Frugal Sausage Casserole is an easy “all in” recipe that provides a wonderful and complete dinner for the entire family!

I love to use the honey flavoured sausages in cooking, they just give a wonderful almost caramelised flavour, but beef or Pork sausage are just fine if you want to cut costs.

For this low-cost version, we used thin beef sausages, which are usually purchased in bulk and can be easily frozen.

For the price estimates here we’ve used a large national supermarket, but it’s possible (and highly encouraged) for you to look around at your local farmers market, local butcher or at discount grocers. You’re likely to find many of these ingredients even cheaper there!
