Broccoli Sausage Bake

This is one of those dishes you take to a potluck and may get passed by a couple of times until that first brave soul "tries" it and starts raving about how good it is! It's not much to look at but, sure does pack a lot of flavor!!

I entered this dish into a local newspaper holiday competition many years ago and got an honorable mention!! :)

Serves:

6-8

Prep:

20 Min

Cook:

40 Min

Ingredients

1 lb
bulk pork sausage, browned and drained
1/2
chopped red bell pepper or equal amount of pimento may be used
16 oz
frozen chopped broccoli, thawed and drained
1 small
can water chestnuts, drained and chopped
1 1/2 c
bread crumbs, fresh
2
eggs, beaten

TOPPING

1/2 c
mayonnaise
1/2 c
sour cream
2 Tbsp
yellow mustard

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Brown sausage and cook chopped red pepper together, drain. While browning sausage and peppers, place frozen broccoli in colander to let thaw and drain.. i sometimes run a little cool water over it to speed the thaw process. Drain and coarsely chop water chestnuts.
2
In large bowl.. mix sausage, peppers, broccoli, water chestnuts, bread crumbs and eggs. Turn into well oiled 8x8 baking dish. Bake at 350 for about 30-40 minutes.. or until golden brown on top.
3
Mix together mayo, sour cream and mustard. "Frost" the sausage-broccoli bake and place back into oven for about 10 more minutes to warm topping.
4
I have used parsley flakes or dried onion rings to "dress up" the topping. But, this step is entirely optional.
5
The "heat" in the sausage really spices up this dish. I personally like to use hot sausage but, mild is still pretty awesome!!
