Sausage Stovies – Recipe 112


I’ve been craving sausages… however I’m not likely to eat a real one anytime soon, so to satiate my palate I made “Wartime Sausage Stovies” using meatless vegan friendly sausages which are the best I have tasted to date (Linda McCartney Vegetarian Sausages).

The result was incredibly comforting and moreish and I would imagine, using real sausages, would be pretty amazing. I love simple recipes, simple foods and something that leaves you wanting more.

This did…!


Sausage Stovies

4 large potatoes
1 large onion
6 large sausages (for vegans try Linda McCartneys vegetarian sausages)
1 tsp sage
1 tsp thyme
1 or 2 beef stock cubes like oxo to taste (or vegan alternative)
salt and pepper (generous)


Peel and slice the potatoes and peel and chop the onions. Dice the
sausages. In a baking dish put a layer of potatoes, a layer of
onions and a layer of sausage. Season to taste and sprinkle over
half the herbs.

Continue the layers until you have used up all the ingredients,
ending with a layer of potatoes. Sprinkle on the rest of the herbs.
Dissolve the stock cubes in 1/2 pint (300ml) of hot water and pour
into the baking dish. (I thickened it a little before pouring) Bake in a medium oven, gas mark 4, 350F, 180C for 40 Minutes.
Serve with green vegetables

  1. Can’t wait to try this tonight! My husband and I have been living on rations for a week now and I have to say that we r loving all the wonderful recipes from ur site! Thanks for sharing with us!

  3. Excellent recipe, very tasty and frugal too! And I use Linda’s veg. sausages very frequently,
    they are so full of flavour and so versatile. Sausage stovies, yummm!

  4. If you are trying to loose weight then replace the potatoes with cauliflower, broccoli or greens as they are all low carbohydrate, compared to the spuds. FYI new potatoes, cooked whole are also better, not guilt free but better for a low carbohydrate diet as opposed to old or floury potatoes.

  5. Great recipe. I always use Linda’s products and often make this one with her sausages. However here in Australia we do not get the full range of her products. I queried this with the local importer who said they could only get a limited range.
