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:

This sausage casserole is a delicious way of using up vegetables that need to be finished up. You can spice it up with chillis if you want to warm things up a bit.


  • 6 smoked garlic and basil sausages (but you could really choose any of your favourite sausages)
  • 6 streaky bacon rashers
  • Olive oil
  • 6 scallions, chopped
  • Salt & pepper
  • 1 tin chopped tomatoes
  • 1 tin red kidney beans (or if you do not have, use butter beans or something similar)
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely sliced
  • 1 large onion
  • 300ml chicken stock
  • Sprig of fresh rosemary
  • ½ yellow paprika, finely chopped
  • 5 button mushrooms, chopped
  • 4 fresh vine tomatoes, halved
  • 100g fine green beans
  • 1 tsp Smoked paprika powder
  • Handful of chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 Bay leaves
  • 1 tbsp tomato puree
  • 1 tsp mixed herbs
  • 100ml white or red wine (optional)
  • 1 sprig of Rosemary - leaves chopped


  1. Start by frying the bacon until crisp. Remove from pan onto plate and discard any fat from the pan. When bacon has cooled then cut into 1cm pieces and add to casserole dish.
  2. Then slowly fry the sausage for about 5 minutes until browned (it does not need to be fully cooked yet). Remove sausages from pan and put into the casserole dish.
  3. Fry the garlic, onions, scallions and paprika together for 2 minutes. Then add the paprika powder and cook for a further minute. Then add to the casserole dish.
  4. Rinse the red kidney beans under cold water and add to casserole together with the tin of tomatoes.
  5. Then add the remaining ingredients and the chicken stock to the casserole dish, and give it all a good stir. Keep covered in the fridge until ready to cook.
  6. When you are ready to cook, put the covered casserole in a pre-heated oven and cook at 160C for 50 minutes.
  7. If you wish to spice it up a bit add some red chillis or chilli powder before cooking.


Serve up with some nice mashed potatoes to soak up the yummy sauce, or add some potatoes to the pot to make it even easier.
