Simple Sausage Supper
Do you and your family love sausage? Here at our house, we sure do.
But, honestly, we don’t have the time in the morning to fix sausage and scrambled eggs or sausage gravy and biscuits or even a sausage quiche. Do you? You probably don’t have time for that either.
Sausage isn’t just for Breakfast
There are ways of using sausage for other meals. One of our favorite sausage recipes is for a wonderful dinner meal. I found a Simple Sausage Supper recipe years ago. We made a few revisions and made it our very own. And, we love it!

This meal became one of my daughter’s favorites. She still enjoys it when she comes for a visit. The rest of our family also loves it.
This Simple Sausage Supper is super simple to make. It has only 10 ingredients and takes about 35 minutes from start to finish. All of the ingredients except two are cooked and/or heated on the stovetop and then are transferred to a baking pan. About 25 minutes later, a super tasty full meal is ready – meat, vegetables and bread. This fantastic dish is a whole meal in one!
Enough talk, here’s the recipe:
Simple Sausage Supper
1 pound pork sausage
½ cup chopped onion
2 T. flour
16 oz. diced tomatoes, undrained
4 -5 oz. mushroom pieces and stems, undrained
½ t. oregano leaves
½ t. basil leaves
½ t. garlic powder
1 can of refrigerated crescent rolls
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
In a skillet*, brown sausage and onion. Drain. Sprinkle with flour. Add remaining ingredients except the crescent rolls and the mozzarella cheese. Heat until hot and bubbly on the stovetop; stirring until slightly thickened. Pour into an 8 x 8 baking pan. Unroll the crescent rolls** and spread on the mixture. Top with cheese. Bake at 400 degrees (or 385 degrees if using a gas oven) for 15- 18 minutes or until golden brown.
Serves 4 – 6

Bake it in a cast iron pan. I love this one. It works perfectly for this Simple Sausage Supper and many other dishes. If you haven’t tried cooking and baking in a cast iron pan before, be prepared to fall in love with them. They are awesome! In the future, I’ll be sharing some more cast iron pan recipes that you are sure to love. The only reason I didn’t use mine for this meal was because a lot of my cookware is still packed away and that includes my cast iron pans.
**You can bake the extra crescent rolls on a small baking pan in the oven with the Simple Sausage Supper. Just follow the package instructions or adjust the time with the different temperature. They will be done before your Simple Sausage Supper is, so don’t forget to pull them out early, or put them in a few minutes later so they’ll be done at the same time.
Let me know if you try this one dish meal and how much your family loved it.
