  • 2 onions, halved
  • 6 pork sausages
  • chicken stock

Peel 6-8 potatoes. Using a vegetable peeler, peel the skin away from the potatoes, always make sure that you push the peeler away from you as you peel.


Cut the potatoes into thin slices, using the claw cutting technique.


Peel the onions, sit an onion half flat side down and using the claw cutting technique cut into thin slices. Repeat with the other halves.


Layer the onions and potatoes in a casserole dish.


Squeeze the sausage meat out of the sausage skins and roll into balls, you will make about 4 balls from each sausage. Wash your hands really well after


Put the sausage meatballs on top of the onions and potatoes. Wash your hands with warm water and soap.


Add herbs if you have any and cover with stock. Cover with a lid and ask an adult to put into the oven for about 50 minutes to 1 hour, until the potatoes are tender and the sausages are cooked. Season to taste with freshly ground black pepper.
