Potato Sausage Pie

*This is an American recipe, and we don't have American sausage here in Australia, however I used Australian style sausages chopped up and it was delicious all the same!*

3 teaspoons oil
3 cups shredded raw potatoes
1 cup shredded cheese
3/4 cup sausage
1/4 cup chopped onion
1 cup milk
2 eggs (I used 5 eggs to make it go further)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper

Preheat oven to 210ºC (425ºF).
Combine oil and potatoes.  Press into pie pan.  Bake for 15 minutes or until crust begins to brown.  Remove from oven and layer potatoes with cheese, sausage, and onion.
Combine milk, eggs, salt and pepper and pour over layered ingredients.
Bake 30 minutes or until lightly browned.
Cool for 5 minutes before cutting.

Did you cut the raw sausage up into pieces or leave it whole? Sounds really nice, the potato base would come out very crunchy?

yeah, I did cut up the sausage. I also decided to pre-cook the sausages a little, but I think it would cook just fine if you put them in raw. I would assume the recipe was talking about raw sausage, but I wanted to speed the process up a bit because of time constraints!
The base wasn't crunchy, but if you cooked it a little longer it would probably get crunchy if that was your preference :)

Okay, you had me at sausage! Sounds delicious!

LOL Tracey! I love sausage too, only ours are very different here - I think our sausages are similar to English links, which I believe you can get in some places in the States? If you try this recipe with your American sausages (like it's supposed to have!), can you let me know how it turns out, please?? :)
