Winter is coming....Make this belter to warm your cockles
Heat a glug of the oil in a large frying pan and fry the sausages until nicely browned all over and set aside. Fry the bacon pieces in the frying pan until they begin to brown and crisp then add to the sausages.
Place the onions in the frying pan and fry over a medium heat until they start to soften. You should have enough fat in the pan, then add the garlic
Add the chilli flakes and cayenne and stir in the tomatoes, chicken stock, tomato purée, Worcestershire sauce, brown sugar and herbs. Pour over the wine, or some water if you’re not using wine, and bring to a simmer.
Add the sausages and bacon and return to a simmer, then reduce the heat, cover the pan with a lid and leave to simmer for 20 minutes.
Drain the beans and rinse under cold running water. Stir the beans into the casserole, and continue to cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the sauce is thick. Serve with buttery mashed potatoes.
