Granny’s Sausage & Rice Casserole

These days, we’re all challenged with limited travel and supplies, but that doesn’t mean dinners have to become limited in creativity and taste.  Many of us have shopped and stocked up on basic ingredients, so my goal is to share recipes that use limited ingredients and focus on the staples that we all seem to have in our pantries, refrigerators, and freezers.

The first recipe up today is one from my childhood…my granny’s sausage casserole.  Being born in the Great Depression, my granny is an expert in using what you have and not wasting anything.
