by Gary Gee
2 Tablespoons butter
4 cups red potatoes (about 6 medium), sliced 1/4-inch thick
1/2 pound smoked sausage (such as Teet’s Pure Pork Sausage), thinly sliced
8 ounces Gruyere cheese, shredded
1 1/2 cups whole milk
1 cup whipping cream
1 cup Slap Ya Mama Cajun Etouffee Sauce
1 Tablespoon Creole mustard
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 clove garlic, chopped

1/2 teaspoon Slap Ya Mama White Pepper Blend Cajun Seasoning, plus more for garnish
1 pinch salt
1 pinch freshly ground black pepper
4 ounces Parmesan cheese, shredded
Snipped chives, for garnish (optional)
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Grease 8 x 11 casserole dish with butter. Layer potatoes, sausage, and Gruyere in casserole dish, ending with cheese.
Place the milk and cream in a saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Add Slap Ya Mama Cajun Etouffee Sauce, mustard, Worcestershire, garlic, thyme, Slap Ya Mama White Pepper Blend Cajun Seasoning, salt and
pepper. Whisk until thoroughly combined and simmering, but not boiling. Pour over potato mixture in casserole. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese, and dash with additional Slap Ya Mama White Pepper Seasoning.
Cover casserole tightly with foil and bake for one hour. Uncover and bake an additional 45 minutes, or until potatoes are cooked through, top is browned, and sauce is bubbly. Remove from oven and let rest for 30 minutes. Garnish with chives, if desired. Cut into wedges or use a big spoon to serve.
