Delicious. I left my sausages whole and the result was great.

Extremely easy to make this tasty dish. I used chorizo as that's the only thing available. Doubled up the cooking cream as recommended but used the same amount of mustard as I love it. I particularly love the crispy ciabatta on top. Yum. Will definitely make this again.

As a complete beginner this was fantastically simple and satisfying to make - I put a little less mustard in than stated and more crème fraiche as suggested in the comments and it created the most delicious sauce, tasty without being overpowering - it went down a storm with boyfriend and father with mash on the side - made twice and been requested again!

Ciabatta, mushrooms, creme fraiche (?) I do not want. I hate to say it at my age (50), but I wanted a Sausage meat pie "just like me mother made". Sorry if I come across as negative, but does everything have to have a "twist" on it? Perhaps I'll have to go elsewhere to get this recipe. I will stay with BBC however, no chance of abandoning it! (My favourite cook? Simon Hopkinson. Brilliant). PS: I am married, just wanted to show my wife I could cook, if in a basic way of course!

This is a delicious recipe and so very quick and easy to make. I've made it now with meat sausages (gluten free ones) and veggie sausages - both excellent. I added peas before going in the oven to add some colour. I didn't bother with squeezing out the meat into balls - just cooked sliced veggie sausages.

Really yummy and pretty easy. I used a bit extra creme fraiche and it gave plenty of sauce. Bread was really crispy, my husband really loved it and was very complimentary!

Really good! I used for this loose Italian sausage meat that was already seasoned, soured cream instead of creme fraiche and a good quality sandwich bread for the bread cubes instead of ciabatta. I baked it in one big dish and there is actually enough for two meals there. Can't wait to taste the leftovers!

Tried this with the bread topping,loved it.I have a packet of flaky pastry to use up,so I'll try it with this recipe.

We loved this, although it was an enormous amount of food for 2 people (would easily feed three). I added fennel seeds and chilli flakes to the mix and the ciabatta topping was fab!

Not bad, very filling. I made it with two sausages per person, this was more than enough. Definitely worth increasing the amount of sauce. Ciabatta topping is very nice.

Really delicious meal. It's made it into my recipe scrapbook!

Scrummy & versatile. I have served this with pasta but also served it in the pots with mashed spud!

Needs more sauce and i really think it's enough for three servings - but very tasty and quick to do. Recommend Black farmer sausages as they are very 'meaty' and suit the mushrooms very well.

Really good - would use extra creme fraiche next time for more sauce... Served with some broccoli

My family loved this. My kids are not keen on mustard so used less than the recipe said but it still tasted fairly mustardy. The crispy bread on top made the dish for us. Served it with broccoli.

Cheap and cheerful dinner. Tasted really good too although I put a little bit too much mustard in. Also stirred in some peas for extra texture. Served with a mixed salad.

Changed this recipe quite a bit, as b/f doesn't like mushrooms so had asparagus and I only had soured cream in the house. But it tasted great so I give it 5/5. Flexible and flavourful. Definitely recommended.
