I found a recipe for "Cowboy Pie" in a recipe book ages ago, it was a really simple dish of baked beans, sausages and mash. My version has been a real work in progress and is a very satisfying comforting meal. Children always love it, and its a great way to get them eating a few veggies!
PLease dont take the measurements as absolute, especially the bbq sauce, as there are so many different kinds, enough should be added to give it a zing!
If you dont have mini/cocktail sausages, you can just use regular ones, I find it best to cook them whole first and then chop them up, as if you try to chop them and then cook them you end up with a gooey mess!
You can really add whatever you like to this, although I do recommend the shredded cabbage as it gives it a nice crunch.
