Woman's Weekly recipe A creamy sausage and mushroom filling served with a crunchy, buttery crumble comes to under 1 a portion.


  • 4 thick sausages, eg, Cumberland
  • 2tbsp sunflower oil
  • 1 medium onion, peeled and chopped
  • 125g (4oz) button mushrooms, quartered
  • 295g can condensed cream of mushroom soup
  • 100ml (3fl oz) milk

For the topping:

  • 75g (2oz) self-raising flour
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 50g (1oz) butter, cubed

Woman's Weekly cookery editor Sue McMahon says: ' We found that frozen sausages were good value (we used Cumberland for a good, spicy flavour). Just be sure to let them defrost thoroughly before use.'


  1. Set the oven to 200C or gas mark 6.
  2. Skin the sausages and cut each one into 3-4 pieces, and shape the portions into small balls.
  3. Heat the oil in a pan. Add the onion and cook over a medium heat for 4-5 minutes, until the onion starts to soften. Add the balls of sausagemeat to the pan and cook for a further 4-5 mins, turning them occasionally until they start to brown. Add the quartered mushrooms to the pan and cook for a further 3-4 mins. Pour in the soup and milk, and stir to break down the soup as it may be very thick. Bring the mixture to a simmer and then cook for 2-3 mins.
  4. Meanwhile, for the topping: Tip the flour into a bowl and season it well. Rub in the butter until the mixture starts to bind together and forms a crumble texture.
  5. Divide the sausage-and-mushroom mixture between the ovenproof dishes. Scatter crumble topping over it. Put the dishes on a baking tray and place in the centre of the oven to bake for 25-30 mins, or until the topping is a lightgolden colour. Remove from the oven and serve immediately.
