I think I was supposed to use sausage links, but I used bulk sausage cause that's all I had. I had to cook it much longer for the potatoes to be done. There's was also alot of liquid in it in the end. I wouldn't say this is a great recipe, but it also isn't a bad one either so I went down the center with a 3 star.

Very nice done in oven I did this for the first time today but I only put half of the stock and half milk like I do when making them in a pot

This sounds a novel variation and one that I will have to try. I have always done stovies on top of the cooker - I have never tried it done in the oven (should this be renamed "ovenies" instead of "stovies"? lol
