Turkey Sausage Cauliflower Casserole

I started by cutting up the cauliflower and throwing it in a pot of boiling water for a few minutes. While that was boiling, I de-cased the turkey sausage (gross) and started browning that – diced up the onions and added them in with the seasonings. Throw in some tomatoes, cook a bit longer, mix EVERYTHING together. I transferred this to a baking dish (which has since bit the dust! We got it right after our wedding and it had a big crack in it after we made this recipe…RIP baking dish, I will miss you) Anyway back on track! I popped the dish in the oven to bake for about 20 minutes, then I topped the casserole evenly with Mozzarella and stuck it back in until it was golden brown and bubbly.

    I made this, and it was quite good, but I am noticing the recipe calls for yellow onion, but the pics show red onion. Also, recipe calls for mozzarella cheese, but your pic has an orangish cheese. Did you alter it? Also, did you drain your diced tomatoes, because mine had alot more liquid than yours looks like it did.

    By the way, I’ve tried your recipes for the last week and they have been awesome!! Thanks for sharing them!

      How funny! I did put down yellow onion – I used red – I think it is what I had on hand. Usually, I make this with mozzarella! It is SO good! No, did not drain the tomatoes. 🙂 I am so happy you like the recipes! I am going to update the onion color on this one. 🙂 Thanks!

    This was FANTASTIC! It’s my favorite fix recipe I’ve made so far. I used hot Italian turkey sausage and yellow onion. I did not use fresh thyme, but used the jarred spice. I just sprinkled it evenly on top of the mixture in the pan and didn’t measure. I doubled the recipe and put it in 2 casserole dishes side by side. I put cheese on one batch and left the other cheeseless. It is fabulous either way. I’ve been eating it without the cheese to save my blue. The cheese could be added when it’s reheated if desired. When it was cooled, I doled out single portions and put each in a snack size ziploc. Thanks for my new favorite fix recipe!
