Bacon-Wrapped Sausage Casserole With Apple & Tomato Sauce

Total Time

From a popular collection of Recipes originally published in an Afrikaans magazine, Huisgenoot. The recipe calls for a coarse South African sausage, Boerewors, which is generally made up of 2/3 beef, 1/3 pork, plus spices, etc., but I use normal pork sausages for this. A lovely casserole, I serve it with Dauphinoise potatoes.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Roll each sausage in 1 or two rashers of bacon and secure with a toothpick.
  2. Sauté the apples and onions in half the oil. Spoon them into an ovenproof dish with a lid.
  3. Arrange the sausages on top.
  4. Braise the tomatoes and green pepper in the remaining oil, sprinkle the flour over, and cook for about three minutes.
  5. Add the stock and flavourings and cook for a further three minutes.
  6. Spoon the tomato sauce over the sausage, cover with the lid, and bake for 45 minutes in a preheated oven at 180°C (350°F).

A fantastic family meal which we all enjoyed so much tonight. The apple adds such a sweetness which both my daughter really enjoyed. Served with steamed potatoes which I mashed.

I was very surprised my whole famaily really (really) liked this meal. My husband, who hates his meals mixed with fruit, loved it. My kids (who are 3 and 6) asked for seconds - and lately my three year old fights most dinners. I used Polish Kielbasa because I really had no idea what type of sausage the recipe required, butter because I had no sunflower oil, regular white flour and a can of stewed tomatoes. The bacon wasn't completely done when I pulled the dish out of the oven so I put the bacon and sausage in the microwave for 2 minutes. Next time I will micro the bacon for a minute before I wrap them. Loved this and will be making it again. Thanks!

This was great! The flavours went together wonderfully and the sauce was a nice consistency. We enjoyed along with some steamed potatoes.
