Bonfire slow cooker sausage and bean casserole
I’m a huge fan of my slow cooker because with that set it and forget it mentality it’s just so easy. Just chuck everything in there in the morning and leave it to become a delicious meal for later. Coming home after work to something already cooked and waiting for you feels really comforting.
This sausage and bean casserole ticks all the comfort food boxes. It’s warming, delicious and very easy to make. You can chuck all your ingredients in the slow cooker and leave them for the day if you want.
I was sent some Heck Chickfurters to try and they inspired this bonfire night recipe. As much as I love hotdogs I wanted to create something a little different with these sausages. So this slow cooker sausage and bean casserole was born.
This casserole can be teamed with pasta, bread rolls, rice or mash. Or if you’re lucky enough to have a double slow cooker you could try these jacket potatoes.
- 8 Sausages (we used the Heck Chickfurters)
- 1 Tin of baked beans
- 1 Tin of tomatoes
- 1 Onion sliced
- 2 Cloves of garlic quartered or chopped
- 1 Pepper (any colour) sliced
- 1 Tsp paprika
- 1 Tsp ground coriander
- 1 Tsp mixed herbs
- Salt and black pepper as required
- Place the onion, garlic and peppers in the bottom of the slow cooker then place the sausages on top. If you prefer to brown your sausages beforehand you can do so before putting them in the slow cooker.
- Tip over the tinned tomatoes and the baked beans and sprinkle over the spices.
- Give it a good stir! Then add a tins worth of water to prevent the casserole from drying out.
- Cook the casserole for 4 hours on high or 6 hours on low.
- Serve with mash, jackets, rolls, rice or pasta!
