Recipe of the week: Sizzling Sausage Casserole

Leave a comment

Hello food…..

Sizzling is used in this Jess’s Messes recipe, not to describe the noise of a sizzling sausage sizzling away in a sizzling pan (sizzling mentioned too many times?), it is in fact used to describe the spiciness of the dish. I made it nice and spicy to take the edge of a freezing cold day in rainy Manchester, but you can easily adjust the amount of Paprika to make it to your taste. I also added loads of vegetables. This is not necessarily essential, just a way of using things up!

What do I need?
(Serves 6)

A Sizzling Sausage
  • 1 Tbsp Sunflower Oil
  • 6 Sausages (chopped into about 6 pieces each)
  • 1 White Onion
  • 2 Cloves Garlic
  • 2 Carrots
  • 3 Medium Potatoes
  • 1 Courgette
  • 1 Red Pepper
  • 600g Chopped Tomatoes
  • 2 Bay Leaves
  • 1 Tsp Oregano
  • 2 Tsp Paprika
  • Salt and Pepper

How do I do it?

  1. Place the oil in a heavy based pan and heat. Add the chopped up bits of sausage and cook quickly until golden brown. Remove from pan.
  2. Dice the onions and crush the garlic – add to pan. Add a small amount of salt and the paprika and cook until onions have softended, but not coloured.
  3. Add the roughly chopped: carrots, potatoes, courgette, pepper and the chopped tomatoes and bring to the boil.
  4. Return the sausages to the pan and add oregano and bay leaves.
  5. Cover and leave to cook ont he hob at a medium heat for 30 minutes (or until potatoes have softened completely).
  6. Add salt and pepper to taste.

* You could add lentils if you want to bulk it out a bit! 🙂

Enjoy.
