MR: This sausage hotpot is based off the one my Mum made when I was a kid and it’s perfect with a baked potato. That said, she used to use Heinz baked beans instead of white beans. Sharlee doesn’t like using the microwave (something about the radiation) but I ... well, baked potatoes take a long time to cook and following the method below will more than halve your cooking time. Just don’t tell Sharlee I told you.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
2 tablespoons non-gmo vegetable oil
5 pork or beef sausages, each cut into four even-sized pieces
1 celery stalk
1 carrots, diced
1 white onion, diced
2 tablespoons tomato paste (concentrated purée)
2 tablespoons worcestershire sauce
1 x 400g tin cannellini (lima) beans or butterbeans, drained

Baked potatoes

Quantity Ingredient
4 medium-large potatoes
butter, to serve
100g cheddar, grated

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 220°C. Heat the oil in a large saucepan over a high heat, add the sausages and brown all over, then remove the sausages from the pan. Lower the heat to medium, add the vegetables to the pan and cook for 3–4 minutes until softened. Stir in the tomato paste and cook for a further 2–3 minutes, then add the sausage pieces, 200 ml water, worcestershire sauce and beans and bring to the boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook for 12–15 minutes, until the sausages are cooked through and the sauce is nice and thick.

    Meanwhile, bake the potatoes. Prick the potatoes all over with a fork, then transfer to a microwave and cook on high for 8 minutes. Remove from the microwave, transfer to the oven and cook for a further 8 minutes. Alternatively, cook in the oven only for 35–45 minutes).

    To serve, cut open the baked potatoes and add butter, then spoon over the hotpot and scatter over the cheddar to finish.
