"My sister passed along the recipe for this convenient casserole," says Mary Killion of Hermiston, Oregon. "I appreciate being able to freeze one pan for a hectic day. The generous portions are bound to feed a hungry family or an extra mouth or two that show up at your table."
This recipe has traveled to many parts of the country. That's because I've served it to guests from Washington to New Hampshire, and they always ask for the recipe before I leave! My grown children all have a copy, too-it never fails to get rave reviews.
My guests like this casserole even if they don't usually like all the ingredients in it! For instance, people who don't care for broccoli don't mind it in this dish. And I like the way it's so easy to make and serve when company comes. —Suzann Verdun, Lisle, Illinois
MY MOTHER'S FAMILY was of German descent and enjoyed sausages and frankfurters. This recipe was one of their favorites.
I don't know if Mother made up this recipe or if it was handed down to her, but it's scrumptious and can be made in portions small enough to satisfy two people.

This is one of the dishes Grandma served to our family during the holidays. Now, when the family gathers and I prepare this for my grandchildren, memories of those special times at Grandma's house fill my mind. I usually double this recipe, because the leftovers are fabulous when warmed in the microwave.
"We always have plenty of pork sausage around, so when I need a quick supper, I use this handy recipe," relates Virginia Krites of Cridersville, Ohio. "The colorful vegetables give this dish a perky look to match its flavor."
Pretty parsley pinwheel top this hearty casserole filled with a saucy mixture of broccoli, ham and onion. "It also can be made with asparagus instead of broccoli," suggests Sharon White of Morden, Manitoba. "With a green salad, it's a satisfying supper."
