Skillet Sausage Casserole

Day????? of Isolation! Or is it?

Anyone else in Victoria? We are still meant to be in isolation. However, I had to go and buy bunny food and cat food, the roads were packed, the shopping centre was packed and Coles was packed. I saw people walking around everywhere. Not like the last few weeks, today I saw not one person wearing a mask or gloves. It was like there was some sort of normality back.

Have Victorian’s seen how other states have relaxed their restrictions and just said “Bugger this, we are going to follow suit, no matter what Dan say’s”?

For those of us who have the kids at home, want something easy and quick for dinner but also filling and healthy? If you have a packet of snags in the freezer and don’t know what to do with them besides BBQ’s or hotdogs – I have the perfect recipe.

I used to cook for kids 5 days a week, for 6 years – so I was always coming up with ways for the kids to enjoy their food and eat their vegetables. This recipe worked well. Okay, so sausages aren’t the healthiest of food, but it’s packed with other goodies that are healthy and kids usually love sausages.

This doesn’t have to be made with BBQ sausages, you can use any sausage you like. For this dish I used Hov’s Kitchen’s Mediterranean sauce.

Turn those bbq snags into something different. One skillet is all you need to make this easy dinner.
