em charred and plump. OH HEY, let’s start a band called Charred and Plump and get tomatoes thrown at our heads.

In a small bowl you’ll whisk together a few Tbs. of extra-virgin olive oil with lemon juice and salt. That’s your dressing! Which once baked under all that gouda cheese and succulent sausage and veggies and peewee pots, is so completely beyond ridiculous good.

Cut the beans up so they’re manageable in your mouth. Layer the potatoes, beans and onions all up in a baking dish (this is a 9×13!) and evenly pour that lemon dressing on top. Look at you ruling the whole world right now.

But wait, it gets so crazy.

NOW, nestle your seared andouille sausage here and there, all in the veggies, just however you want. Then grate Roth’s Gouda cheese and evenly sprinkle it over the top of the dish. You’re probably like, “gouda and andouille, huh?”

YES.

YES GOUDA AND ANDOUILLE OBVIOUSLY YES DO NOT ARGUE WITH ME ON THIS.

OF COURSE YES.

I can relax.

Are you seeing that? You may punch it if you want. The trick is to first cover the dish with foil for the first 30 minutes, so that the potatoes have a chance in life to steam and get tender. THEN, the foil comes off, and the cheese keeps melting and everything has another chance in life to crisp up, brown up, bubble up, char up, level up, all the up.

Listen to me when I tell you this – the flavors are STELLAR, the textures are stupid satisfying and the whole dang thing is crazy simple to pull together.

You have no excuses. I expect to see this in your Stories in approximateeeeeeeeeeeely 20 seconds.

Ingredients

  • 1 (13 oz) package andouille sausage, sliced into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 12 oz green beans, cut into 2-inch pieces
  • 24 oz baby golden potatoes, cut in half (or quartered, depending on the size)
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced red onion
  • 4 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 (6 oz) package Roth’s Original Gouda Cheese, grated
  • Coarse salt
  • Parmesan cheese for garnish

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400.
  2. Sear the sliced sausage in a pan until charred on both sides, about three minutes.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, juice from half the lemon and a good pinch of salt.
  4. In a 9x13 baking dish, nestle the potatoes, green beans and red onion. Pour the dressing over the veggies and potatoes, then arrange the sausage on top, pushing a few down in the mix here and there. Sprinkle the cheese on top, cover and bake for 30 minutes. Remove the foil and bake another 30 minutes, keeping an eye on the cheese as it will start to brown and bubble.
  5. Serve with the extra lemon wedges and parmesan cheese, if desired! (You should desire.)
  6. Serves 4-6!

That gouda blanket is going to gorgeously destroy you forever.

(This post is totally in partnership with my lover, Roth Cheese. But all ramblings and gouda snarfings are my own. We coo?)

    You had me at gouda and potatoes. We don't use andouille sausage in my house, but Easter is coming and we always have leftover kielbasa from the holiday. This casserole bake is an awesome way to use up extra kielbasa!

    This recipe sounds fabulous! Do you think I could use frozen green beans? I'm thinking probably not, but I thought I'd ask :) Thanks for the recipe!!

      You know, I think frozen would be great! You might even get that better green color, coming from (thawed) frozen. Report back and let me know how it turns out! :)

    Thanks for getting back to me so quickly!! I really appreciate it, as quite a few other Blogger's either take their time, or don't respond at all! I'm glad you mentioned to use (thawed) beans, as I probably would have just used them frozen :) I can't wait to fix this, and will let you know how it turned out. Take care & thanks again!!

    Don’t hate but totally not a Gouda lover..... any suggestions on a sub? Thanks!

      Could never hate! I think a good melting cheddar would be good, or even classic mozzarella! HAVARTI would be amazing, too. Roth has a fabulous havarti definitely worth trying!

    Was already thinking about making my own (less yummy) version of this tonight and that is when I saw your Instagram post!! Made this using what I had on hand which was chicken sausage, frozen (thawed) green beans, red potatoes, and mozzarella! Thank you for the inspiration and I will report back how amazing it is!

      Ahhhh can't wait to hear how it turned out!

        This was so good!! The frozen green beans worked really well! Can’t wait to try your version. Also, you were right. We definitely should desire the Parmesan!
