potatoes were really hard and its upset not just me but all of the kids one of my dear kids chocked, its not good to eat raw pots, its just not on!!!!!! your idea of 5 minutes is rubbish!!!!!!! if anyone follows this recipe please cook the pots for longer for the sake of our future xxxxxxxxxx

I needed a lot more cooking time as the potatoes were still hard and you need an extremely big frying pan. Perhaps part boil the potatoes whilst preparing the other ingredients may solve this problem


This is a stupid recipe. The potatoes were so undercooked I had to take them out and boil them for 20 mins. This is a problem when you have screaming kids following you round the kitchen desperate for their tea. Trying to cook the sausages with the potatoes is difficult. The potatoes needed blasting to give them any hope of cooking, but this burns the sausages. I will rework this to my own satisfaction. Taste B+ Method E-


Could I use bolognese sauce?


surely you dont need oil there is fat in the sausages


can you use tomato soup


I love this site. I agree with some of the comments in that some of the recipes need a little "dressing up", but they are always ALWAYS a good base from which to start - you can amend/adapt to your own tastes as required. I've cooked loads of recipes and this one is on the go as we speak (albeit with a few tweaks of my own lol) - never stuck now for inspiration, this is my "Go To" site for inspiration :)

Did as recommended, baked potatoes in the oven for 30 minutes with thyme and rosemary and a splash of oil. Also added cherry tomatoes. Sausages took about 20 minutes in the pan, I halved them so they would cook faster. Nice mid-week meal.

Very delicious and not a lot of dishes! I would agree with Georgina in that I cooked mine in a cast iron pop instead of a pan and put it in the oven for 30 minutes as the sausages weren't cooked. I would also suggest part boiling the potatoes first as they weren't cooked either.

I added a tin of chopped tomatoes and a tin of baked beans x yummy x

Georgina Dobermann

I baked it in the oven for 30 minutes as I did not feel the sausages were cooked x went down well x my other half and son loved it xxxx

Must have been small potaotes my halves did not cook and I had to hike them out and boil them. Using pasta sauce a good idea for future. Changed veg to suit what I had


This will become a family favorite tasted lovely.


thiis iis a really good quiick and easy reciipe!! iits really deliiciiouse 2!!


I exchanged the jar of sauce for a tin of tomatoes and added fajita seasoning (packet mix which we always have a bit left over from making fajitas) - yummy!


made this with jalfreizi for a different twist and had naan bread.......loved it.


I had some sausages leftover in the fridge and grudgingly made this as I normally hate anything sausagey but the men in the house love them, and waste not want not. Even I loved this, I added paprika just before I added the tomato sauce to give it depth. Would work really well with chicken I think too. Nice one pot meal, a real keeper for us and nicest sausage casserole I have had.
