November Harvest Casserole

November Harvest Casserole

This casserole is perfect for Thanksgiving or any other fall meal. The sweetness of the squash and the potatoes are a pleasant combination. I make this recipe with apple Gouda chicken sausages from Costco® but any other chicken sausage will do the trick. I originally created this recipe by combining extras in the fridge that needed to be cooked. Now, it is a staple in our home and everyone loves it!
