Another prepared meal

So much for automatic scheduled publishing of posts! This one, and the last, should have published last week whilst we were away!! Anyhow, it will take me quite a few days to catch up on all your blog's so please bear with me:)

Welcome to Kaai, Patricia Gibbons and Janice Foehring via Bloglovin!

Something else we prepared for our holidays was Farmers Sausage-meat Hotpot. You can make this for a normal meal in a lasagne dish, you will need 6 - 8 thick sausages for that.

Lightly grease the trays dish. Using 1 or 2 sausages per person, in this case per tray, remove their skin, feel for any 'unwanted' lumps and press into the bottom of the tray:
Then a layer of sliced tomatoes, plus salt and pepper:
Top with a layer of sliced mushrooms, if you like them plus salt and pepper:
Next should be a layer of chopped, cooked bacon but I didn't have any.
After the bacon, add a layer of apple, cooking or eating:

A layer of grated cheese:
Finally a layer of mashed potatoes:
Pop on the lids, name and freeze. When wanting to eat, thaw out overnight then cook in a hot oven, say 200C, for 25 - 30 minutes or until bubbling and top is starting to brown. Same applies if using a lasagne dish.

Laying the dish in this exact way, helps the juices of one run into the other and intensifies the flavour. We normally eat it on its own with some brown sauce.


  1. This is a winner in my book, the only thing that I will add is some very finely sliced onion with the apple, just because i love the two flavours together.

    1. Onions sound a nice addition. It is better in a dish or tin as I ran out of room in the trays!

  2. I like the sound of that x

    1. It is good though we don't eat it too often as I am not keen on sausages.
