12 Pork Sausages
2 tbsp oil

2 onions, sliced
2 cloves garlic, sliced
2 tsp smoked paprika
100ml red or white wine (or water)

Sausage, Bacon & Bean Cassoulet


Using a large saucepan (one with a lid), gently brown the sausages in 1 tbsp of oil, add the bacon and fry lightly then set aside.

Add the rest of the oil to the pan and fry the onions, adding the garlic when the onions start to soften. Cook until golden, then stir in the paprika.

Add the wine or water then the tomatoes, tomato purée, stock, Worcestershire sauce, sugar and herbs.

Bring to a simmer, then return the sausages and bacon to the pan. Cover the pan with the lid and simmer very gently for 20 minutes.

Add the beans and cook for a further 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until thickened.

Season to taste and serve hot!
