Sausage and potato one pot
Skill level: Easy peasy
Costs: Cheap as chips
This really is a throw it all in the pan recipe – it takes just minutes to prepare, you can use any combination of vegetables you like and any flavour sausages. This recipe has stock added so that you have gravy to go with it but if you like a drier dish just omit the stock. The chestnut mushrooms retain their shape very well and have a lovely meaty flavour which really compliments the sausages but ordinary mushrooms do just as well. This really is a great midweek dish which the whole family will enjoy.
