The weather's been pretty chilly of late, so here's a proper winter warmer for you all to enjoy!
This week's budget recipe: Claire's sausage hotpot
Claire, from our Communications team says, 'This is a budget favourite for me and my husband! Cut costs by buying tins and onions from the 'value' ranges, and leave more in your budget to buy better quality sausages if you can. It's really filling on its own, or you can bulk it up by serving with pasta, rice or bread. Enjoy!'
Preparation time: 5 mins, cooking time: 30 mins, serves 4.
Total cost = approx £3.32* (not including optional rice/pasta/bread)
8 pork sausages (or veggie sausages)
2 tins baked beans
2 tins chopped tomatoes
1 400g tin kidney beans
2 onions, chopped
1 tbsp mixed herbs
Heat the oil in a large pan.
Fry the onions until soft, then add the sausages and fry gently until browned. Keep stirring so the onions don't burn.
Add the baked beans, chopped tomatoes, kidney beans and mixed herbs.
Stir well and season to taste with the black pepper.
Bring to the boil, then turn down the heat and simmer gently for 5-10mins to thicken the sauce a little.
Cover the pan and simmer for 15-20mins or until the sausages are thoroughly cooked, stirring regularly.
