Sausage Casserole

This is a delicious recipe that my mom gave me. The casserole is great for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or a snack. I make it occasionally, but for whatever reason it taste especially good after a holiday. We like to eat it with corn chips and Tabasco sauce.

I'm still trying to figure out how I'm going to make it on the boat. Our propane oven is inefficient and propane is a very important commodity to us.



  • 1 pound Jimmy Dean HOT Pork Sausage
  • 2 envelopes of Chicken Noodle Soup Mix
  • 1/2 cup uncooked Instant Rice
  • 4 cups boiling Hot Water
  • 1 Green Bell Pepper - chopped
  • 1 Red Bell Pepper - chopped
  • 1 Medium Onion - chopped
  • 1 cup Shredded Cheese (Kraft 4 Cheese)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Brown and Crumble sausage; drain
  3. In a sauce pan, on medium heat, combine soup mix, water, and instant rice; cook for 7 minutes. Add sausage, onion, and bell peppers
  4. Pour mixture into 2qt covered casserole dish
  5. Cover, and bake for 60 minutes. Remove from heat, add cheese, and let rest for at least 10 minutes


  1. Do you have a microwave on the boat? How many months do you have before shipping out? Start playing with food in the microwave...

  2. @jomamma: No, no microwave. The power draw of a microwave will be more than we will have on tap with the battery banks. We will have a generator on board for emergencies, but that requires gasoline and we plan on fuel ups of gasoline being few and far between. Our goal is to live on the hook. If we were in a marina, with quality power, then a microwave is a great option.
