Bonfire Casserole

For this not-very-photogenic sausage casserole I stuck to the recipe, just halving the quantities and adding a couple of turnips that I had lying in the veg drawer. After all, sausage, apples, potatoes and 3 kinds of mustard in a creamy sauce is just about as good as cold weather food gets, isn't it?

It was seriously delicious. The Bramleys disappear into it completely to thicken the sauce and add a bit of sharpness, so if you have a family who doesn't like fruit with meat, don't tell them and they won't know. Lovely. And re-heated very well, so it's quite a good one to make in advance when you know you won't have much time and will want something tasty to come home to.

I had to look up bramleys. i like the idea of three kinds of mustard--probably very complex.

I'm pleased you liked this recipe - I still have doubts about sausages in a creamy sauce. :-)

MM - it was, they all added something different!

George - cool and rainy here too!

Suelle - the apple makes it less creamy, but I think you could probably leave out the cream and just have a mustardy broth.

That looks seriously good, I love sausage casserole especially in the winter. Great recipe!

Natashya - definitely worth trying, if you want something really comforting!

Sam - it's rare for me to do one without tomatoes and beans, but this was good!
