Thanks! Glad you enjoyed it :)

In the directions of the recipe it mentions cauliflower, but not in the ingredients. Could you please clarify? I want to make this for dinner Tues. night. Thanks!!

Here's the original recipe from the recipe room, and there's no mention of cauliflower in the directions.

4 large chicken breast halves-- pounded even but not too thin
salt, pepper and garlic powder to season chicken
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 pound pork sausage-- roll type breakfast sausage
4 ounces cream cheese -- softened
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese -- divided
8 ounces button mushroom-- fresh, sliced or quartered
2 tablespoons chopped parsley -- (2 to 3), optional

How to Prepare:
Season chicken and brown for 3 minutes on each side in hot oil. Set aside and then crumble and cook the sausage. Drain well and let cool slightly. Preheat oven to 350f. Spray a casserole or baking pan with cooking spray and place mushrooms in the bottom. In a bowl, mix the sausage, cream cheese, 1/2 the shredded cheese and parsley well. Spoon and smooth over the mushrooms and place the chicken on top. Cover and bake for 30 minutes, remove cover, sprinkle over remaining cheese and parsley and bake an additional 15 minutes or until the cheese is melted and browned and the chicken is completely cooked.

I never added cauliflower, but I'm sure you could add it with the mushrooms:)

I think I'm going to try this one tonight with hamburger...

Jared6102 04-29-2003 01:36 PM

I don't know where the cauliflower came from?

I copied and pasted it from the "Handy Dandy Casserole" Sticky, cauliflower is posted in the directions. And yes, the original recipe doesn't list cauliflower in it????

Anyway, it's great recipe (I make it w/o cauliflower)

Thanks, Dottie!

I wonder if my variation is in that thread and it does have cauliflower.

4 cups cooked chicken, cubed
1 lb. pork sausage
1 stalk celery, chopped fine
1 T. onion, chopped
1/2 lb. mushrooms, sliced
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
16 oz. bag frozen cauliflower, cooked well and drained
8 oz. shredded cheddar
1/2 t. pepper
Paprika (optional)

Brown the sausage with the celery, onion and mushrooms. Stir the softened cream cheese into the sausage mixture until well blended. Coarsely chop the cooked cauliflower. Mix all ingredients and spread in a greased 9x13" baking dish. If desired, dust the top with paprika. Bake, covered with foil, at 350║ for about 30 minutes. Uncover and bake until hot and bubbly and top is lightly browned, about 10-15 minutes. Makes 8-12 servings. (8 servings - 6 carbs each) (10 servings - 4.5 carbs each) (12 servings - 4 carbs each)

This is based on Dottie's Sausage, Mushroom and Cream Cheese Chicken Casserole. This is a favorite. It tastes like chicken and dressing.

Sounds good!

LindaSue, you're website is
GREAT!!! So many good recipes!

My hubby feel in love with Dottie's recipe.
Love Love Love:D :cool:

I also wondered about the cauliflower, I did include it...yummy.

People have shared some really incredible recipes, I am having a ball trying all of them.

bumping because I'm making this tonight (Linda sue's version)

Will try Dottie's after this.

they both sound delicious :)

EIGHT YEARS since this was posted. Wow.

Linda Sue's version was the very first low carb casserole recipe I made back in 2003. It is awesome and still a favorite. It often comes up in threads about favorite recipes. It's great comfort food. I like to use sage flavored sausage or add sage seasoning in the fall so it has sort of a stuffing flavor.

What kind of sausage do y'all use in this casserole? I have some mild italian pork sausage, but I'm not sure that's the right thing. Thanks!

Soobee 07-04-2011 02:58 AM

I use Italian hot sausage.

LindaSue 07-04-2011 09:13 AM

I use breakfast sausage which gives the casserole a chicken and stuffing like flavor. Italian sausage would be good but it would change the flavor of the dish. In which case you could add some Italian seasonings, garlic, etc.

kalatraza 07-04-2011 04:23 PM

Thanks, ladies. The "reminiscent of stuffing" flavor will probably make my husband have a condition we call "happy tummy" around here, so I'll probably give the breakfast sausage version a shot first.

Susanpmi 03-27-2013 08:09 AM

I skipped the chicken, used Two rolls of sausage with sage, two large boxes of sliced fresh mushrooms, and two whole bricks of cream cheese to make a large casserole and it was delicious. Next time I might sautÚ the mushrooms ahead to get some of the water out. At any rate, the scale was down this morning and I will most definitely make again.

Does anyone else think Jared6102 from post#2 looks like the "Subway" Jared?
