Sausage Casserole With Potato Wedges

The turkey has long since disappeared and as they say, a change is as good as a rest. If like me you splurged over the festive period, then I dare say something good for you is required. This is quick to prepare, a modest meal that is both economical and satisfying. The mixed beans are very nutritious and the sausages, well they are just plain tasty. This is a no pressure warming meal (not too spicy), leaving you free to spend time with loved ones.

Serves 4-6

6 Medium potatoes, cut into wedges
5tbsp oil
1 Onion, roughly chopped
2 Celery sticks, roughly chopped
8 Sausages
1 x 400g can chilli beans
1 x 400g can mixed beans
1 x 400g can tomatoes (optional)
150ml Vegetable stock
6tbsp Sour cream

Preheat the oven to 220C/425F/Gas mark 7.

Place the wedges in a bowl and toss in half of the oil. Lay on a baking tray and bake for 30-35 minutes. Turning half way through.

I cover the wedges for the the first 5 minutes with tin foil, this steams the potatoes and leaves the insides fluffy while the outside is crisp.

Meanwhile, brown the sausages in a large casserole or large saucepan until golden brown. Add the onion and celery, fry until the soft, stirring all the time.

Add the chilli beans, mixed beans and vegetable stock and simmer for 15-20 minutes.

 Pour the casserole in bowls, drizzle with sour cream and serve immediately alongside potato wedges.
