Potato Casserole & Honey Mustard Sausages

Because im home, i have heaps of time on my hands so i have been trying out new recipes that i have found on Pinterest. This is the potato casserole i made last night with a couple of changes from the original recipe.

original recipe comes from  MakeLifeDelicious Below is my version

Potato Casserole

1 1/2 kg Potatoes
2 cans Cream of Mushroom Soup
300ml Sour Cream
1 1/2 cups grated Cheese
Salt & Pepper
sprinkling of Bread Crumbs
few knobs of Butter

place a clean tea towel inside a large mixing bowl or bucket

peal your potatoes

grate your potatoes into your tea towel, then bring up the corners of your tea towel, twist & then squeeze your potato ball to remove excess water. empty your bowl with the potato juice & wipe out.

place into your bowl : Potato, Soup, Cream, Cheese, Salt & Pepper, mix together.
grease your baking tin ~ casserole dish i have found butter works better than oil.

tip in your mix, add a few knobs of better & sprinkle with bread crumbs.
180 degrees on the middle shelf for about 1 hour or until brown & bubbly.
this makes a fair bit but its even better reheated the next day.
you can add extra chopped mushrooms
i dont always have sour cream so i just use a carton of long life cream from my pantry

Honey Mustard Sausages

this recipe calls for those little cocktail sausages but i just use regular thin sausages the other ones are too expensive. this recipe has no quantities

Wholegrain Mustard

cook your sausages either in a fry pan or i usually cook them in a baking tray in the oven. remove the sausages & drain, cut each sausage into three pieces.
in a small pot add about 2 1/2 Tbl Honey & 2 Tbl Mustard [the amount will depend on how many sausages you use] heat until runny.
there are two ways to do this, you can either put the sausages back into the pan [after you have drained the fat & wiped out the pan] & then pour over the honey mix & place it back into the oven for five minutes or you can put the sausages into a serving bowl & honey mix into a dipping bowl {second option is good for party finger food]

both recipes are very yummy, especially the next day :o)

i still have some stuff over on my Flickr account for sale if you want to have a look :o)
