Mashed potatoes are baked with cubed, white bread, sausage, green pepper and onion. Substitute turkey sausage if you prefer. This dish freezes well.
INGREDIENTS (for 8 servings):
- 6 large potatoes, peeled and quartered
- 1/4 cup skim milk
- 1 pound ground pork sausage
- 1 green bell pepper, chopped
- 1 onion, chopped
- 1 (1 pound) loaf dry white bread, crusts removed and cubed
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add potatoes and cook until tender, about 15 minutes. Drain and mash with milk.
Meanwhile, place sausage in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium high heat until evenly brown. Stir in green pepper and onion and cook for about 5 minutes.
Fold cubed bread into potatoes, then gently fold in sausage mixture. Transfer to a 9x13 inch baking dish.
Bake in preheated oven for 30 to 45 minutes, or until heated through.
