Grease a large enamel casserole dish, then layer:

  • chopped onions
  • chopped or sliced potatoes
  • peas
  • corn
  • carrots
  • chopped green pepper (if you have it on hand)
  • sliced mushrooms
  • cubed Ukrainian sausage

Make sure to use Ukrainian sausage, so this casserole has its delicious, slightly smokey flavor. I've tried of meat but none work as well as the Ukrainian sausage.

Making Gravy for Hotsput

In a saucepan combine 2-3 cans of mushroom soup and water. Bring to a boil until smooth and slightly thickened. Add:

  • salt
  • pepper
  • garlic powder

Pour over vegetables in casserole dish. Cover and bake at 325-350 degrees until potatoes are just soft. Top with grated cheddar cheese and continue cooking uncovered until cheese is bubbly.

The flavor combination of Ukrainian sausage, cheese, and vegetables is unbeatable.

* Make sure that you use Ukrainian sausage. I've tried hotsput using other meat and it doesn't taste the same.

Ukrainian hotsput is a great one-dish dinner casserole. It's easy to make and is also a favorite at potlucks.
