Sausage and Pepper Casserole – Slow Cooker Recipe

By Chris Bennett | 25/06/2012 | Posted in Kitchen

A big thanks to Jan Bennett who is responsible for the ‘Glug of Oil’ blog, Jan recently sent ‘Home of the House Proud’ a recipe for a Sausage and Pepper Casserole – we’ve tried this recipe here at Morphy HQ and it’s scrumptious, you really should give it a go…

Sausage and Pepper Casserole

To serve: Up to 4 adults and 2 Children


2x Large onions – peeled and sliced

2x Fat cloves of garlic – peeled and finely chopped

2x Celery stalks – washed and sliced

2x Red bell peppers – stalk and seeds removed and cut into chunks

1x Green bell pepper – stalk and seeds removed and cut into chunks

12x Good quality thick Cumberland sausages

1x Tablespoon of tomato puree

2x 400g tins of good quality tomatoes

1x tablespoon of smoked paprika

300ml Chicken stock made from a Knorr stock cube

Salt and black pepper to season

A little olive oil


  • Get yourself a nice big frying pan and heat up the oil
  • Add the onions, garlic and celery and cook over a low/medium heat for about 10 minutes
  • Now add in the peppers and cook until the onions are nice and soft but not coloured
  • Stir in the tomato puree and cook for a minute over a low heat
  • Give it all a good stir and throw in the paprika, both tins of tomatoes including the juice and just 200ml of the stock
  • Stir it again and bring to the boil.  Now tip everything into your slow cooker. 
  • Wipe the frying pan out and brown the sausages.  Remember they’ll have plenty of time to cook once in the slow cooker – all you’re doing is browning them nicely.
  • Once they’re nicely browned, pop them into the slow cooker
  • Cook on a low heat for seven hours.  Before serving, have a taste and adjust the seasoning with a little salt if need and some black pepper. (Add the other 100ml of stock if you need to)
  • Serve with mashed potato.  You can of course freeze in portions once it’s gone cold
