Bacon-Wrapped Sausage Casserole With Apple & Tomato Sauce

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).

I liked that the recipe was not too sweet even though it had fruit in it. This recipe produce quite a bit of gravy. Satisfying belly warmer.

Got rave reviews from the family. Sausage is kind of vague so I went with what I had which was Chicken and Gouda sausage from Costco. I also used precooked bacon. Otherwise followed the directions.

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.
