View Full Version : Sausage trauma...
ok,well it's not THAT bad but I could use some help! I need to make something casserole-like that I can cook now while Leah is snoozing and just heat up later, as I won't be in until quite late.
(would quite like to use them all.)
Everything I can see has tinned tomatoes in, and my DH can't stand tomatoes which is always where I struggle. I don't have a dry mix or any cider and am all out of ideas! I have stock and eggs and herbs and spices and things, can anyone help?!
Could you add a tin of baked beans or is that a no-no on the tomato front?
He won't eat beans of any kind either :-( Fussy git! I could drain off the sauce though, he eats dolmio etc, so he would be ok so long as it isn't "real" tomatoes...
How about layering them all in a pie (thinly slice potatoes so they end up on top) like a hot pot? You could poor over some chicken stock, top with butter and bake in the oven.
That sounds good - which bits do I need to cook first, or just layer it all raw? Will mushrooms go funny in it?
You might want to cook the sausages a bit first. I think mushrooms would be fine, just make sure you everything is covered by stock and it should all cook ok. Lots of butter on the top though, so it goes crispy and golden.
I actually saw a recipe for this in BBC easy cook there was a few recipes where they chopped up the sausages into meatball sized chunks..
Cheesy meatball and potato bake.
Fry some onions in some oil for 5 mins snip the sausages into 4 (a 454g pack) as you add them to the pan cook for 5 mins more. At this stage you could add your mushrooms or whatever else you fancy. Use 700g thinly sliced pots. Spread half the pots over the base of an oven proof dish. Tip the sausages and onion in cover with the remaining pots. Pour over 300ml of veg stock .. Cover with foil and bake for around an hour. Remove foil sprinkle with cheese and let the cheese melt and turn golden about another 15 mins. Then serve. I thought this might give you an idea on times and quantities .
Ps I would add the peppers etc but maybe cook the carrots to go with it because they tend to take longer to go soft
Thank you - I did the layering thing (sorry Lisa didn't get your reply in time!) and it was really good - even DH was impressed :-) Thank you all again!
Very good Sersha:clap: Did you precookanything in the end ? I fancy making it myself now :laff: We love sausages in this house esp Tesco Finest
I browned the sausages and par-boiled the potatoes, but that was it. Would definately try it again!
