Gooseberry Patch Cook Book Review & Give Away!

I was thrilled when Gooseberry Patch
contacted me to see if I would do another
Cook Book Review and Give Away.!
Everyone knows I LOVE
Gooseberry Patch Cook Books
so much I Collect them!
When they told me the name of the
cook book I was even more excited...
I was raised on Casseroles!
As soon as I received the book
I had the hardest time choosing 
which recipe to make. 
They all sound and looked 
mouth watering.

One of the things I love about the
cook book, is that they have a 
photo with EVERY recipe.
I dont know about Y'all,
but I know I eat with my eye's first!
It always helps when you have an
idea of what the finished dish
should look like.  ;)

I decided to make the recipe  
 for the Cheesy Sausage-Potato Casserole.

Cheesy Sausage-Potato Casserole
3-4 Potato's ~ thinly sliced
1 lb. Kielbasa Pork Sausage~ sliced
1 Med. White Onion~ diced
1/2 C. Butter~sliced
1 C. Sharp Cheddar Cheese~ Shredded

Preheat oven to 350
In a 2 quart or 9x13 pan start
layering potato's, onion,  and sausage.


Dot with butter and sprinkle
with the shredded cheese.
Bake uncovered for 1 1/2 hrs.
Or until potato's are tender.
** I did not have to bake mine for this
long.I would also recommend that you
DO cover the dish with foil for the
 first 40 minutes. Then remove foil and top 
with shredded cheese. 
This recipe was a bit dry for my taste,
so in the future I will add in more liquid.
Perhaps a 1/2 C.milk or cream and pepper.


The second recipe I made was the
Hearty Stuffed Pepper Casserole
(you can find this recipe on page 34)

This is a great way to serve
"traditional stuffed peppers" to a
family or large crowd.
In this recipe they have you quarter the 
peppers. Using only 2 peppers you
end up having 8 servings.!
( In my picture above I used a whole pepper
due to the fact that I  was taking this to a
single older person for dinner)

Hearty Stuffed Pepper Casserole
2 1/2 C. Herb flavored Stuffing Mix~divided
1 TBSP. Butter~ melted
1 lb. Ground Beef
1/2 C. Onion~ chopped
1 (14 1/2 oz.) Can Diced Tomato's
1 (8oz.) Can Corn~ drained
2 Large Green Peppers~ quartered
Salt/Pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 400
Mix together 1/4 C. stuffing mix and 
the butter- set aside.
Brown the ground beef and onion
together over med-heat, drain.
Stir in the tomato's, corn, salt/pepper.
Add in the remaining stuffing mix,
combine well. In a 2 Qt. baking dish or
a 9x13 pan arrange the quartered
peppers on the bottom of pan.
Spoon mixture into each pepper.
Cover and bake for 40 minutes.
Remove cover, sprinkle on the remaining
stuffing mix you set aside earlier.
Return to the oven to bake 
for additional 5 minutes, or until
the peppers are tender.
**I also made this recipe a 2nd time in the 
slow cooker. They turned out great!
If you want to cook this in a slow cooker
Following all directions above, add in 
1/2 C. water on the bottom of your slow cooker
before layering in the peppers.
 Cook on low for 4  hours.**

I love to make spagetti casserole. I fix this for a family member or friend who is recouping from surgery and unable to cook for their family. I buy a loaf of french bread and a packaged ceasar salad mix to take with the casserole and that makes a good full meal. Thanks for entering me in for the drawing! I love Gooseberry on Facenook too!

I like to fix spagetti casserole for family or friends who have had surgery or are ill and unable to cook for themselves and their family. On the way to their home, I stop at the store and get a loaf of french bread and a ceasar salad kit too. So quick and easy to do for providing them a full balanced meal. I love Gooseberry Patch on Facebook. Already friends with them. Thanks for putting me in the drawing.
