I made this savoury sausages with pineapple, mashed potato and vegetables for my family recently and it has been hailed the newest favourite family dinner, trumping Mexican and spaghetti bolognese. The kids and hubby absolutely loved it. I enjoyed it, although I’m not really a fan of hot pineapple, but it was easy enough for me to pick them off :). The sauce from the casserole coupled with mashed potato was delicious!
This is a great recipe to make, not very hard at all. Add sausages into casserole dish, top with vegetables, mix sauce in a jug and pour on top.
While the sausages are cooking in the oven make some mashed potato and steamed vegetables. Add pineapple in the last 15 minutes of cooking.
Here you have a delicious meat and 3 veg dinner, and easy family dinner.
