Bubbles an Squeaks

This is completely different than the English version of Bubbles and Squeaks. My older brother lived in Bulgaria for two years and he mentioned this recipe when he got home. He used a local sausage, a local cheese, and cabbage. I left out the cheese cause I didn't think it needed it and the cabbage cause HusbandMan isn't a fan.

1 kielbasa
4 large potatoes
4 Tbsp flour
3 Tbsp butter
4 c. dairy
(Heavy cream, half-an-half, milk, whatever combination you have on hand)
Salt and pepper to taste

Slice the kielbasa and cook over medium high heat until starting to brown.

While that is cooking peel the potatoes. Cut the peeled potatoes into quarters lenght-wise and then cut into 1/8th inch pieces.

When the kielbasa is cooked, add the potatoes to the pan and cook until the potatoes are brown.

Pour the bechamel sauce over the potatoes and kielbasa and bake at 350 for 30 - 45 minutes until potatoes are very tender

For the Sauce
Melt the butter, add the flour and stir to avoid lumps. Cook for a minute or two and stir in the cream. Cook, stirring until thickened. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
