Sausage Casserole

I got this little recipe from a friends’ young son who treats his family to this. Again the smell is divine and it tastes so good. I always eat way too much. It’s a great way to use our award winning sausages. Always use high pork content sausages.

Ingredients

  • A dash of olive oil
  • 12 butchers sausages.
  • 1 onion
  • 3 or 4 peeled and cubed potatoes
  • 4 or 5 diced carrots
  • 2 cloves of garlic crushed
  • 1 teaspoon of paprika
  • a cinnamon stick
  • 1 400g can of chopped or cherry tomatoes
  • 1-2 bay leaves
  • 400mls of vegetable stock.

Method

Heat the oven to 180º or 160º fan. Brown the sausages in a casserole dish with the oil. Remove the sausages and soften the onions and add garlic and paprika and cook for another minute. Add the potatoes and mix through. Add a tin of tomatoes and then fill the tin with vegetable stock and add with the cinnamon stick and bay leaves. Bring the casserole to a simmer. Return the sausages and pop into the preheated oven for 45 minutes or until the potatoes are cooked!
