Easy sausage casserole


  1. 4 large potatoes
  2. 4 carrots
  3. 8 good-quality sausages from outdoor-reared pigs
  4. 2 tbsp olive oil
  5. 1 onion, chopped
  6. 1 garlic clove, crushed
  7. 1 tsp paprika
  8. 400g can chopped tomatoes
  9. 400ml vegetable stock
  10. 1-2 bay leaves


  1. 1. Turn the oven to 180°C/fan160°C/gas 4. Peel the potatoes and carefully cut them in half, then into quarters. Peel the carrots and cut each carrot into about 4 or 5 even pieces.
  2. 2. Prick the sausages all over with a fork – this helps the fat to run out of the sausages, so that they don’t split open as they cook. Heat the olive oil in a heavy-based casserole and fry the sausages, turning often, until lightly golden all over – this should take about 10 minutes. Remove the sausages from the pan and put them on a plate.
  3. 3. Add the chopped onion to the casserole (there will still be some oil in the pan from the sausages) and continue to cook over a low heat for 5-10 minutes, until the onion is slightly soft. Add the garlic and paprika and cook for another minute.
  4. 4. Add the chopped potatoes and carrots and stir everything around in the casserole so that the vegetables are coated with the oil.
  5. 5. Add the tomatoes and stock (to measure the stock, you can use the empty tomato can – filled up, it will hold 400ml of stock) and the bay leaves. Bring to a simmer (so it’s just bubbling gently). Return the sausages to the casserole.
  6. 6. Using your oven gloves, carefully put the casserole into the oven. Cook for 45 minutes, until the potatoes are cooked through, and serve.

Hi, Sorry but this recipe is not thought out properly and I agree with the other comments, it doesn't work. The reason is that 45 minutes in a casserole dish at 180 degrees will not cook the carrots and the potatoes if they are not par boiled previously. You need to transfer the casserole back to a pot to cook on the hob. Or par boil the carrots and potatoes first. I'm a bit annoyed because my wife is now angry because she has been waiting 2 hours for her dinner. Shows the flaws of finding recipes on google.

This recipe needs to be re-written. There is no way that the potatoes are cooked in the time stated. My suggestion, if you want to get it sorted in an hour, would be to par boil both the spuds and the carrots, . Otherwise you may need extra stock/water and another 45 minutes.

Lovely recipe but would cook potatoes first. I had this casserole in the oven for 90 minutes and potatoes were still hard.
