Tonight I wasn’t eating dinner with the family. So, while searching recipes for pie crusts (since I had bought some on sale and needed to use them) I ran across Cheesy Sausage Pie. Since, I also had sausage I needed to use and I don’t like sausage, I decided to try it. Well, it ended up becoming a family favorite. The kids gobbled it up and my husband went back for thirds! I had a bite, so I could see if I could eat it, and I ended up thinking it was REALLY good. It immediately became a family favorite.
I made some changes to my recipe compared to the Pillsbury site, just due to family preferences and what I had on hand. But here’s the recipe.
1 lb ground sausage
dried minced onion
1 Tbsp minced garlic
1/2 (15 oz) can tomato sauce (traditional spaghetti sauce)
1 can of diced Italian tomatoes, drained
1 cup corn
1 refrigerated pie crust
Brown sausage with minced onion and minced garlic and drain off fat.
On stove, in the skillet add to the meat the tomato sauce, tomatoes, and corn.
Let it boil some “water” out.
Place prepared pie crust in 9in pie plate and then put the meat mixture in pie plate.
Bake at 350 for 35 minutes
Sprinkle cheese on top and bake for another 12 minutes.
Let stand before serving.
For someone who doesn’t like sausage… It was surprisingly yummy!
