    Oven-Baked Sausage and Bean Pot

    A sausage hotpot makes a great autumn supper and this tastes even better when made the day before - just reheat it ready to serve when everyone comes in from the cold.

    • Preparation time: 15 minutes
    • Cooking time: 55 minutes to 60 minutes
    • Total time: 1 hour 15 minutes 60 minutes 15 minutes

    Serves: 8


    • 3 x 400g packs Waitrose Pork, Herb and Garlic Sausages (about 18 sausages)
    • 1-2 tbsp Waitrose Sunflower or Corn Oil
    • 6 red onions, finely chopped
    • 600ml chicken or vegetable stock
    • 2 x 350g pots Waitrose Fresh Arrabbiata Sauce
    • 500ml bottle Guinness Original
    • 6 tbsp light soft brown sugar
    • 4 x 410g tins Waitrose Mixed Bean Salad, drained and rinsed in cold water
    • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
    • 1 bunch fresh flat leaf parsley, finely chopped, to garnish


    1. Preheat the oven to 200°C, gas mark 6 and also the grill to its highest setting. Brown the sausages under the grill for 8-10 minutes, turning occasionally.
    2. Heat the oil in a very large flameproof casserole dish dish and fry the onions for about 10 minutes, or until soft and golden brown. At this stage it will look as though you have too many onions, but they do reduce down with cooking.
    3. Pour in the stock, arrabbiata sauce, Guinness and brown sugar. Bring to the boil. Let the mixture bubble for 2 minutes, then stir the beans and the sausages into the casserole and bake in the oven for 35-40 minutes until everything is bubbling and lightly browned on top. The sausages should be thoroughly cooked - prick them to make sure the juices run clear and that there is no pink meat. The liquid should have reduced to barely cover the beans, but the exact cooking time depends on the size of dish. If the liquid has not reduced enough, then pop the casserole onto the hob and allow to bubble for 2-3 minutes to evaporate a little more of the liquid.
    4. Stir the casserole, taste and season if necessary, then scatter with parsley and serve.

    Cook's tips

    If you prefer, try Waitrose Free Range Pork Chipolatas in place of the Pork, Herb and Garlic Sausages. Boned chicken thighs are also delicious cooked this way.
