Feed Your Family For £20...In A Hurry! The Cookbook

Cowboy Pie Lasagne

This was one of those - I fancy lasagne but have no mince so what can I use instead ? recipes. We are real advocates of substituting what you need for what you have. Hence the Hotdogs instead of mince and the beans instead of another tin of tomatoes. I bulked it out with a few regular sausages too but you can easily just use all of one kind if you prefer.This turned out delicious,filling and fairly cheap which again is our mantra. I think the kids will love it but its suitable for all the family. Its really just sausage and bean lasagne but Ive called it Cowboy Pie Lasagne as its more fun. Why not give this a try and let us know how you get on in the comments below. We love to hear your feedback x

Yields4 Servings

 8 Lasagne sheets
 1 Tin of Hotdogs
 3 Link sausages
 1 Tin of Baked Beans
 1 Tin of Chopped Tomatoes
 2 Onions
 1 Pepper
 2 tbsp Tomato Paste
 60 g Porridge Oats
 2 Garlic cloves
 ½ tsp Mixed herbs
 1 Beef Stock cube
 1 tsp Oil
 Cheese sauce
 3 tbsp Flour
 750 ml Milk
 250 g Mature Cheese
 1 tsp Mustard (optional)
 1 tbsp Butter

1

Prep:-
Dice the onions
Dice the Pepper-(I used 1/2 red + green)
Fry the link sausages then chop all the sausages into small slices.

2

Add the oil to a pan on a low/medium heat.
Add the onions and fry till soft(3-4mns)
Add the Peppers and fry for 2-3mns.
Add the beans and tomatoes.
Stir through and add the stock cube and tomato paste

3

Add the herbs and garlic.
Add the Oats and stir through.
Add all the sausages to the pan.

4

Stir through and realise you might need a bigger pan lol. Leave it to simmer on a low heat.

5

Meanwhile make a Cheese sauce.
Add the butter and flour to a pan on a low heat, stir through then add a splash of milk and continue stirring. Gradually add more milk as you stir till all the lumps have cooked out and you have a smooth sauce.
Add 3/4 of the cheese and then the mustard.
Stir till blended then set aside.

6

Add 1/4 of the sausage mix to the Slow Cooker

7

Lay the Lasagne sheets on top-break them up to fit loosely round the edges. I use 2 sheets per layer but use more if you need to-dont worry about not covering the whole mix as it will still hold.

8

Pour 1/4 of the cheese sauce over the lasagne sheets.

9

Continue layering till the mix is used up-sausage-pasta-sauce-ending with the sauce

10

Sprinkle a little cheese over the top.

11

Place a Tea towel over the top then the lid and cook on Low for 3hrs or high for 2hrs

12

Once cooked sprinkle some remaining cheese on top and finish under the grill (optional)
Use a knife to cut through the layers and a wide Spatula to lift it out.

13

Serve with salad and garlic bread.

14

Easy swaps:-
Hotdogs for any sausages.
Beans for Tomatoes.
Tomatoes for Passata.
Cheese sauce for White sauce.

There's a regular Lasagne on the website if you prefer that.
