Smokey sausage and bean casserole is loved by all here and great simply served with jacket potatoes and grated cheese and perfectly filling and warming for bonfire night if you are having fireworks. This is perfect winter food but quick and easy too!!! Always popular when the children have friends around and easily double if you are feeding a crowd and it won’t break the bank even if you are using good sausages.
So for this smoking recipe you will need to serve 4 hungry people:
- 6-8 sausages
- 2 tins of baked beans
- 500g Passata
- 2 medium onions roughly chopped
- 2-3 cloves of garlic chopped
- 1-2 teaspoons of chilli powder (optional but a must if you like it spicy)
- 1-2 teaspoons of smoked paprika
- 1 teaspoon of sugar
- A good grind of black pepper
- A little oil
You need to:
Cut the sausages up into 8 pieces. I use scissors for this, much easier.
Heat the oil in a large saucepan or large frying pan and cook the sausages for about 8 minutes or until cooked.
Put cooked sausages in a bowl while you get on a cooked your onions.
Lightly fry the onions until turning golden brown, now add garlic cook for a further minute. Add the chilli powder,pepper and the smoked paprika and cook for another minute.
Enjoy the smell, return the sausages to the pan and add baked beans, passata and sugar and simmer for 15 minutes.
Simply serve with Jacket potatoes and grated cheese. Also good with mash!!!
Make it veggie, either use veggie sausages cook as per instructions or add sliced mushrooms and peppers with the onions. Swap one of the tins of baked beans for a tin of kidney beans and you have a yummy smokey bean casserole.
