Cooking Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180ºC/gas 4.
  2. Heat a tablespoon of oil in a large frying pan and brown the sausages for around 10 mins, turning frequently and ensuring a nice colour all over. Then transfer to a large ovenproof dish and set aside for later.
  3. Cut your Bacon rashers into small 1 inch strips and fry in the pan until golden and crisp then add to the sausages.
  4.  Slice 2 onions and add to the pan with the sliced mushrooms. Saute until softened, or until the onion has turned slightly translucent, then add 2 crushed garlic cloves and fry for a further 3 minutes, stirring frequently, until the onions are a golden brown.
  5. Add the smoked paprika and stir, ensuring an even coating on everything.
  6. Stir in the tomatoes, chicken stock, Worcestershire sauce, tomato purée, brown sugar, thyme, mixed herbs and the bay leaves.
  7. Pour in the red wine and bring to a gentle simmer.
  8. Add the contents of the frying pan to the dish that we set aside earlier.
  9. Place in the centre of the preheated oven and cover with a lid or foil and bake for 30min.
