Serves 4

Ready in 1 hour


  • 50g butter
  • 1 large onion, sliced
  • 1 tbsp demerara sugar
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 1 tbsp tomato purée
  • 450ml beef stock or chicken stock, hot
  • Splash of Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 large potatoes, cut into 2cm cubes
  • 8 good-quality sausages (any kind), grilled
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh flatleaf parsley


How to make quick sausage casserole

1. Heat the butter in a large, deep saucepan over a low heat. Add the sliced onion and fry gently for about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the onion is soft and beginning to caramelise.

2. Add the sugar to the pan, increase the heat to medium-high and cook, stirring occasionally, for another 3 minutes, until the onions are fully caramelised.

3. Reduce the heat to low again, add the garlic and tomato purée to the pan and cook for another 5 minutes. Add the stock and Worcestershire sauce, bring to the boil, and simmer for 5 minutes.

4. Add the spuds and cook for 15 minutes, until soft. Add the cooked bangers - I tend to cut mine into 4 bits, but feel free to leave them whole or chop them up small. Cook for about 5 minutes, until the sausages are piping hot throughout.

5. Sprinkle with parsley and serve with lots of yummy greens.
