Making a Working Man’s Casserole

I don’t have anything too important to say this week so I decided to post the recipe to one of my favorite dishes instead. Who doesn’t like a good meal right?

This dish is very basic and I am sure it has been made in your house from time to time. I call it the working man’s casserole because it is quick to put together, easy to clean up, and it is a very hearty meal.

To start, chop up 2 bell peppers, 2 apples, 2-3 large sweet potatoes into cubes, and slice 4 links of sausage. I really like a flavored chicken sausage, but any smoked sausage would work.


After it is all chopped up move it to a pyrex or other baking dish. The trick here is covering the dish with aluminum foil so cleanup is easier.


After all the ingredients are in the dish, stir it up a bit to ensure they are all mixed together. Then I put about a 1-2 tsp. of salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes (for a little kick) on top. I also include a clove or two of garlic. I love garlic so I always add a little more. To top it off, I drizzle a little over 1 tbsp. of olive oil on top.


Then I put the dish in the oven at 425 degrees for 45 mins. – hour. I stir it up intermittingly while it cooks to ensure all of the potatoes cook. Like, I said – super easy! This is nothing special, but Gillian and I love it. After about an hour, it will come out looking like this!


If you do end up cooking this or something like this, my only requirement is that you sit down and enjoy it with your family! Meals at the table are the best meals.
