  • Take the sausages and fry on each site until browned. Remove and place on the plate with the bacon. Add the cabbage and potatoes to the pan and fry for 5-7 minutes in the sausage/bacon fat.
  • Spice with sage, cumin (if using), salt and pepper. Mix well and then add ⅛ l water to the pot.
  • Add the mixture into a oven proof casserole dish.
  • Place the sausages on top and cover with a lid.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for about 60 minutes. After 45 minutes remove the lid, add the bacon to the top and back the remaining 15 minutes without the lid.
  • To serve sprinkle with some chopped spring onions.( optional).
  • A complementing side dish could be a green salad.



This dish will keep in the fridge, in an airtight container up to 4 days. You may even find it tastes even better the next day when the flavours had time to infuse.
