Comfort food with vegetables. I made up this recipe. Both my 18-year-old son and 14-year-old daughter loved it - it's not always easy to satisfy them both!

  • Place potatoes in a large bowl. Add milk, butter, and garlic. Blend potatoes until creamy with an electric mixer. Divide mashed potatoes among bowls.

  • Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add sausage; cook until warmed through, 2 to 3 minutes. Add chopped asparagus, corn, and broccoli florets. Pour in broth; cover, and simmer, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are almost cooked through, about 5 minutes.

  • Scoop 1 cup of broth out of the skillet into a small bowl. Whisk in flour until smooth. Pour broth mixture back into skillet. Stir until a thickened gravy forms, about 5 minutes.

  • Serve sausage mixture and gravy over mashed potatoes. Season with black pepper.

Cook's Note:

Repeat step 4 until gravy is desired thickness.

Simple, nutritious, and delicious. I did not have asparagus, so I just put in some peppers and extra broccoli. My husband took one bite and said that this recipe was a keeper. Read More

I made this recipe as written. My wife and I both enjoyed this and I will definitely make this again. Being we enjoy food a little on the spicy side I will probably add some red pepper flake next time to kick it up a notch. Read More

This was a good comfort meal...I made it exactly as written. Needed just a little more "pop" so I added more pepper to the leftovers and a tad more salt. Maybe adding some red pepper flakes while it's cooking the next time will be just what it needs to make it 5 stars. My kids did like it though! Thank you for the recipe.:) Read More

It doesn t sound like this recipe would be good but it s terrific! I followed the directions exactly as written and I don t think it needs any adjustments. I wonder though if it would be as good with mashed cauliflower instead of potatoes. Certainly would be even healthier! Read More
