Foodie Friday #008 – Sausage & Leek Casserole

Recipes: Sausage and Leek Casserole a la Slow Cooker

I recently bought a slow cooker thinking it would be an easy way to have food on the table when I get home. I bought it for £14 from Asda and on Sunday I decided to give it a go! Here’s the result!

Sausage and Leek Casserole

Ingredients

Processed with Moldiv

– 6 sausages (pork)
– 1 onion
– 4 leeks (approx 230g)
– handful of mushrooms
– new potatoes (however many you want)
– vegetable stock cube (500ml)

Method

1) Chop up the onion, mushrooms and leeks.
2) Cut up the sausages into mini bit size chunks
3) Brown your sausages in a frying pan and some sunflower oil. Put to one side but keep the oil in the pan
4) In the oil, soften the onions until they are golden brown – be careful not to fry!

5) Measure up 500ml of boiling water and add in your stock cube
6) Add everything in to the slow cooker and put on a high heat* for 3 hours

7) Peel your potatoes and chop ready for cooking
8) When the slow cooker has been on for 2.5 hours start on your potatoes. Boil them until soft and then either mash them or serve as they are.

Serve up and enjoy!!

Comments

* Our slow cooker heats at two setting – low which is about °C and at high which is about °C

You can add any other vegetables if you wish but unfortunately we didn’t have anything else! A sprig of brocoli would have been nice.

I also didn’t chop my mushrooms but depending on their size, might be worth halving them

This was enough for me, hubby and Little Miss – so 2.5 portions.

      I’ve not experimented much yet I must admit. I need to try a few different recipes but this one was a success!

      It was yum! The only thing I can’t quite get right is the thickness of the sauce.
