Cooking instructions

Heat the oil in a large flameproof casserole dish over a medium heat and fry the sausages for 4-5 minutes, or until browned all over. Remove the sausages from the dish and set asid

Add more oil to the casserole dish, if necessary, and fry the bacon for 5-6 minutes, or until crispy. Add the leek, carrot and garlic and fry for 3-4 minutes, or until the leek is tender.

Cook’s tips: If you don’t have a casserole dish which can be used on the stove, use a large saucepan and transfer the casserole to an ovenproof dish to finish in the oven.
