spookily good night

1 Nov

Wow what a Halloween party! Everyone looked fantastic! Wait for the photos! It all went down quite well and the bean casserole won approval from everyone so I think it is now good enough to post about!

I am still recovering and even typing hurts so I’m keeping it brief!

I started creating this recipe when I was about 13 using what even i could find in my parents cupboards. It has been adapted over the years to become this. This recipe can be made without the sausages for veggies!


1 x 400 g tin each of kidney beans, butter beans, chickpeas and baked beans
2 x 400 g tins of chopped tomatoes
2 tbsp. tomato puree
1 onion
3 cloves of garlic
6 sausages
2 red chillies
mixed herbs, fresh or dried, pinch of nutmeg
small glass of red wine
olive oil for frying
salt and pepper to taste

For vegie option add 8-10 mushrooms sliced roughly


Cut up the sausages into bite-sized pieces and fry the onion and sausages in a deep pan in the oil until slightly browned. Add the garlic and chillies and continue to fry for 1 minute. Add wine and turn up heat, stirring constantly.

When the wine has reduced add the (mushrooms) washed beans, chickpeas, baked beans, tomatoes, half a can of water, 2 tablespoons of tomato puree, herbs, nutmeg, salt and pepper to the pan and bring to the boil.

Reduce the heat and simmer with the lid on for 30-35 minutes.

Enjoy with crusty bread and hilarious friends!
