Slow Cooker Recipe - Sausage and Apple Pot

Updated on April 24, 2012


 This is a great recipe to get rid of any small quantities of vegetable you have left hanging about in the fridge.  Kid will love this one. Bon Appetite.

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion, peeled and sliced
  • 2-3 garlic cloves, peeled and sliced
  • 2 celery sticks, sliced
  • 8 pork sausages
  • 300g/ 10oz carrots, peeled and sliced
  • 1 large cooking apple, peeled and sliced
  • 300g/ 10oz courgettes, sliced
  • salt and pepper
  • 600ml / 1 pint vegetable stock
  • 2 tsp dried mixed herbs
  • 450g/ 1lb potatoes, peeled and grated
  • 50g/ 2oz Gruyere cheese, grated


 Heat the oil in a frying pan, add the onion, garlic and celery and fry for five minutes. Push the vegetable to one side, then add the sausages and cook, turning the sausage over, until browned.

Spoon all the fried ingredients into the slow cooker. Arrange the onions over and around the sausages with the carrots, apple and courgettes.  Season to taste with salt and pepper and pour over the stock.  Sprinkle with mixed herbs, cover with the lid and switch the slow cooker to high and cook for one hour. Switch the cooker to auto and cook for three to five hours.

Meanwhile, soak the grated potatoes in a bowl of cold water for ten minutes. Drain thoroughly, then place potatoes on a clean tea towel and squeeze to remove any excess moisture.

Remove the lid from the slow cooker and place the grated potatoes on top. Sprinkle with the grated cheese and recover with the lid.  Cook for a further one to two hours.  If like, just before serving, remove the lid and place the dish under a preheated grill and cook until the topping is crisp.

      Sounds really good, will have to give it a try. The slow cooker is sitting on the side in our kitchen feeling lonely from lack of use, this will help me correct that. Thanks!
