Chicken Mushroom Sausage Casserole, very low-carb!
I always want to thump people on the nose for suggesting something like "1 tablespoon onion, chopped"
It makes me go, WHYYYYYYYYYY?
And I know right from the start that at least half an onion is going in, and maybe a clove or two of garlic for good measure. LOL
But I do think this one is worth a shot, heavily modified for my personal needs less cheese/add eggs (due to salt restriction) and preferences... MORE onion garlic, probably a good dose of red pepper flakes, and some herbs (that helps replace the salt).
A recipe is always a general idea in my hands I suppose...
yes, my thought exactly! MORE ONION (like more cowbel!) skip cr cheese, use egg , some cayenne, some mrs dash to replace salt, skip celery, use water chestnuts for the chew. and garlic for sure, black pepper. sounds doable!
I made this tonight. I used fresh cauliflower that I cooked, added lots more onion and some peppers as well. Other than that, did it exactly like the recipe. It was incredibly greasy and I rinsed the sausage after cooking.
The flavor was OK, but the fat was overwhelming. And I am one of those who usually love MORE fat. Not this time. LOL.
I've been craving a warm hearty casserole for a while, and stumbled upon this one being shared on the web.
I don't normally share recipes, but man, this sounds like something I can eat every night!
There's about two pounds of vegetables, and two pounds of meat packed into it!
Only draw back is that it has cheese, but I've never been dairy sensitive myself.
Perhaps someone knows of a good dairy-free alternative for other Primal forum users?
MUSHROOM CHICKEN AND SAUSAGE CASSEROLE
3-4 cups diced cooked chicken
1 pound pork sausage
1 stalk celery, chopped fine
1 tablespoon onion, chopped
1/2 pound mushrooms, sliced
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
16 ounce bag frozen cauliflower, cooked well and drained
8 ounces cheddar cheese, shredded
1/2 teaspoon pepper
Brown the sausage with the celery, onion and mushrooms. Stir the softened cream cheese into the sausage mixture until well blended. Coarsely chop the cooked cauliflower. Mix all of the ingredients and spread in a greased 9x13" baking dish. If desired, dust the top with paprika. Bake, covered with foil, at 350º for about 30 minutes. Uncover and bake until hot and bubbly and the top is lightly browned, about 10-15 minutes.

I made this for a potluck today and it was devoured! Everyone LOVED it! The only things I changed was I left out the onions and instead put about 2 tsps of garlic powder and I mixed about 2 tsps of pakprika into the mix and left out the cheddar until the last 15 min and melted it on top. YUM YUM YUM!!!!!!
I just made this for dinner and it was really delicious and hearty and so great as a winter meal with a salad. Everyone (primal and non) loved it. I added extra onion and did also remove sausage drippings. Thanks so much, it's always great to add another winner to the repertoire!

Okay, it was too good to pass up. It's in the oven as I write! Yummmmm! Thank you. After dinner update...really good. I asked Hubby if I should add it to the recipe box and he said, "yeah, I'd eat that anytime!" I also added more onion.
