Sausage casserole

Posted on in recipes.

Serves 2-3.


You will need:

  • 4 sausages
  • 1 onion
  • (optional) 4 shallots
  • 1-2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 medium potato, peeled and diced
  • ½ pint chicken stock
  • 1 sprig chopped rosemary
  • 1 pepper, sliced
  • 200g tin chopped tomatoes
  • (optional) 200g tinned/pre-soaked lentils
  • 1 tbsp cider vinegar
  • 2 tsp brown sugar


  1. Preheat oven to 180C (gas 4)
  2. Melt a little butter in a saucepan. Pierce and brown the sausages, then set them aside.
  3. Add onions and garlic, cook slowly for 5 mins until tender.
  4. Add potato, fry for 5 mins. Take care not to burn the onion/garlic.
  5. Gradually add stock, stir well and return the sausages.
  6. Slowly add half the rosemary, tomatoes, pepper, lentils, vinegar and sugar. Ensure the liquid covers the sausages; it will reduce later.
  7. Cook on the stove for a few more minutes. Slowly increase the heat until it simmers - taste, add a little more sugar if needed.
  8. Transfer to casserole dish. Cook uncovered for about an hour.
  9. Garnish with rosemary. Serve with beans, rice, polenta or cous cous.
