Last week we put together a family dinner deal for €30 - Today I'm going to share a recipe for the sausages - you don't just have a fry up with them! I cooked this last week and it was a big hit. It's a revision of another sausage casserole I've shared before but this one is easier and less wintry. I'll share a recipe for the rashers and pudding later in week - It make it stretch. ?

  • 1lb of round steak mince
  • 1 large chicken
  • 1 packet of sausages, 300g pack of rashers and 1 packet of pudding
  • 1 kg of back bacon joint
  • 4 large chicken fillets

I hope you're all doing OK? Nothing profound to say but I do just love Sean Corcorans @thearthand sand art. Isn't it just amazing? This too shall pass.

But while we're waiting I do what our family have always done. Food. Food is such a comfort at this time. In this house, because himself is not home until about 8;30 we're not having dinner until that time. In our previous existence dinner was at all different times and rarely together. Before training, after piano, after homework etc... It was something we squeezed in between the rushing and the racing. So I'm grateful for the time to eat together. But I'm also aware that our front line workers may not have this luxury. This one might suit you. Its a slow cooker one and its quick and easy and everyone will love it - young and old.

Hope you enjoy it.


Prep Time: 5-10 mins
Cook Time: 4 hours in slow cooker(high)/ 8-10 hours (low)

If you don't possess a slow cooker use a casserole dish and pop into the oven at 180 for a couple of hours - just keep an eye that it's not drying out.

Serves: 4-6
• 1 tbsp olive oil
• 12 good quality sausages (Molloys obvs.)
• 2 carrots,roughly chopped
• 1 large onion, roughly chopped
• 1.5 litres beef stock
• 1 tin of tomatoes
• 2 tbsp tomato puree
• 6 sprigs fresh thyme/tbsp. of dried
• 3 large sprigs of fresh rosemary/tbsp of dried
1. Heat the oil in a pan on medium heat.
2. Add the sausages and cook until lightly brown on all sides.
3. Remove the sausage from the pan and chop into bite sized pieces.
4. Place all the ingredients into the slow cooker
5. Turn it on to high and cook for 4 hours/or low for 8-10 hours

6. I suggest serving this with mashed potatoes

You could always do it overnight
