Makes a beautiful really tasty winter casserole, so, large oven proof dish with lid required.
This sounds like a lot of work but only takes about 20-25 mins to assemble. The beauty of it is, once made it can be refrigerated until an hour before you need it.
Serve with fresh crusty bread.
12 Sausages of choice
1 Cabbage (savoy\'s good)
6-8oz Bacon pieces or equivalent
2 pints Beef Stock
1tsp Mixed herbs
Small tub, Double cream
Butter, enough to daub over top of dish when assembled
Turn Oven onto 180c
Brown Sausages in pan (no oil required) put to one side to cool slightly. When cool enough slice each sausage lengthwise into 3 pieces.
Brown bacon pieces,and drain on kitchen paper.
Peel and slice Onion and soften in the pan and fat left by bacon, drain.
Chop cabbage (remove stalks) then put in a microwaveable dish and microwave for approx 5 mins, again until softened.
Add bacon and onion to cabbage and mix.
Peel and slice (1/4inch) potatoes , put them in a bowl of water for a couple of minutes, then drain.
Make up your stock and add herbs and double cream.
Take your oven dish and layer your ingredients,
