Have been asked to make stovies (not corned beef, real meat ones) for a friends party (approx 50 people) but have no idea where to start! Have tons of cooking Experience but have never done stovies. Pleaee help! She is scottish, I'm not, which might explain a little!

Generally potato, onion, sausage or mince. I don't think you can go wrong with that

Thinly sliced potatoes and onions, layer up with sausages and add stock and seasoning then cover and cook til done - about 60-70 mins from memory, uncovering half way through. Can brown sausages first or the look a bit anemic. Worth a trial run before cooking for 50 though. Never had with mince but love the corned beef version.

Has to be square sausage though

Must be left over roast beef or roast lamb, never mince confused layered with onions and potatoes

Slice sausage, onions, potatoes and I always add carrots. Potatoes have to be the floury kind, do that they break down properly. Dripping and only enough water to stop the stuff sticking, salt and plenty of pepper. Stories are the food of the gods.

I'm from the east coast and only ever had stovies made with mince.

And I'm loving the mention of Burdalls Gravy Salt.

It's amazing how the smallest things can take you down memory lane and make you think of your mum.

OP, I had a family reunion about a month ago for about 45 people and Stovies was one of the dishes on the menu.

It wiz bra
