I adapted this and used vegetarian sausages, added lentils and baked in the oven for ease and it worked well. The mushrooms and olives give a really good flavour. Will definitely be trying it again.

It was ok, but not my favourite sausage hotpot. Quick and easy but some of the mushrooms could be changed for beans or another veg.
I wouldn't use reduced fat sausages as my butcher's prizewinning pork and herb ones are unbeatable! I would prefer to use fewer sausages and more veg if low fat but good flavour is your preference.

This is a firm family favourite. We always have it with Yorkshire puddings. Won't have it any other way now. Yum!

I have made this a few times now. It really makes u appreciate the different quality in sausages. I like to use olives stuffed with jalopenos.

For so few calories, this dish was delicious!

I cooked this tonight for our dinner, omitting the mushrooms as I can't eat them. For so few and simple ingredients, most of which will be in your store cupboard, this was very quick and easy to make and everyone said how tasty it was. It smells wonderful, while it's cooking. If you aren't feeding small children, you could add chilli to spice it up a bit or separate it into two small pans and add chilli for the adults. Will definitely be cooking this again as a quick after school supper. 9 out of 10 from my kids!!

Not sure why everyone is so positive about this dish. Ok, but certainly a long way from a 5 star!

Made this earlier today as it looked cheap and easy to make! WOW! What a recipe. One pot, simple to make, super low calorie if you buy (like i did) some healthy sausages! It makes 4 decent portions, which i've tubbed up ready to add some veg and potatos too as evening meals for my next 4 late shifts.

I wasnt expecting it to taste as good as it does, really rich and strong flavours from very simple and minimal ingredients. Will be making this again and again i bet!

My family and I love this recipe but I do make a couple of changes. I don't use olives because no one except me really likes them, and I add a tin of baked beans which thickens the sauce sightly and adds some bulk. Delicious! Serve with warm crusty bread to soak up the lovely gravy :)

Easy and delicious.

Served with lazy champ mash (didn't even peel the spuds) and we all devoured it. Stored well for next day, too.

Really tasty and easy to make. I think it could have done with a bit more strong stock to make the sauce richer, but I'll be cooking it again.

Re the saturated fat content, you could adapt it to make it lower fat by forming turkey mince into little meatballs and replacing the olives with lower fat vegetables. The sauce is fairly low fat being tomato based and is very tasty.
