    Cool Chicken Mushroom Sausage Casserole, very low-carb!

    Primal Fuel
    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 - Linda's Low Carb Menus & Recipes



    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
    Salt
    1/2 teaspoon pepper
    Paprika, optional

    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 350 for about 30 minutes. Uncover and bake until hot and bubbly and the top is lightly browned, about 10-15 minutes.

    Never tried sausage with chicken (but it does sound like something I'd try -- at least once)

    I've been having a hard time finding a good way to bind casseroles without dairy and cheese (my wife's belly doesn't do to well with it). Everything I've tried has ended up either too loose and wet or bone dry.

    Tasty, for sure, but definitly not what I was going for. I'm thinking I might try mashed veggies next.

    Chicken and pork products are classic and WONDERFUL!

    you had me til "cream cheese" and "cauliflower". I like the idea, tho. It looks really tasty but i really don't dig cream cheese so much. Think there would be a way to alter it? i'm no chef/mad genius in the kitchen.

    maybe there's some way to work ro-tel tomatoes into it?

    You really can't taste the cream cheese - it just melts into a yummy sauce

    Perhaps home-made mayonnaise with mushed vegetables, starch and coconut milk can be used to work the 'binding' agent in a dairy free version.

    I am hoping to try this tonight. Can anyone advise what pork sausage is? Is it actual pork sausages or is it what we buy in Australia labelled pork mince (ground pork)?
