Sausage and vegetable bake

Hunting around for ideas for tea the other night revealed that I had some Spanish style sausage meat left over from the meatballs I made earlier in the week, celery, carrots and  some potatoes busily spurting in the bag. Those potatoes really need using up! So I decided to make a layered bake.

You could replace the Spanish style sausage with any other meat that takes your fancy or you could just leave it out and maybe add a few peppers into the mix for a veggie treat.

1 onion, finely chopped
2 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
3 sticks of celery, sliced
3 carrots, peeled and sliced
250g sausage meat
3 large potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced
a few sprigs of thyme
600ml stock ( I used vegetable)
salt and pepper
butter

Method

Butter a shallow baking dish well.  Cover the bottom of the dish with a layer of potatoes. Layer the onions, garlic, celery and carrots and sprinkle with salt and pepper and the thyme.  Break the sausage meat into chunks and place on top. Season again lightly.  Add the final layer of potatoes.  Pour over the stock and then season again lightly. Place small chunks of butter on top.

Cover the dish with foil and bake in a preheated oven at 180°c, gas mark 4 for about 1 hour, until all is tender.  Take off the foil and cook for a further 20 minutes until the top is brown and crispy.

  1. Great to see you make something lovely out of what needs using up.

  2. A great all in one meal – nice and comforting.

  3. a good meal out of less than appetising looking sprouting potatoes plus bits and pieces. Definitely a recipe to keep – unfortunately I’ve just dealt with all my sprouting potatoes this morning. But the recipe is now in my ideas folder.

  4. Looks scrummy – my lot always love those meals I make from odds and ends and left-overs.

  5. my sprouting potatoes? – very boring but I was short of time. I peeled, chopped and boiled them till soft and shoved them in the freezer mixed with some left over fried onions. I’ll think of something later. Soup? a vegetable type bake? veg cakes?

  6. MMMMMM,…I love easy to make yet so well flavoured dishes to make like this one…!!!! Yum!!
