When the weather is as bad as it has been recently, there is nothing like some comfort food to lift your spirits. Growing up, my Dad always used to make Sausage & Bean Pie for dinner and now whenever I have it, I am reminded of my childhood.

Sausage and Bean pie is very simple to make and takes no time at all. My Dad normally makes his with normal potato but as I had Sweet Potatoes, I decided to switch it up a little.

You will need:

500g Sausagemeat
Large tin of baked beans (415g)
2 large sweet potatoes

Method:

001) Preheat the oven to the temperature specified on the packet of sausage meat.
002) Cook the sausage meat in an oven proof dish as per instructions on packet (usually around 25 mins)
003) While the sausage meat is cooking, peel the sweet potatoes and then boil them in a pan of water until suitable for mashing.
004) Once the sausage meat is cooked, drain off any juice and once the potatoes are suitable for mashing, remove from the heat and mash.
005) Add the beans on top of the sausage meat followed by the mashed potato.
006) Put the dish back into the oven for a further 10-15 minutes.
