    Default Yummy Potato Spinach Sausage Casserole

    Not exactly diet food, but good on a cold winter day.

    Potato Spinach Sausage Casserole

    1 1/2 tbsp unsalted butter, plus extra to grease the baking dish
    2 tsp. of olive oil
    8 oz fresh spinach, washed, dried, and stemmed
    1/2 lb of Italian sausage (I like hot Italian sausage but often leave it out 'cos hubby is a vegetarian), broken out of casing into small pieces
    1 large red onion (about 3/4 lb), peeled and sliced thin
    1 small garlic clove, minced
    1 1/2 pounds russet potatoes (about 3 medium-sized potatoes), peeled and cut into 1-inch chuncks
    1/4 cup heavy cream
    2 tbsp chicken or veggie broth
    1 tbsp cider vinegar
    dash of nutmeg
    3/8 teaspoon of salt
    1/4 teaspoon pepper
    1 cup of shredded Gruyere or Swiss cheese

    1 Preheat oven to 400F. Butter a 6x9 or 8x8 inch baking dish.

    2 Heat one of the teaspoons of olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat until shimmering. Add spinach and cook, stirring often, until wilted, about 3 minutes. Transfer spinach to strainer and drain. When cool, squeeze out liquid and roughly chop the spinach.

    3 Wipe skillet clean. Add sausage to skillet and cook over medium-high heat until browned, 5 to 6 minutes. Use slotted spoon to transfer sausage to bowl. Wipe skillet clean. Heat remaining oil in skillet and add onions, cooking until golden, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Scrape mixture into bowl with sausage.

    4 Meanwhile, place potatoes in a large pot and add enough water to cover by 1 inch. Bring potatoes to boil over high heat, then lower heat to a simmer. Cook until potatoes are tender, about 15 minutes. Drain potatoes, wipe pot dry, put potatoes back into the pot, and mash with butter, cream, broth, vinegar, nutmeg, salt and pepper. Stir in spinach and 1/2 cup of the cheese.

    5 Transfer potato-spinach mixture to prepared baking dish. Top with sausage-onion mixture and sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup of cheese. Bake until potatoes are very hot and cheese is golden and bubbly, 20 to 25 minutes. Cool for 10 minutes before serving.

    Just use cubes. They're sold just about everywhere. And if for some reason you can't get those either, use water with a bit of tomato sauce. Or even red wine and water. The point is to add a little flavour and liquid, and lots of ingredients can do that. Good luck!

    Oh thank you!



    I haven't tried a lot of recipes because of lack of broth, never realized you could use the cubes! Doyt!

    OH that sounds Yummy. I made the other day for the first time Chicken and Dumplings. I have to admit I did pretty good for my first time. So good when you have a cold or its cold and drizzly outside.
