How To Make Easy Sausage Casserole

  1. Heat the oven – preheat the oven to 180C / 350F / Gas Mark 4 – grab our handy oven temperature conversion chart printable here.
  2. Brown the sausages – brown the pork sausages in a pan – you shouldn’t need to add any oil, but if you do need a little, add a splash of olive oil. You do need to brown the sausages for casserole, don’t skip this step, they look a whole lot more appetising browned!
  3. Add the vegetables – throw in the chopped onions, celery and carrots.

  2. Cook in the oven – put the easy sausage casserole into the oven and cook for 1 hour 30 minutes. When it’s cooked thoroughly remove the sausage stew from the oven – if the gravy needs thickening do this with a couple of tsp of cornflour mixed into a paste with cold water and then stirred through the gravy to thicken.

TOP TIPS FOR MAKING Sausage Casserole
