Sausage and Red Wine Casserole

We cooked this last night. 

It was quite simple, quick and we were able to go down the pub for some Aspall Cyder, whilst it cooked in the AGA.

The recipe came from Cook Simply.  It was modified to make it gluten-free.

The casserole needed the following ingredients.

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 6 Musks gluten-free pork sausages
  • 150 g bacon rashers, chopped
  • 250 g shallots, peeled
  • 1 tbls (20 g) gluten-free plain flour (Doves Farm)
  • 350 ml red wine
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 tbsp fresh thyme, chopped
  • 400 g can tomatoes, chopped
  • 150 g button mushrooms
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper

Unfortunately, we didn’t have any mushrooms and we had to use onions instead of shallots.  But it was still quick and easy.

The method is as follows.

  1. Heat the oil in a large casserole and brown the sausages all over.
  2. Remove from the pan and fry the bacon and onions.
  3. Sprinkle in the flour and stir in the wine gradually.
  4. Put the sausages back in the pan, add the garlic, bay leaf, thyme, tomatoes and season well.
  5. Cover the pan and allow to simmer gently for 30 minutes.
  6. Add the mushrooms and leave to cook for a further 10 minutes before serving.

We cooked the casserole in the bottom oven of the AGA and it took just over an hour.

There was also two sausages left over, so they were put into a small freezer tray and frozen.  I’ll let you know what it is like when I get it out.
