Sausage Surprise


I have to admit I have 'borrowed' this recipe from my husband! He started cooking this for me when we first got together, he used to put it in the slow cooker in the morning and leave it to do it's thing all day - it was better than him spending ages at the cooker!!! I have modified it slightly as we no longer have a slow cooker, but it is still just as tasty!

Step 1

Heat the oil in a large saucepan over a medium heat and cook the onion for 5 minutes until soft.

Step 2

Add the potato, beans, 1/2 the bean tin of water and the sausages, stir everything together.

Step 3

Add a good pinch of salt and approx 1/2 tbsp of white pepper.

Step 4

Cover and simmer on the lowest heat possible for at least 2 hours, the longer the better! Stir occasionally to prevent sticking.


It sounds like a lot of white pepper, but it really does make a huge difference to the end result. Black pepper really doesn't do anything for this dish, it has to be white pepper!
You can serve this on it's own or with crusty bread to scoop up the beans and sausage pieces!
