Watching the Pennies.


Tonight I am cooking a meal that is one of my families favourites.
It comes from

Martha's Kitchen War Time Recipes booklet.


2lb Potatoes.
1lb Onions.
1lb Sausages.
1 T Sage.
1 T Thyme.
2 Beef stock cubes.
Salt & Pepper.

Peel and slice the potatoes, peel and chop the onions.
Dice the Sausages.

In a baking dish put a layer of potatoes, a layer of onions and a layer of sausage.
Season to taste and sprinkle over half the herbs.

Continues the layers until you have used all of the ingredients, ending with a layer of potatoes.
Sprinkle the rest of the herbs.

Dissolve the stock cubes in 1 pint (600ml) of hot water and pour into the baking dish.

Bake in a medium oven for approximately 40 minutes.

Martha suggests serving with crisp green cabbage.

I serve it with various vegetables or baked beans.

Stovies Recipe at MyDish

This recipe is one of the ingenious healthy and nutritious meals introduced by the Ministry of Food during WW2 when food rationing was introduced however with food prices increasing by the day Healthy and Nutritional meals are ones again an important part of making food shopping money (house keeping) go that little bit further or at least as far as it went last week.

And of course if there is any left over it can be re heated the next day or frozen for another day.

If you try this recipe I hope you enjoy it, let me know ....
