Fiesta Friday #26 – Blazing saddles I warn you!

Fiesta Friday #26 – Blazing saddles I warn you!

Though it is not Friday I couldn’t resist entering the party late with some great comfort food.

This one is called Cowboy Casserole, now I can tell you there is a reason for that.  It is superbly easy to make in a slow cooker or otherwise but ermmm can possibly have some airy after effects.  I can say it tastes absolutely delicious and it doesn’t stay on the plate for long at all and definitely no left overs.

Cowboy Casserole

I serve this with some warmed up crusty bread for dipping and cleaning the plate.


Enough sausages for your family

1 small tin of baked beans

1 tin mixed beans, drained

3 carrots, grated

1 onion, diced

sunflower oil

4 large baking potatoes

1 beef stock cube to make up 1/2 pint

3 bay leaves

2 tsp curry powder

1 tbsp tomatoe puree


Fry the sausages until brown in a pan, remove from the pan and put on the table.

In the same pan, add a little oil and fry off the onion and carrot.  Next add the beans, tomatoe puree, curry powder, bay leaves and stock.  Simmer for 10 minutes.

Meanwhile peel and chop up the potatoes, boil and mash.

Next lay the sausage in the bottom of the casserole dish, pour over the bean sauce and top with the mash.  Fork the top of the mash and put in to the oven on 200C/Gas 6 for 30 mins.

Tadaaah done!


Some of you will remember the farting scene from Blazing Saddles?

This is such an apt clip for you to watch, related to this Recipe, please let me know if you got a giggle or not, Justine xx

    Oooo, you’ve given me a head start to dream about English sausages! Oh how I love them and miss them here. I’m making a trip to England next week to visit my family, and I’ll be sure to gorge on these lovely sausages :). They just don’t taste the same over here :)). Great dish!

          • July 27, 2014 at 9:11 PM

            Hopefully! I’m thinking about switching web hosts, or whatever you call them… And need to think about the theme. I’m keeping my current header, but think it might need to be bigger when I changeover. I asked if she could expand on mine. 🙂

            By the way, I’m so sorry to hear about your pup. You have my sympathies… They’re just like our family.. ❤️


            • July 30, 2014 at 7:18 AM

  8. July 27, 2014 at 7:27 PM

    looks good – and easy to make as well, nothing that one wouldn’t have in the pantry! I might be tempted to add some chili though.


    • July 27, 2014 at 9:02 PM

      Haha your wild well your evening might be with beans and chilli!


  9. July 27, 2014 at 9:51 PM

    Nothing wrong with coming a little late to the party- especially since you brought this amazing casserole! Sounds like real hearty comfort food, great job!

    As a vego I am allowed to overlook the recipe and remark on “Blazing Saddles” and its endlessly hilarious farting scene. I doubt I will EVER not laugh at it. 🙂
    Mel Brooks’ other equally hilarious (without farting) scene is in “Silent Movie”, where several cast members are in full medieval armour in a canteen .. And I cannot find a clip of it, alas !! [sob !] I can tell you that it made me laugh so much that I slipped off my chair, and that’s the truth.


    • July 30, 2014 at 7:20 AM

      haha i would have liked to see that both Mel brooks and you slipping of fyour chair hehe


  12. July 28, 2014 at 7:39 AM

    Remove the sausages from the pan… And pit them in the table? Hahaha! That does look very good though! Brilliant pimped sausage mash and beans!


    • July 30, 2014 at 7:22 AM

      now Mr Fitz this dish is right up your alley!


      • July 30, 2014 at 8:15 AM

        Yeah.. Am unsure about putting hot sausages direct into the table though


  13. July 28, 2014 at 5:40 PM

    Ooh this looks amazing, I am definitely going to make this!!


    • July 30, 2014 at 7:22 AM

  14. July 28, 2014 at 9:22 PM

  15. July 28, 2014 at 9:27 PM

  16. July 31, 2014 at 6:47 PM
