Sausage Noodle Casserole

This is cozy and hearty; a classic comfort food the whole family will love!

Ingredients

  • 12 ounces egg noodles we prefer extra wide
  • 1 (16 ounce) package pork sausage such as Jimmy Dean
  • 1/2 medium yellow onion chopped
  • 1 cup mushrooms finely chopped
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup milk any kind
  • 1 and 1/2 cups chicken broth
  • 1/2 teaspoon table salt
  • 8-10 cranks freshly-ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2/3 cup breadcrumbs

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and cook egg noodles just shy of al dente, according to package directions. Drain and set aside.
  • While the noodles cook, add sausage and onion to a large oven-safe skillet set over medium-high heat. Cook for 4-5 minutes, stirring to break the sausage up into crumbles, until the onion is tender and the sausage is browned. Using a large spoon or spatula, transfer the mixture to a paper towel-lined plate and set aside. If a lot of fat remains in the pan, drain a bit off.
  • Melt butter in the same skillet, then add the chopped mushrooms and cook for 3 minutes. Stir in the flour and cook for 1 minute more. Gradually stir in milk and broth, then season with salt, pepper, and nutmeg. Bring the sauce to a simmer and cook for 3-4 minutes to thicken slightly.
  • Return sausage and onion to the pan, followed by the cheese and cooked egg noodles. Stir well and remove pan from the heat. Sprinkle breadcrumbs evenly on top.
  • Transfer skillet to the oven and bake for 20 minutes. Remove from the oven, serve, and enjoy!

Notes

  • This makes a large casserole. Leftovers keep very well, so it's great for sharing or eating over several days. Of course you can also halve the recipe; I just find it simpler to use the full packages of egg noodles and sausage. The extras always seem to disappear!
