Sausage and Apple Cobbler

I love a good casserole at this time of year, there's nothing better to warm the cockles! This was a really good recipe and I much preferred the scone like cobbler topping with this savoury dish, than I did with the sweet for my birthday. I'm going to have a look for some more savoury cobblers!

Sausage and Apple Cobbler (from Channel 4)
(Serves 4)
8 sausages 
2 carrots, chopped
1 leek, chopped
1 onion, sliced
2 apples, peeled, cored and sliced
500ml apple juice
250ml veg stock
100g self-raising flour (plus extra for coating the veg)
25g butter
Preheat the oven to 180°C.

Grill the pork sausages until browned. Place in a casserole dish.

Toss the veg in a little self-raising flour until coated then add to the sausages. Add the apple juice to the veg stock and pour over the sausages and veg, then bake for 45 minutes.

Meanwhile, make the cobbler topping by rubbing the butter into the self-raising flour with a sprinkling of salt, until it resembles breadcrumbs. Add a little milk until the mixture forms a soft dough. Shape into small, slightly squashed balls.

After 45 mins, take the casserole out of the oven and top with the balls. Bake for a further 30 minutes and serve.
