It’s been a little while since I last posted, so I decided to come back with another classic type of post… A recipe. This recipe is called a “Cowboy Casserole” by my two boys, but others may call it a simple sausage casserole. It’s super simple to prepare, and makes for a filling and beautiful belly-warmer of a meal – especially now that it’s starting to get colder!
This whole recipe cost me £3.50 to make, and easily serves 4 or 5 people, meaning each serving is between 70p and 87p. What a cracker!
16 sausages (I bought a double pack of Richmond’s)
1 tin of peeled, plum tomatoes (I used Asda’s own)
2 tins of beans (I used Asda’s own)
1tsp dried chilli flakes
Splash of oil (for frying)
- Add a splash of oil to a frying pan, and part-fry the sausages. I managed to fit 8 sausages in my pan, so this took me two “goes”. Once the sausages are almost cooked, and are a browny colour, transfer them on to some kitchen roll to remove any excess grease from the pan.
- Chop each sausage in to a “mouthful” sized piece. I cut each sausage in to four.
- Leave the cut sausages on your chopping board, and add two tins of baked beans in tomato sauce, the tin of peeled, plum tomatoes, the chilli flakes and paprika to your slow cooker. Add the sausages, and stir the mixture with a large spoon until all the sausages have been coated.
- Set your slow cooker to “HIGH”, and set the timer for 5 hours. Don’t forget to put the lid on the slow cooker.
- You can serve your Cowboy Casserole on its’ own, or (my recommendation) mashed potatoes.
