700g potatoes, peeled and very thinly sliced
1 medium onion, peeled and finely chopped
150 ml milk
150 ml stock or water
A little oil
1 teaspoon dried mixed herbs
salt and freshly milled black pepper
Preheat oven to 180C/gas 4.
Brown the sausages all over in a little oil in a frying pan – this should take around 5 or 6 minutes. Butter round the base of a casserole. Then put in a layer of potatoes, a sprinkling of onion and seasoning and repeat the layers until all the potatoes are in, finishing off with a few flecks of butter.
Now remove the browned sausages from the pan, using a draining spoon, and place these on top of the potatoes. Sprinkle in the dried herbs, pour in the milk and water, cover the casserole with a piece of foil, place it in the oven and bake for about 45 minutes. Then remove the foil and bake for a further 15-20 minutes, or until the potatoes are tender when tested with a thin skewer. Serve and a side salad.
