Sausage Spinach Bake Recipe

This delicious recipe using a packaged stuffing mix was given to me some years ago by a friend. A salad and bread of your choice is all you’ll need for a filling lunch or dinner. It’s so versatile, you can even serve it at brunch. –Kathleen Grant, Swan Lake, Montana

"This was quite delicious! To make the stuffing I needed to use chicken broth but only had vegetable on hand. Worked out fine! As always, thawing and squeezing the spinach dry was pretty annoying and tedious. I also did find the recipe to be too salty for my taste. My husband loved it of course. Not sure how I can cut out some of the salt, but maybe I'll try turkey sausage next time. Overall a great meal, one I will make again, with an alteration or two."

"Delicious and good for any meal. I alter mine a bit by adding a full pound of sausage and extra spinach, half and half and eggs. Always turns out well and never any leftovers. Perfect dish for any potluck."

"Used kale from the garden (blanched and chopped) and cut the 1/2 and 1/2 with 1% milk (50/50), used turkey sausage, and it was still wonderful! Taking it to a ladies church potluck this morning."

"Fabulous! I've had this in my "to try" file for YEARS and I wish I had made it sooner!! We had it for dinner with some cut up fruit on the side. Perfect and comforting on a snowy night! This would be wonderful for a brunch item."

"Our family loves this one! We have used it either as a side or as a main course. Good way to incorporate spinach into the diet of a family who refuses to eat their vegetables. Try it!"

"The first time I made this I followed the recipe, it was delicious and my whole family loved it. We decided however to use the full pound of sausage to make it a heartier meal for dinner. I have made it many times even for an avowed spinnach hater who ended up eating two helpings"

"This is great! Family loved at breakfast @ parents after church! Can add a pound of sausage (they like their meat) & 3 extra eggs to make all the night before. Put in oven while preheating to take the chill off, before baking as usually. Thank you so much"

"I got this from a friend years ago also and we have made it for special occasions such as Christmas morning ever since. It tastes great. I usually put everything together the night before and add the eggs and cream in the morning just before putting it in the oven. It's always a hit."
