What You Will Need to Make the Smoked Sausage and Broccoli Casserole
When preparing the Large Family Smoked Sausage and Broccoli Casserole, you will need the following ingredients:
- Raw Rice. Cook the rice as directed on the package. Try making rice in the instant pot.
- Smoked Sausage. Cut your smoked sausage lengthwise and then into small pieces.
- Broccoli Stems and Florets. Grab two cups of frozen broccoli stems and florets to make this casserole. (I also have a great roasted broccoli recipe!)
- Shredded Cheddar Cheese. Add cheddar cheese to the casserole to give the dish more flavor.
Other ingredients to use include minced garlic, salt, pepper, milk, garlic powder, and olive oil.
How to Freeze the Smoked Sausage and Broccoli Casserole
Make this recipe ahead and freeze the Smoked Sausage and Broccoli Casserole in the casserole dish after assembling it. Then cover it with plastic wrap and two layers of aluminum foil. Make sure to put the foil on tight and seal the corners of it around the casserole dish to keep it covered. When you put your meal in the freezer, you can keep it there for about six months. However, you may plan to eat it way before the six-month period. If you plan to eat the hearty casserole within three days, you do not need to put it in the freezer.
Ingredients to Add to Your Large Family Smoked Sausage and Broccoli Casserole
Add other ingredients to the Large Family Smoked Sausage and Broccoli Casserole if you want to. You can include other vegetables, such as sliced green peppers, diced tomatoes, corn, and cauliflower florets to make it even more nutritional.
You can use any brand of smoked sausage that you would prefer. You might also want to use a blend of different cheeses. If you do not have cheddar cheese available, you can use mozzarella, sharp cheddar, gruyere cheese, or any other type that you do have and like eating. You can also use cauliflower rice as a replacement for traditional rice to make this a low-carb dish.
