Sausage Pie Recipe

Sausage Pie Recipe

When I was growing up, Mom made this tasty casserole often in summer for our family and guests. It's a great use of garden vegetables, and the sausage adds comforting flavor. I'm sure you'll enjoy it as much as we do. —Sally Holbrook, Pasadena, California

"I have made this dish quit a few times and we love it. I use a whole red pepper and no green pepper and I always use 1 lb of farmer type sausage either Italian or garlic. I precook it in the oven or BBQ and cut it up into small pieces. I really like that there is no pasta and no canned soup in this. A nice change from the usual casseroles. Fresh tomatoes are the best in it and they add plenty of moisture."

"I followed the recipe exactly, and I love all the ingredients individually, but something didn't jive well for me and this casserole. I was not a fan. Not sure just was not pleasant for my palate."

"We enjoyed this for dinner last night. I used five Italian sausage links and added a few cloves of fresh garlic and some chopped onion. Plenty of veggies in it for us - none of them came out of my garden, but they came outta somebody's garden LOL..."

"I am new at this - but after reading some of the reviews on this recipe and several others - I would never submit a recipe because I can't believe what Caty and unkind comments are made - everyone likes to read a recipe, then adjust it to their families liking - but Geese Louise - lets not tear each other apart doing it."

"I almost always change up recipes depending on what I have on hand... I used carrots, corn, canned tomatoes, spinach, peppers, & onions as my veggies. I used minute rice & I didn't bother with the bread crumb topping. Still an excellent result."

"I must be missing something. I've read the recipe and the reviews several times. No clue what maxi is talking about, midwifecat is right, not all that many veggies in this-during garden season I need to use a LOT of vegetables :) -

1/2 medium green pepper,
1/2 medium sweet red pepper,
4 to 5 medium tomatoes
1 10 ounces frozen corn,
2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
1 teaspoon dried basil - I look on this as a drop in the bucket veggie wise.
I went with fresh basil, added 2 onions, another tomato and 2 cups of fresh okra. I used 1/2 lb.ground sausage, which I crumbled and pre-cooked, then drained well
to cut the fat and calories."

"one bell pepper, a cup of frozen corn, and a couple of tomatoes is "good use of garden veggies?" That's just silly. Add an onion for flavor & some chopped zuchinni, and you could claim this is a garden casserole. Some oregano would add flavor too."
