How To Make Sausage Hotpot

Our sausage hotpot recipe is super easy to make and as it’s a one pot dinner, there’s less mess and less washing up!

Step 1 switch on the oven

  • Preheat the oven to 180C / 160C fan / 350F / Gas Mark 4

Step 2 – brown the sausages

Step 4 – add the sliced potato hotpot topping

  • Next you need to arrange the sliced potatoes on top of your sausage and butterbean casserole. Try not to overlap them too much as you want them to cook evenly and crisp up.

  • Once the top of the sausage hotpot is covered in potato slices, brush them with the olive oil, this will help them to brown in the oven.

Step 5 – bake the sausage hotpot in the oven

  • Put the lid onto the sausage hotpot and bake in the oven for 40 minutes.
  • After 40 minutes, remove the sausage hot pot from the oven and take off the casserole pan lid. Then return to the oven for a further 40-45 minutes cooking time or until the hotpot casserole is thickened and the potato topping browning nicely.
