great many of the recipes do not have any details as

is one I do for my own family . . . real comfort food.
recipe for Sausage Casserole has not been published
up until now as I seem to find so little time for the
writing up of my own recipes. Any recipe like this is
only a guide and the ingredients and quantities can

most indispensable ingredient of all good home cooking
- love, for those you are cooking for" ~ Sophia
This is a nice simple recipe, which I do in a large
stovetop pot. It is far quicker to cook than a meat
casserole, which needs a longer cooking time to tenderise
the meat. You can vary the ingredients to suit your
likes and dislikes. I hate carrots but you might want
to add some carrots or other root vegetable.
for Sausage Casserole
12 Beef sausage
2 medium Leeks
3 beef stock cubes (I use Knorr)
1 tbsp Balsamic vinegar (optional)
1 lt water (or do half water and half red wine)
Oil to fry onions and leeks
200g tin Baked beans
Drop of gravy browning
to make Sausage Casserole
cook the sausages under the grill or in a frying pan
to brown them. No need to cook completely - just enough
to make them look appetising.
the sausages are cooking peel and thinly slice your
onion. Sauté onion in large pot with enough
oil to cover base of pot (Rapeseed oil is very good).
Top, tail and peel and thinly slice your leeks while
the onion is cooking. When onion is starting to soften
add Balsamic vinegar and leeks to pot and cook for
two or three minutes more.
Add your water or water and red wine to the pan and
bring to the boil.

Add sausages, cover and simmer for about 1½
to 2 hours.
Add a small amount of extra liquid if getting too
