  • 4 large potatoes
  • 4 carrots
  • 8 good-quality sausages from outdoor-reared pigs
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 400g can chopped tomatoes
  • 400ml vegetable stock (we like Knorr)
  • 1-2 bay leaves


  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. 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. 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. Add the chopped potatoes and carrots and stir everything around in the casserole so that the vegetables are coated with the oil.
  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. Using your oven gloves, carefully put the casserole into the oven. Cook for 45 minutes, until the potatoes are cooked through, and serve.

    I’ve just moved out and got my own place. I Really wanted to try and cook meals from scratch. I hd some sausages in the fridge and potatoes so googled some recipes. I came across this one and thought it looked easy and didnt take too much time. Well… it came out really well and taste amazing. For my first attempt cooking it tasted like I had been cooking for years :). Thankyou it was delicious.

    I have one big issue: my carrots and potatoes were not even close to being properly cooked in the time stated, I even cut them into smaller chunks than recommended. The flavour of the casserole was nice but I think you really need to par boil/steam your vegetables slightly first. I used beef stock as recommended by Elizabeth Olu-Awe and also instead of smoke paprika I added chopped chorizo and a little cayenne pepper. I think if I make this again I would throw it all in a slow cooker instead of the oven and it would come our beautifully then.

    Tried this recipe this evening and it was absolutely lovely. Very easy to follow and cheap to make. I swapped the paprika for chopped fresh chillies and used beef stock instead of the veg but still turned out delicious. Highly recommended.

    I love this recipe because it is simple to do, I always have the ingredients for it and whenever it’s served plates are empty!
