This is it guys, next week my little guy starts school. I know I keep telling you how nervous I am but I can’t help it. My baby is growing up too fast! This week we had kindergarten orientation at his new school and it was a little overwhelming. There is no more denying that this is going to happen, lol. I even signed up to be on the PTA so I can apply to be a room mom. I warned you, when I do something I’m in 110%.I’m still freaking out a little about how our schedules are going to work. My son will have to catch the bus in the morning and I have to get my daughter to daycare. Before they were both going to the same place at the same time. It is going to be an adjustment to figure out how to get everyone where they need to be on time in the mornings….and then get everyone home in the evenings.
Since I have no control over that I’m focusing on the one thing I can do. Plan out dinner. You might have noticed that casseroles are my go-to solution. I love them because you just throw all of the ingredients in one dish and bake until they are ready, and they are great heated up the next day for lunch or another round of dinner.
I use turkey in a lot of my dishes because it is a lean, tasty substitution for beef or pork. I’ve been buying Shady Brook Farms turkey products for years. I like them because Shady Brook Farms works with over 700 independent farmer to produce turkeys that are raised without growth-promoting antibiotics. You can find Shady Brook Farms turkey products in the following states: ME, NH, VT, NY, NJ, MA, VA, RI, CT, PA, MD, DE, WV, NC, SC, GA, and FL. If you don’t live in those states have no fear you can look for Shady Brook Farms’ sister brand, Honeysuckle White!

Today’s recipe is all new to me. I made it for a dinner in honor of my niece who is heading off to college and it got great reviews from the family. How could it not? It is potatoes, Shady Brook Farms sweet Italian ground turkey sausage, and broccoli, cooked in a creamy cheese sauce. Yum! I diced up my potatoes into small pieces (1/2″ cubes) and dropped them into boiling water for about 5 minutes. Just long enough to soften them slightly. Par boiling them like that helps ensure they will cook through in the time it takes for the casserole to bake. While the potatoes cooked I made my cheese sauce using American cheese. Then I mixed the potatoes, cheese, turkey sausage and broccoli together, poured it into a casserole dish, and baked it at 400°F for 45 minutes.
That’s a complete meal baked up into one delicious, cheesy casserole! It was also just as delicious for lunch the next day. I love two-for-one meals :).
