A satifying, hearty casserole!
1. Place the potatoes in a large pot, cover with salted water (water should be two inches above potatoes) and boil until tender (about 20 minutes). Drain potatoes, cool and cut into 1/2 inch rounds. Keep the skin on. Set potatoes aside.
2. In a medium sized skillet over medium high heat, add vegetable oil. When hot, add the sliced onions and cook until tender and golden brown (about 10 minutes). Remove from heat and set aside.
3. Place the eggs in a large pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil over high heat, after it begins to boil, reduce heat to medium low and simmer for 10 minutes. Drain and put eggs into a bowl of ice water to cool. After eggs are cool, peel and slice into 1/2 inch rounds. If you have an egg slicer, use it … it’s so much easier. Set eggs aside.
4. Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease your 2 quart oblong baking dish with butter. Layer the bottom of the dish with 1/3 of the sliced potatoes, 1/3 of the cooked onions, 1/3 of the sliced eggs, and 1/3 of the cooked sliced sausage. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Spread 1/3 of the sour cream gently over everything. Repeat these layers two more times ending with sour cream and a sprinkle of the cheddar cheese.
5. Cover with tin foil and bake for 60 minutes. Then remove it from the oven, remove foil and let it sit for 10 minutes before serving.
Now, I am not a casserole kinda gal, but when confronted with a plethora of leftover turkey from Thanksgiving, I will bow to the gods of one-dish meals. I did some research from famous chefs and their versions of tetrazzini and got a good idea of where I needed to focus. Then I raided the refrigerator. My goal was to not have to purchase anything to make this meal, yet make it extremely tasty. This is the outcome.
I love couscous and could eat it in some variation nearly every day. Not everyone in my household feels this way (I won’t mention the “he” who shall be nameless). In an effort to make couscous a little bit “tastier” to some folks, I thought this quick and easy casserole might hit the spot. This would be a great side dish to any meal or if you are going meatless eat this all by itself!
Tacos … check! Chicken … check! Together in a casserole … check, check! Three of my favorite things all wrapped up into one sensational dish. And I do mean sensational. This is one easy and really tasty casserole that I will be making again and again at my house. I hope you love it as much as we do.
