    Simple Sausage Casserole


    A British take on the French Cassoulet! Wonderfully thick and hearty, and made with our favourite traditional British pork sausage..

  • Ingredients
    • 8 Pork Sausages
    • 1 tbsp olive oil
    • 1onion, sliced
    • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
    • 1 leek, thickly sliced
    • 2medium potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks (approx 450g)
    • 2 tsp smoked paprika
    • 2 400g tins plum tomatoes
    • splash of red wine
    • 200ml beef stock
    • 350g cannelini beans (drained weight)
    • salt and pepper
    • small handful of flat-leaf parsley or chives, chopped
    • crusty bread, to serve
  • Method
    1. Heat the oil in a large sauté pan and fry the sausages for -10 minutes, turning frequently until browned all over. Remove from the pan.
    2. Drain any excess oil from the pan then add the onion and garlic and sauté for a few minutes to soften. Add in the leeks, potato and smoked paprika and cook for 4-5 mins.
    3. Pour in the tomatoes, red wine and stock and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat and return the sausages to the pan, along with the cannelini beans. Cover with a lid and cook for 20-25 mins over a low heat, stirring occasionally. Remove the lid and continue to cook for a further 5-10 mins.
    4. Season to taste, and scatter with parsley or chives. Serve with a crusty bread.
