My Take On Sausage Green Bean Potato Casserole
This sausage green bean potato casserole is the thing to make when you want to keep it simple but still deliver the flavor. Seriously, from the roasted potatoes to the sauteed veggies and sausage, this dish packs a ton of deliciousness bite after bite.
So, the fact that it's so quick and easy to make is just a bonus!
The simplicity makes it a great addition to any holiday meal like Thanksgiving, Christmas, or even just a busy weeknight dinner. It's as versatile as my vegetable casserole, another one of my favorite vegetable casserole recipes, along with this green bean casserole.
Now, this casserole is great to serve all on its own, but I think it's even better served with some tasty side dishes. A few of my favorite things to serve next to it are these stuffed mushrooms, this sweet potato cornbread, and these honey glazed carrots. Having said that, though, this potato casserole can really be served alongside anything that you want!
- Kielbasa sausage- you can also use Italian sausage, hot sausage, chicken sausage, or smoked sausage.
- Small potatoes- I used creamer potatoes, but you can use russet potatoes, baby potatoes, or baby red potatoes
- Green beans -I used fresh green beans, trimmed and cut.
- Red onion -quartered.
- Minced garlic cloves
- All seasoning and onion powder- for the flavor.
- Chicken stock- chicken broth works too.
- Olive oil- any oil works, but I prefer olive oil.
- Salt and pepper
- Red pepper flakes- optional to add a little spice.
Also, just so you know, you can use a lot of these same ingredients to make this sausage and lentil soup. So, if you've got sausage left over after you make this casserole, you might want to give that a try too!
Oh, and if you have extra potatoes, you can use them to make this ham and potato casserole! It's really great for breakfast or dinner, and it's just delicious.
How To Make Sausage Green Bean Potato Casserole
1. Cook the sausage. First things first, you'll want to preheat the oven to 350°F (180ºC). Next, slice the sausages, if you haven't done so already, and them into a non-stick skillet coated with oil - or cooking spray - and cook over medium-high heat. Saute the sausages for a few minutes on each side until they're fully cooked, then set them aside for later.
2. Prepare the casserole. Once the sausages are cooked, you can prepare the rest of this casserole. So, to do this, take out a large mixing bowl, and add the sliced potatoes, veggies, garlic, seasoning, onion powder, broth, olive oil, salt, and pepper. By the way, if you want to add some heat to this dish, you can sprinkle in some red pepper flakes too. Anyway, now you can give all of these ingredients a good mix until they're thoroughly combined.
3. Bake the casserole. So, now that all of the components are prepared add the veggie and potato mixture to the prepared baking dish, and then add the cooked sausage slices on top of those. Bake the casserole for about 35 minutes or until vegetables and potatoes are fork tender. Finally, serve your casserole warm with whatever main and side dishes that you want for a complete meal, and enjoy!
How I Recommend Storing Sausage Green Bean Potato Casserole
This recipe for sausage green bean potato casserole will make 4 side dish-sized servings or 2 main course servings. Also, if you want to serve it as a meal or know that you'll need more, you can easily double or triple the ingredients!
With that said, don't worry about having leftovers because they store really well. You can store any leftovers in an airtight container. Stored this way, it'll last in the fridge for about 3-4 days.
How I Reheat This Casserole
I like to put everything back in a casserole dish and warm it up in the oven at 350°F for about 10 minutes to 15 minutes. Alternatively, you can put everything in a skillet over medium heat and saute for a few minutes. Just constantly move everything around the pan until it reaches your desired temperature.
