A Down-Home, Comfort-Food Retro Casserole

Even If You Haven’t Had Sausage In Years, You Might Want To Try This Casserole

I have never been a big fan of what is called “breakfast” sausage – you know, that ground up mystery meat served up in patty form in diners around the country. I do, however, like sausage links and even, upon occasion, bulk sausage. Truth be told, there is probably not one whit of difference between any of these, other than the form in which they are created and served.

When I saw Lisa’s interesting sausage casserole recipe, I was first drawn to it as a potential breakfast casserole to serve a hungry crowd on a Sunday morning. Then I started seeing it as a potential dinner offering. After all, I often enjoy eating breakfast foods for my dinner, especially when I am not in the mood to cook anything elaborate.

The fact that this dish is, ultimately, cooked in a slow cooker also had a certain appeal. I could set it up the night before and wake up to breakfast. Now I felt I was really getting somewhere with this recipe and seeing places where it would fit into my own lifestyle. You, of course, will have to try it for yourself and evaluate it, the same way that I did.


Quick Tip:  Make sure that your sausage is thoroughly browned, as even a hint of raw pork can make you quite ill.

    There is no cooking time shown on this casserole recipe. I tracked it down and it is 3 1/2 to 4 hours covered.
