This recipe is vague because it was unexpected.  It wasn’t something I planned to plan- I thought sausage, my husband said crumble, and the rest is history! One of those surprises where you know from the first forkful that you will eat it many more times.

I first came across  a savoury crumble in the veggie section of my student cookbook. This recipe, however, would be great for anyone who loves a good pie and fancies something different, or doesn’t have the time or space to play with pastry.

Ingredients

  • 1 Onion
  • 2 Carrots
  • 1 Cooking apple
  • 6 Sausages
  • A little flour and gravy powder
  • Mace and cayenne pepper to taste
  • 8oz Porridge oats
  • 2oz Margarine
  • 2oz Cheese

Instructions

  1. Chop the carrots, onion and apple.
  2. Snip the sausages into chunks and put them in a saucepan.  Cook until they're tanned all over and the fragrance is filling the room.
  3. Add the onion and cook until it's soft.  You may have to add some oil if the sausages are very lean.
  4. Add the carrots and apple and stir round until they start to melt into each other.
  5. Stir in the flour, gravy powder, mace and cayenne pepper.  Add enough freshly boiled water to cover. Simmer until the sausages are done, and the sauce is nice and gloopy.
  6. Now for the crumble topping.  Grate the cheese.  Rub the butter into the oats, and mix the cheese in.
  7. Put the sausage mixture into an ovenproof dish, or individual dishes, and sprinkle on the topping.  Cook in a hot oven until the sauce bubbles and the  top is golden.
  8. Cook some potatoes and veg while your crumble is in the oven, and serve with shed-loads of gravy!

We’ve eaten this twice as I made half the mixture as individual portions for the freezer, and we’re hooked! If you have a go at this let me know how you get on-  a friend has already made her own increased-cheese version.
