Sausage Macaroni and Cheese Skillet - The Southern Lady Cooks

This Sausage Macaroni and Cheese Skillet recipe is an easy meal to throw together on a busy day and it’s good, too! This dish is loaded in flavor and reheats well! It will keep in the fridge for several days. Just add a little milk, stir and reheat either in the microwave or on the stove. We love this meal with my Sour Cream Cornbread Muffins.

Sausage Macaroni and Cheese Skillet Ingredients Needed:

Smoked or polish sausage


Green Bell pepper

Green onion (can use regular onion)

Garlic, chopped

Chicken broth


Black pepper

Salt, more or less

Frozen peas (could use fresh or canned)

Shredded cheddar cheese


The combination of the milk and chicken broth really gives this dish a creamy great flavor. We love that you don’t have to precook the pasta! That always saves time in the kitchen and this dish comes out tasting great. One thing I do a little differently is buy the 8 ounce block of cheddar and shred it myself. I really do feel that adds a different texture to the cheese.
