I’m a big fan of using my slow cooker, and of having a big variety of dinners in our meal planning repertoire. From time to time we like to mix it up, with some easier dinners, that are delicious and yet don’t take long to cook. For nights like this, we love a sausage based dinner. Sausage and mash, toad in the hole, sausage cassoulet, sausage, chips & beans – the list goes on! Recently I was invited to London, by Richmond, to find out more about their new Richmond chicken sausages – which have 20% less calories and 30% less fat but still taste good!
When I arrived at lunch with Richmond I was greeted by Angellica Bell, who is absolutely lovely! We were able to watch a demonstration of three separate recipes; toad in the hole, sausage & mash and sausages & chips but all with a twist. The toad in the hole had lots of lovely herbs in it. The sausage & mash was served with beautiful rich gravies and the sausages & chips were actually sausages and parmesan wedges which were absolutely delicious.
Once we had made our own Yorkshire puddings we were invited to cook-a-long and make our own homemade baked beans.
The recipe was really simple. It was a little oil, chopped onions, then to this, we added tomato puree, herbs and brown sugar. Once this had cooked a little we added in the cannellini beans. It was super straightforward and after 5-10 minutes they were ready!
I decided to bring mine home for Daisy to enjoy and she absolutely loved them! I’ll definitely be making this recipe again as I love that you can tailor the baked beans, adding in a little cooked bacon or even some other vegetables, to make a really hearty side dish.
Once our demonstration was over we enjoyed a lovely lunch together which consisted of chicken sausage and mushroom kebabs, creamy chicken sausage pasta, salad, parmesan wedges and chicken sausages with mustard. The choice was varied and it was lovely to try lots of different dishes.
Richmond chicken sausages are available from all major supermarkets and have an RRP of £2.50. I’m looking forward to trying one of my favourite dishes, slow cooker sausage cassoulet, using Richmond chicken sausages. My version doesn’t look the prettiest but it is delicious and I’m looking forward to making it even healthier with these chicken sausages, as they contain 30% less fat and 20% fewer calories. There are lots of other products in the Richmond Sausages range too next time you fancy a sausage dinner.
