When it comes to cooking for the family, or preparing a quick and simple meal for 1-2 people, nothing beats a healthy casserole dish. Casseroles are the simplest form of ‘one pot cooking’ and require little attention once they’re in the oven!

 

This Healthy Sausage Casserole tastes AMAZING (proved by the fact that my sister NEVER normally clears her dinner plate and she did after this one, on two separate occasions!!), and is an ideal alternative to the traditional Sunday Roast. This casserole also keeps well in the fridge which means it’s great as a healthy mid-week dinner and for lunch the next day.

 

I adapted this recipe from a friend who took inspiration from Mens Health magazine. I subsequently subscribed to it after he told me that!

 

Check out the video above to see me and my sister in action .. and for more videos don’t forget to subscribe to my YouTube Channel!

 

P.S Nutritional values (in the little blue box to the right) will vary depending on the type of sausage you use.. I used 85% meat sausages and chose the highest in protein/lowest in fat of the bunch that I could find! The calories shown are based on 2 sausages i.e 6 servings, excluding extra vegetables served!

 

Ingredients

  • 12 sausages*
  • 2 small onions, chopped**
  • 3 large mushrooms, chopped**
  • 2 cans butter beans
  • 1/2 bottle (125ml) balsamic vinegar
  • 2 punnets plum tomatoes, chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves/3 tsp garlic granules
  • 2-3 slices wholemeal bread
  • 2 tsp coriander
  • salt & pepper

 

*Choose at least 85% meat sausages & then go for the ones that are the highest in protein & lowest in fat per sausage or 100g (I love chicken sausages!).

**You can skip the onions/mushrooms if you want!

Step 3

Add the breadcrumbs into a blender, along with the coriander & blend into breadcrumbs.. pour over the sausage dish, after turning the sausages over.

Step 4

Return to the oven for 20 more minutes and meanwhile simmer your favourite veg (check out the video for mine!).

    This was yummy! So flavourful but healthy! I swapped butter beans for cannellini beans as my hubby doesn’t like butter beans, but then he didn’t have any anyway! (So I had the leftovers for dinner today hee hee)

    Hi Nic, great video and this recipe looks amazing! Can’t wait to try it out! What is the best way to cook the spring greens and what kind did you use in this recipe? I’d love to incorporate more greens into my diet but just not sure on the best way to cook them! Thanks :) x

    Just made this for dinner, used Tesco finest chipolatas instead which were very high meat. When it came out the oven I was a tad skeptical as it didn’t look too appetising but boy did it taste good! Definitely going to make this more and experiment with the recipe!
