Roasted squash pureed with cream creates a sweet, smooth casserole base that is the perfect juxtaposition to a salty, crunchy sausage topping. Stir in a few cups of sautéd kale to make this feel a little less indulgent.
Squash? Meh. Kale? Ugh. Sausage? Eh, well maybe.
Despite it’s name, squash, kale, and sausage casserole is delicious. I promise. In fact, this dish is one of my new fall favorites.
I’m not sure if I should recommend this as breakfast or dinner or a sort of breakfast for dinner. It’s great with a side of scrambled eggs or an egg over easy on top. Add a buttered piece of sourdough toast, and mmm, perfection.
I also think this dish would make a great Thanksgiving Day side. It has traditional fall flavors courtesy of the squash but is also something just a bit new.
