Sausage Casserole

This is an adaptation of the Hairy Bikers recipe on the BBC website, good for comfort food, or a lazy way to make Xander a new kind of lunch.

  • 12 good quality sausages
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped frozen onion
  • 1 tsp chopped garlic (equal to 1 clove garlic)
  • 1 packet of diced pancetta (or about six slices of smoked bacon)
  • 1/2- 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 can chopped tomatoes
  • 1 can baked beans
  • 1 tsp mixed herbs
  • 1 tbsp Worcester sauce
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • Dash of thyme
  • Splash of balsamic vinegar
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
Put the tomato, beans, Worcester sauce, sugar and herbs in the slow cooker dish.
Brown the sausages for about ten minutes on a medium heat, add to the dish.
On the same pan, cook the pancetta or bacon, add to the mix.
Soften the onion, add the garlic, when the onions start to brown, add the paprika, cook for a few seconds more before adding to the dish.
Add salt and pepper to taste
Add a splash of balsamic vinegar, put the lid on and leave for 3-4 hours (high) or 8-10 hours (low) or until the sausages are cooked throughout.

Since this is a lunch thing for Xander, I tend to chop up the sausages before portioning, but it's not mandatory of course.
