Baked sausages in grainy mustard

Baked sausages in grainy mustard


The end product!

The end product!

Christmas has come to an end, we entered the New Year with gusto and what were we confronted with is rain, rain, rain and more raaaaaaaaaaaain! Followed by blizzard – fences knocked down, roof tiles blown off, houses flooded and the fields saturated. Thank God, none of these affected me but I feel for those whose houses were knee deep in water, especially at this time of year.

To take your mind off this drastic weather we are having, I’ve come up with my idea of comforting food to warm your cockles, which I hope you will all enjoy.


Heat oven: 180c/Gas 4

8 good quality sausages

1 big sweet green pepper, deseed and cubed (reserve some for garnishing)

2 garlic cloves

1 large red onion or white onion, peelled and chopped

2 tbsp olive oil

1tbsp grainy mustard

300g cup mushrooms, washed and cut in half

8 streaky bacon and chopped

4 big tomatoes, skinned and chopped

2tsp tomato puree

2tsp paprika pepper (to give it a bit of oomph!!)

1tsp brown sugar

1 chicken or beef st0ck cube dissolved into 250ml warm water

100g Romaine lettuce

Heat oil and fry, onions, garlic and bacon on low heat. In the meanwhile grill the sausages until brown on  all sides then set aside. Add to the bacon mixture, the chopped tomatoes, mushrooms and peppers and simmer for a further 5mins. Add the stock, mustard sugar and paprika pepper cook for a couple of minutes then add the sausages. Empty the contents in a spacious overproof casserole dish and bake in the oven for 15mins.  Five minutes to the final cooking time, add the green pepper and lettuce. Stir and check seasoning.

Serve with creamy mashed potatoes.

There you have it and enjoy!!
