I had two cheese biscuits left over from breakfast today and was wondering what to do with them.  When I opened the fridge to decide what to do for lunch, I saw there was about 1 cup of fresh cauliflower and a small amount of breakfast sausage.  I decided to get creative at the skillet and concocted what ended up being a very tasty dish indeed.  I confess it tastes much better than it looks in the picture.  What I ended up with was a flavor similar to classic Shepard’s Pie but with sausage instead of the traditional beef. It really tasted like there was mashed potatoes in this dish!  This dish is not suitable for Induction unless you made an unsweetened MIM with some cheese added and used that instead of the cheese biscuits.


2 cheese biscuits  (or other plan suitable biscuits or muffin)

¼ lb. pork sausage

1 green onion, chopped

2 T. red pepper, chopped

3/4 c. cauliflower, boiled or steamed

Pinch salt and pepper

2 oz. grated cheddar cheese


Cook sausage, crumbling as it cooks until no longer pink.  Add chopped green onion and red pepper and saute until nearly tender.  Lightly grease a casserole dish.  Break up the two cheese biscuits on the bottom of the dish.  Next put the steamed, mashed cauliflower as evenly over this as possible, mashing any large pieces pretty flat.  Next add the meat and vegetable mixture evenly.    Top with grated cheddar and bake at 350º for 20 minutes.
