FODMAP Spicy Sausage Casserole

In our house we love sausages. sausage sandwiches, sausage and mash, sausages with pasta and sausage casseroles. Both JM & I regularly make sausage casseroles but to our own recipes. so below you’ll find mine. Another perfect on a chilly day, or a cooking for loads of people and want something really tasty but don’t want to do anything too difficult dish.

The first hurdle was finding sausages with no rusk, wheat or gluten in them. I was delighted when after reading many, many packets of sausages that ALL of The Cooperative’s truly irresistible range were gluten-free! It even said it nice and clearly on the front! BUT THEN today i popped in to pick up some sausages and where the no gluten symbol was previously was the text “allergen update” guess what? they’ve added gluten back into some of their sausages! why coop? why?? So now you have to double check!

Thankfully the Black Farmer and Black Farmers daughter still do Gluten-free sausages that are really tasty, and you can get thick sausages and chipolatas so a bit of variety (I have heard rumours of pork & apple ones too, which if I ever found, and could eat apples I would be all over!).

Ingredients

1 x bunch Spring Onions (green part only)

10 x good gluten free sausages

2 x peppers

1 x courgette

1 x tin tomatoes

1 x chilli

1 tsp x paprika
Salt and pepper to taste

Method

This is another easy peasy recipe, which I do one of two ways:

  1. Slow Cooker
  • place sausages and veg in the slow cooker, cover with the remaining ingredients and leave to cook overnight or throughout the day on low while you are at work. Don’t do as I did when first using a slow cooker and add more liquid – none of it reallly evaporates, so if you are not careful you end up with a sausage soup (at one point I was eating “chili soup” for weeks after making this mistake!)

2. Oven

  • Personally I prefer the oven version as you get a chance to brown the sausages first (which you could do prior to adding to the slow cooker, but I am not a fan of making more washing up than necessary….)
  • Place sausages in an oven proof dish (I actually use the one from my slow cooker for this) and pop in the oven at 200 for approx 20 mins until sausages are starting to brown.
  • Once sausages start to brown add the rest of the ingredients, turn the oven down to 180 and cook for a minimum of 40min, I tend to leave it bubbling away for as long as possible

Serving suggestion

Ideally with some creamy mashed potato, or a baked potato, truly comfort food. If you are doing baked potatoes, stab them, cover with a little oil and salt and pepper and pop them in the oven at the same time as the sausages to brown, an hour an a half to two hours later you’ll have some deliciously crispy potatoes, like these bad boys!
