 I just love sausages but I am always careful to buy the better quality ones. This is based on a recipe from Waitrose is very simple to put together and is ideal for anyone on the move in their motor home. I have used pork sausages in this recipe but you can use what ever type you like. The potatoes should be small and there is no need to do anything but wash them and if they are a little large cut them in half.

When I am making a casserole such as this I prefer to roughly chop the onions leaving them not to small. Frozen peas are perfect unless you are making when it is possible to buy fresh. You could use other vegetables if you liked such as beans or carrots. The choice is yours.

  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 1 large onion, sliced
