Prizewinning Plate: Broccoli Sausage Pie

By Laurie McGovern, User

Need a little help with your weeknight dinners? users, Laurie, sent in this recipe for her Broccoli Sausage Pie to help! It was an instant hit in the Test Kitchen because of it’s so easy to prepare, and slam packed with flavor. Not to mention, who doesn’t love a casserole that you can prepare in advance?

Thanks for your recipe, Laurie!

Broccoli Sausage Pie

2 pks chopped frozen broccoli
1-2 lbs. sausage (5 links), casing removed and crumbled
1/4 tsp. garlic salt
1 egg beaten
2/3 - 3/4 cup milk
Mozzarella cheese, shredded
2-3 Tbs. flour
1-2 medium onions (finely chopped)
2 pks refrigerated crescent rolls (When ready to line baking dish, pull 1 pack out of refrigerator - do not pull second pack until actual moment of use. Crescent rolls spread best when cold.)
3-6 ozs. cream cheese, softened

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Brown sausage & onions until brown, drain fat. When cool, crumble sausage and put back into cooking pan. (A cast iron skillet works well.)

At the same time in a separate pot, cook frozen broccoli. Squeeze and drain really well, pressing out all the moisture.) Add garlic salt, and flour to sausage and mix. Mix in cream cheese, then add milk. (Start with 2/3 cup and add additional as needed.) Mix gradually. Stir in egg and broccoli. Line the bottom of a 13x9 pan with 1 pack of crescent rolls, with fingers gently spread to cover bottom of pan and slightly up sides of dish. Be careful not to spread too thinly. Add mixture then top with shredded mozzarella cheese. Top with second pack of crescent rolls and again, very gently spread to cover and push slightly into sides of dish. Prick the top with fork as you would a pie. Brush the top with milk, and bake 40-45 minutes at 350 degrees.

Remove from oven and let cool 10 minutes. Serve.

I made this recipe, and this is what I did...I used 1 pound of mild breakfast sausage and also 1/2 pound ground beef. I used about 3-4 ounces of the cream cheese, and just 1 package of frozen broccoli that I steamed in the microwave. For the mozzerella, I used about 1 cup, but may use more next time. It was really good. My whole family loved it!

Just a question on the cream cheese, does that mean 3 to 6 ozs of cream cheese? I'm guessing use as much as you like?
