Brown sausages.

Colmans do a nice packet mix. My children like baked beans in it.

Brown the sausages as you do not want pasty looking things.

Fry onions/pepper/celery/garlic at same time in same pan. Add water to cover, also tin of tomatoes and a few herbs.

Stick in oven for an hour or so. Serve with mash OR controversially - pasta!

marthamoo Fri 07-Jan-05 16:31:33

Pasta? Pasta? No I'm sorry, it has to be mash. Sling in some red wine too and drink the rest of the bottle when the kids have gone to bed.

My very basic one, which the kids go mad about is, do the sausages on the george foreman, when cooked put on the bottom of a casserole dish, put some mushrooms on and then put some potato on the top and pour on gravy and wang in the oven till tatties are cooked.

The tatties are soft underneath and have soaked up the gravy and are crispy on top like roast tatties, yum.

We are having sausage casserole tonight. I would have cooked a proper meal, but have wasted the whole day here being a sleuth.

It's going to be Sausages Tonight, I'm afraid. And mash, if I can get one of my slaves to peel the spuds.

amynnixmum Fri 07-Jan-05 16:39:25

Same here Skeptic except that we're having pizza. My computers been on all day!

For "posh" sausage casserole go to Deliaonline.co.uk - she has a great recipe called braised sausages in red wine - gorgeous and suitable for Sunday lunch or dinner party with mash and braised red cabbage!

PuffTheMagicDragon Fri 07-Jan-05 17:05:26

Yummm.

Thanks for all these - my mouth is watering.

GeorginaA Fri 07-Jan-05 17:05:32

Puff - you got a slow cooker?

PuffTheMagicDragon Fri 07-Jan-05 17:06:34

No, I keep wondering whether to buy one - do you use yours a lot Georgina?

moondog Fri 07-Jan-05 17:08:54

Oooh Puff, you don't want to be eating sausages.
You know what's in them don't you? Ears and arseholes. Sorry, but it's true.

GeorginaA Fri 07-Jan-05 17:10:03

At least once a week. I'll post my slow cooked recipe anyway just for the hell of it

Ingredients
1lb sausages
1 medium onion, diced
2 large carrots, chopped
3 large potatoes, cut into pieces
1 leek, sliced
150g baby mushrooms
1 red pepper, sliced
half a pint of pork stock
squirt of tomato puree
cornflour to thicken
Method
1. Brown the sausages for ten minutes in a frying pan

2. Place all the ingredients into the slow cooker, except the cornflour.

3. Cook in the slow cooker for 6-8 hours on low.

4. When ready to serve, mix a couple of tablespoons of cornflour with some water in a cup, then pour the resulting mixture into the casserole. Simmer on stove until sauce is required thickness

Serves: 3-4 depending on appetite.

I'm very tempted by this at lovely Lakeland It's a slow cooker, rice cooker and steamer in one. Been tempted to get a slow cooker for ages and my bf has a rice cooker and says she wouldn't be without it.

PuffTheMagicDragon Fri 07-Jan-05 17:11:20

Moondog . Nice to see you back.

I'm partial to the odd ear or arsehole as long as they're organic and from my lovely butcher round the corner.

frogs Fri 07-Jan-05 17:11:43

Mine starts off the same as hc , except minus the flour and the marmite. Marmite?! What's that about?

At the frying onions and garlic stage, you can add in a little (a knife tip) of chilli flakes, available from ethnic supermarkets. I then fry up any other vegetables that are going in (leeks, carrots, courgettes, anything), and then fry the sausages too for a minute (chopped up or whole).

Add tomatoes, red wine, or any other stock that needs to be used up, a dash of worcester sauce and a spoonful or two of English mustard. And a bayleaf.

Bake in oven on lowish heat (150+, depending on how much of a hurry you're in) for between 40 minutes to an hour, depending on the temperature.

Serve with mash, obviously...

moondog Fri 07-Jan-05 17:13:00

Well yes....AND providing that the pigs in question were breastfed as piglets
Happy New Year!!

PuffTheMagicDragon Fri 07-Jan-05 17:13:28

That sounds GOOD Georgina.

I'm tempted too marthamoo. Might use it more than the giant George Foreman that's gathering dust at the mo .

marthamoo Fri 07-Jan-05 17:13:57

You can get chilli flakes from non-ethnic supermarkets too - Tesco do 'em Treat with caution though - they are hot, hot, hot!

PuffTheMagicDragon Fri 07-Jan-05 17:14:03

lol moondog .

hoxtonchick Fri 07-Jan-05 17:14:22

sorry frogs, have i scared you ? it was my mum's recipe from when we were kids so i have happy memories of it. tempted by yours now though. guess what we're going to eat tonight?

karenanne Fri 07-Jan-05 17:14:31

another easy basic one here .
brown a pack of sausages in a pan chop into 2' chunks transfer to a ovenproof dish add a few rashers of crispy bacon cut into pieces and some fried onions.add a few splashes of worcester sauce and 2 cans of own brand baked beans.
just pop on low in the oven till cooked.
we absolutley love this ,esp my dd ,its cheap and really nice with some chunky fried potatoes.

marthamoo Fri 07-Jan-05 17:14:54

I gave my George Foreman away - was a Christmas pressie and I never saw the point of it. What's wrong with the grill?
