Sausage & bean casserole
This recipe relies on good quality sausages – instead of buying lots of cheap ones, buy 3 or 4 good meaty, herby ones. This dish makes 4 adult serves. Add mash and some green vegetables for a quick, nourishing and tasty weeknight dinner.
How to make
Heat a frying pan till very hot, prick the sausages all over and fry them quickly until brown. Add the onion, celery and carrots and a splash of oil if needed and cook gently until the onion and celery are soft. Stir in the flour and then add the beef stock.
Stir in the baked beans, Worcestershire sauce, brown sugar and whole grain mustard.
Fish out the sausages, which should now be completely cooked through.
Slice the sausages into chunks and return the sausage chunks to the pan, season with salt and pepper and simmer until sauce thickens.
