Made my family's sausage casserole recipe in cast iron for the first time ever. I've been baking it in a 2 qt Pyrex for so long that it never even occurred to me to change. Tasted just as delicious, maybe even 1% more so.
I say "my family's" recipe even though I know they didn't come up with it, but I've never seen it anywhere else. I think last time I asked Mom over email where it came from she never responded. Maybe there's scandal and intrigue attached.
Anyway it involves a tube of breakfast sausage, a can of tomatoes, a can of biscuits, and so on. I've thought many times over the years (once I became a bit more of a foodie) that I should make it one time with, like, artisan sausage and fresh tomatoes and from-scratch biscuits ... and then every time I end up reminding myself, "That's not the POINT of this recipe. The point is to make the comfort food you remember from childhood" and I put away those ideas and go buy a tube of sausage and a can of tomatoes and pop open some biscuits. The End.
