Smoked Sausage Casserole

This smoked sausage casserole is one of my favorite comfort dishes. It has some of my favorite things in it – smoked sausage, hash browns, and peppers. And cheese. How could it not be good?

Smoked Sausage Casserole

You can omit the jalapenos if you want. Or add more.

I highly recommend that you shred or grate your own cheese at home. Don’t buy the pre-shredded or pre-grated stuff. It has stuff added to it to keep it from sticking together. That ‘stuff’ affects how the cheese melts. Shred it yourself and use the good stuff.

Also try my smoked sausage Alfredo. My baked angel hair with sausage is always a big hit too.
