Easy Sausage Casserole in the Oven
This recipe for sausage casserole in the oven is another versatile or flexible recipe that you can use as a guideline. It is a great way to use up vegetables in the fridge that need finishing off.
Do not be put off by the length of the ingredient list. This one is long, as it contains what I needed to finish up when I made the recipe shown in these photos.
You can easily exchange the green beans, paprika and mushrooms with other vegetables of your choice. Think of carrots, potatoes, haricot beans, sugar snaps etc.
The sausages are really the highlight of the dish as they define the taste. When I made this dish, which is effectively a sausage stew, I just used what I had in the fridge.
But plain pork sausages, venison sausages or even some Italian sausage would be perfectly fine. What a pity that Kennedy’s are no longer with us 😢
I have used my trusty Le Creuset casserole to cook this. Alternatively, you could put this all in a slow cooker or a crockpot to finish off.
We do not yet have a slow cooker, so have not tried it this way, but I am sure it would be great.
Alternatively, try my Instant Pot sausage casserole version of this meal perhaps?
Do you cook the sausages before putting in casserole?
As described in this recipe, I tend to brown the sausages before cooking them in the casserole. Just because it makes them look a bit better – but in reality you do not need to as they will cook fine in the casserole.
The number and size of the sausages, and what you serve with it, is what really determines how many people you can feed with this dish.
We had four meals out of the portions of the ingredients shown below. And we did not serve up with any side dishes.
Perhaps you may want to serve up with some mashed potatoes or mashed parsnips for example? Or just throw some peeled potatoes in the pot.
You may find that the sauce is too runny for your liking when it is finished. If so, you can always thicken it up by adding some cornflour and water mixed together.
Here is one I made with just sweetcorn, potatoes, tomatoes and haricot beans:
