Turkey Sausage & Roasted Eggplant Casserole made with Jimmy Deans fully cooked turkey sausage crumbles, eggplant, mushrooms, garlic, Italian cheeses and breadcrumbs. A tasty meal that’s ready in about 30 minutes!
I love trying new products, especially when those products make my life easier. We’re all busy and any shortcut we can take when preparing meals for our family just makes life that much simpler.
So when Jimmy Dean contacted me to see if I’d be interested in trying their new sausage crumbles, I didn’t hesitate and knew exactly what I’d be experimenting with. A few years ago I created a casserole dish with roasted eggplant, sausage, garlic, mushrooms, rosemary and white wine that my family loved.
I haven’t made this meal since and knew with this new Jimmy Dean product, I could easily substitute these sausage crumbles into my recipe and share this incredibly easy and delicious Turkey Sausage & Roasted Eggplant Casserole.
I chose to use the Turkey crumbles however, Jimmy Dean offers three kinds including Turkey, Original and Hot & Spicy; which can be found at your favorite store in the refrigerated section.
All of which would work beautifully in this recipe. The crumbles are fully cooked, which saved so much time in the kitchen. While the eggplant and mushrooms are roasting in the oven, you can prepare and gather the rest of ingredients so this meal can be ready in 30 minutes! ~Enjoy!
