Sausage Potato Boats are an easy weeknight dinner made with juicy sausages topped with buttery mashed potatoes and lots of cheese! Simple & flavorful meal!Sausage Potato Boats recipe is sponsored by Johnsonville Sausage. All opinions are 100% mine. This is one of the easiest weeknight meals ever! I first began making these over 20 years ago. It’s a great way to use up leftover mashed potatoes. The cheesy potatoes go so well with flavorful sausages- try it and you’ll see!

I cooked the sausages using the new Johnsonville Sizzling Sausage Grill. It’s an indoor grill made specifically for cooking sausages and you won’t believe how easy it is to use! There’s a “quick-start” guide included and you don’t preheat the grill, so we were literally cooking sausages within minutes of taking the grill out of the box! You can cook 1 to 5 sausages in under 15 minutes in the enclosed electric grill. (Enclosed means less clean-up!) I love that there’s an internal temperature probe so that it stops cooking them at just the right temp. Our sausages were perfectly browned and so juicy! Clean-up was a breeze and I was so impressed with how easy it all was.
