Corn Sausage Pie

Growing up, my Nana made dinner for us every day. And we had dinner together every day. And we ate whatever it was that she made. Most of the time I loved her recipes. I was looking through my recipe collection and came across "Corn Sausage Pie" and remembered it with fondness, though I've never tried to make it before. But I was asking my siblings and apparently they didn't love it. Weird. What's not to love? It's got corn, sausage, and biscuits! It's a pretty easy recipe, so I thought I would make it.

It was just as good as I remembered!

So I thought I would share it.

Corn Sausage Pie
Brown 1 lb link sausages (I used turkey sausage, and then because there wasn't any drippings, used just a little olive oil for the next step.)

Pour off all but 4 T. of the sausage drippings, and sautee in the drippings:

3 T. finely chopped green pepper
2 T. finely chopped onion (I used green onions because that is what I had on hand. Delicious!)

Next, blend in:

3 T. flour
1 t. salt
dash of pepper

Remove from heat.

Gradually mix in:

3/4 cup milk
2 eggs, beaten
2 1/2 cups cream-style corn

Return to heat and stir constantly until mixture is heated through. Pour into greased casserole (8 1/2" diameter and 1 3/4" deep).

Arrange on top of the mixture the browned link sausages. I sprinkled more green onions on top.

Cover with biscuits. I just bought Pillsbury biscuits that come in the cans. It worked perfectly! I tore mine apart to make them fit better.

Bake 20 minutes in 425 degree oven (hot oven) or until biscuits are cooked throughly. Serve hot. Makes six servings.

So yummy!! Hope you enjoy!

  1. We loooooovvvve this, too! Yeah, seriously a Bryson classic. Your sibs who don't love it...hmmm....maybe they're not really Brysons? Anyway, if you want to make it "healthier", you can use turkey sausage (I have a recipe for sausage made from ground turkey, super easy, if you want) and lose a bunch of the fat. We make that when we *don't* have visitors. If we have visitors...well, then, they need the real thing :)
