We return again with a recipe loved in Transylvania, but slightly updated, thus becoming the best cheesy potato casserole recipe, with sausage and hard-boiled eggs.

This type of food is one of my favourites because it is easy to cook and once I put the casserole in the oven, I don’t have to sit by the stove all the time. There are similar recipes on my blog like eggplant casserole or cabbage casserole, both are delicious.

Let’s See the Ingredients

The basic ingredient is potatoes, I chose about 1 kg of medium-sized white potatoes.
