Farmer John Smoked Sausage Switcheroo: Cheesy Scalloped Potatoes with Sausage and Peas #CookWithSausage

I was sent a few packages of Farmer John Cheese & Wine Flavor Smoked Sausage to share a recipe for guys who love meat and potatoes. Mr. loves sausages of all kinds cooked all ways so I used a favorite recipe with a few twists. Instead of making just scalloped potatoes as a side dish, I turned it into a sort of casserole all in one meal with a delicious cheesy wine sauce and threw in some peas for good measure. As I was browning the sausages for this recipe, they smelled incredible!!
Please note that these sausages are not gluten free, they do contain wheat. You could use a gluten free flour blend and a gluten free sausage instead if you'd still like to try your own version of this recipe. 

My family really liked this dish, Mr. loved the flavors of the sausage and the cheesy potatoes. I can see this recipe being a great hearty dinner for your hungry guy. I hope he likes it too!
