Pork sausages are cooked along with sliced leeks, garlic, white wine and parsley to create a warming and scrumptious casserole. This is then served up with creamy chive mash for an unbeatable comforting feast.


  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 8 pork sausages
  • 1 Spanish onion sliced
  • 200g sliced leeks
  • 4 cloves garlic sliced
  • 2 sticks celery sliced
  • Small bunch of sage leaves, picked
  • 200ml white wine
  • 400ml passata
  • 400ml chicken stock
  • 2 bay leaves
  • Salt and cracked black pepper
  • Small bunch flat leaf parsley, chopped
  • For the mash:
  • 800g potatoes peeled and cut into 4
  • 100g butter
  • 300ml full fat milk
  • Salt and cracked white pepper
  • 1 bunch of chives finely chopped


1 Preheat oven to 180ºC / 350ºF.

2 Fry the sausages in a casserole dish until golden brown, then remove with a slotted spoon. You may need to do this in two batches.

3 Add the onions, leeks, garlic, celery and sage and cook until the mix starts to brown slightly.

4 Next, add the wine, stock, passata and bay leaves and then season with salt and pepper.

5 Add the sausages back in. Put the lid on and cook in the oven for 20 minutes.

6 Meanwhile, place your potatoes in a medium sized pan, cover with water and bring to the boil. Simmer gently until cooked - around 20 minutes

7 Once cooked, drain and mash the potatoes and add the butter and milk. Stir over a low heat until the butter has melted and the mash is piping hot. Season and add the chives. Set aside.

8 Remove the casserole from oven, stir in chopped parsley and serve with the mash.
