This hearty sausage and bacon casserole offers a warm Irish welcome to anyone coming in from the cold - and will soak up a fair bit of Guinness, too.


  • low calorie cooking spray
  • 2 large onions, thinly sliced
  • 8 back bacon rashers, visible fat removed, roughly chopped
  • 8 Sainsbury's Be Good to Yourself Cumberland Sausages, Less Than 3% Fat*, halved
  • 550ml boiling beef stock
  • 650g potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper


1 Preheat the oven to 200°C/Fan 180°C/Gas 6.

2 Spray a large non-stick frying pan with low calorie cooking spray and place over a medium heat. Fry the onions for 5 minutes or until golden and beginning to soften. Add the bacon and sausages and fry for a further 5 minutes or until the sausages are browned and the onions have caramelised, adding a little stock if the pan is looking a bit dry.

3 Spoon the sausage mixture into a large casserole dish (that has a tight-fitting lid). Arrange the potatoes on top, slightly overlapping, to completely cover the sausage mixture. Pour over the stock and push the potatoes down into the stock. Season with salt and pepper, cover and bake for 45 minutes.

4 Lower the heat to 180°C/Fan 160°C/Gas 4. Spray the potatoes with a little low calorie cooking spray and cook uncovered for a further 30 minutes.

5 Serve hot with your favourite vegetables.
