Savory Sausage Spinach Casserole

 

Personally, I like to have options and that’s probably why I love this yummy Savory Sausage Spinach Casserole so much. Because it is so versatile, it can literally be served for any meal. For example, one evening last week I prepared it as part of our dinner. The next morning my husband asked if he could have the leftovers for his breakfast. “Sure hon! Anything for you!” See what I mean?

The first step is to prepare the seasoned dressing according to the packaging directions. While the dressing rested, I cook the seasoned ground sausage. When the meat is almost finished cooking, I added chopped celery, green onions, minced garlic and fresh mushrooms.

I lightly sprayed a 9″ x 13″ baking dish with cooking spray. After I drained and discarded the grease from the sausage mixture, I placed it into my baking dish and added chopped fresh spinach (this is a sneaky way to get your kids to eat their spinach!)

The final touch was adding a layer of shredded Monterey Jack cheese, then drizzling a mixture of eggs and cream, then topping with Parmesan cheese. I placed the casserole into a preheated 400 degrees F oven for about 30 minutes. The final step was to remove the casserole from the oven, add a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese and bake for another 5 minutes.
