Quick Sausage Casserole

Tefal Cook4Me Multicooker 

The Tefal Cook4Me is a Multicooker which means it can brown, cook, reheat, steam, pressure cook, or cook 50 different pre-programmed recipes or be used manually to create your own thing.

All in all, this really is a brilliant invention.

You might like to read my review of the Tefal Cook4Me and also see how easy it is to make a dish such as Beef Madras in just 20 minutes.

Well, today let me tell you about this seriously quick and very tasty Sausage Casserole with a cooking time of just 9 minutes.

No fancy ingredients either, in fact, I used a shop-bought cook-in sauce in order to show just how very easy and simple this multicooker really is.

The Cook4Me as I said comes with 50 pre-programmed recipes and to create your own recipe is just finding a similar recipe, in this case, it was Sausage and Bean Casserole.

None of the recipes are difficult to follow at all, nor do they require any fancy ingredients. But the pre-programmed recipe called for dicing a carrot and red pepper and a glass of red wine.

Okay, that's nothing tricky as I say, but what if you actually can't be bothered to even do that?

Sausage Casserole from a Jar!

So, armed with a jar of sausage casserole cook-in sauce (Homepride brand) if you must know!

I chopped an onion and a few mushrooms which you don't have to but doing so will, of course, give more flavour.

I then selected the sausage and bean stew recipe on the Tefal Cook4Me and browned the sausages and onions as instructed.

Then I poured in the cooking sauce, closed the lid and waited. Cooking took just 9 minutes which caught me out a bit since the mashed potatoes weren't ready. It's all my fault as it does tell you at the start how long or should I say how quickly it will take to cook.

Please note the cooking time of 9 minutes is to serve 4 people - to serve 2 people the cooking time is less and just 6 minutes!

Bear in mind you do have to brown the sausages and onions for a few minutes which is obviously on top of those cooking times and also the machine has to get up to pressure which adds a few minutes more.

But your dinner will still be cooked faster than conventional cooking methods.

Anyway, no need to fuss since the Tefal Cook4Me automatically switches to keep warm. Food can be kept warm for up to 90 minutes.

Coming up next time, is soup using a pre-programmed recipe but I can't decide between Butternut or Leek and Potato, what do you reckon?
