I first made this recipe for Sausage Pie when I was short on time and ingredients, so I was looking for a way to make a meal with something I already had in the fridge. I liked the results so much, I’ve planned ahead to make it several times since. It’s a good dish to serve to company too, as it seems a bit more involved to put together than it actually is.
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 1 Tblsp. butter or olive oil
- ¾ cup milk
- ¾ cup flour
- 3 large eggs
- 1-1/4 lbs. of spicy, pre-cooked sausage such as andouille, chorizo or Italian sausage, sliced into small chunks
- ½ cup green onions, chopped
- Salt and black pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Melt butter in a 10-inch oven-safe skillet on medium high heat. Add onions and stir frequently until limp and clear, about 5 minutes. Arrange chunks of sausage evenly on top of onions.
Mix milk, flour and eggs with a whisk in a large bowl until smooth. Pour milk and egg mixture over sausages in pan and bake for about 35 to 40 minutes, or until puffed, crisp and brown. Remove from oven and sprinkle with green onions. Salt to taste and divide into even portions before serving. Serves 6.
You can also transfer sautéed onions and sausage to a buttered 8″ x 8″ casserole dish if you’d like to serve it in something other than the over-safe skillet.
