WHAT SAUSAGE WORKS BEST?
Use your favorite fully cooked sausage. Chicken, beef, turkey, or pork would all work. I prefer Applegate chicken sausages because the ingredient list is short but the flavor is always great. I get mine at Whole Foods. (Not an ad. Just sharing my preference if you’re looking for a brand to try.) Two other brands you might enjoy are Bilinski’s and Aidells.
TIPS & TRICKS FOR SUCCESS
Be sure to follow my hints and tips to make the best sausage green bean potato casserole ever! There are three types of tips considering the three steps of this recipe: the preparation, the cooking, and (for the creative ones) the improving of my delicious casserole.
You can use Kielbasa or smoked sausage in this. I use smoked sausage, as Kielbasa can sometimes be very difficult to find here in the UK. However, it works beautifully. Also, you can use either tinned green beans, thawed frozen beans, or cooked fresh green beans. I usually just use the tinned as they are something that I always have in my larder.
