Day 2 - Sausage Casserole and Buttered Cabbage

Our meal last night was a sausage casserole with buttered cabbage. Low carb and delicious! I’m trying hard to fit into my salopettes in 3 weeks time.
This is the link for the Buttered Cabbage recipe, and I got the recipe for the sausage casserole out of the Idiots Proof Diet Cookbook, but can also be found in Bee's recipes on pigs2twigs web site

This recipe is the one with all my subs in ...

6 pork farm sausages
splash of olive oil
1 x tin chopped tomatoes
1 bunch of spring onions, sliced (the original had 2 leeks)
squirt tomato puree
1 tsp sherry vinegar

To serve:
Finely sliced steamed, buttered cabbage
grated Parmesan cheese

Chop each sausage into three.
Heat the oil in a shallow pan and fry the sausage pieces until brown all over.
Remove the sausage pieces with a slotted spoon and place in an oven proof casserole dish.
Add the spring onion greens or leeks if using to the pan.
Stir and fry for a couple of minutes then tip in the chopped tomatoes, a squirt of tomato puree and a teaspoon of sherry vinegar.
Bring to the boil then turn down the heat and simmer gently for 5 mins.
Pour over the sausage peices cover the casserole with a lid or foil and put into a medium oven (gas 4 or 5) for 30 mins.
Serve with buttered cabbage and sprinkle with parmesan cheese.

It was delish...and the leftovers ( I made myself leave some) re-heated really well in the microwave!

I love cabbage and your whole dinner looks great. Warming and rustic, just what the soul needs on these dark January nights.
