Cheesy Potato Sausage Casserole – A delicious layering of potatoes, a creamy sauce, red peppers and fresh sausage. This easy casserole is perfect for breakfast or dinner and contains no canned or fake ingredients.
I present to you this delicious cheesy potato sausage casserole. As I present I ask, when you heard the word casserole: Is it complete dread or happiness?
For me, casseroles sometimes sound boring. Seriously. They sound like what granny would bring to the ‘All You Can Eat Casserole Supper’ at church. But guess what?
I’ve learned to love casseroles. And the simplicity of an all-in-one-dish sometimes falls far from my brain, especially as time goes by. And then comes the request from the hubster. “Can you please make some more casseroles?” I think he usually says please. Hmm…maybe he doesn’t. Either way I like to make me hubby happy. How about you?
Besides God there’s no one else I’d rather make pleased. And casseroles do it for my man. This one came about recently when looking for something a bit different that what I usually serve.
What I love about this dish:
- No canned ingredients (yay!)
- Fresh from scratch ingredients
- Serve for breakfast or dinner
- Veggies, potato and meat (all in one)
