Prep Time

10 minutes

Cooking Time

30 minutes


2 adults and 2 kids

Recipe Ingredients

  • 30 ml   SPAR margarine
  • 30 ml   SPAR sunflower or canola oil
  • 4 large potatoes, unpeeled and par-boiled until tender but fir
  • 1 med  onion, peeled then sliced into half-rings
  • 2   SPAR Cheese Grillers with onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 can   SPAR baked beans in tomato sauce
  • 30 ml SPAR Mustard Sauce
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • fresh dhania for garnish

Recipe Method

  1. Cut the par-cooked potatoes into 1cm cubes. In a large frying pan, heat the oil and margarine together. Toss in the cubed potato and onion, and cook over medium heat, shaking the pan rather than stirring to keep the ingredients loose, until the potato crispens somewhat.
  2. Add in the sausage slices and heat through well.
  3. Add the baked beans, sweet mustard sauce, with salt and pepper to taste. Shake the pan to combine ingredients and allow to heat and bubble.
  4. Sprinkle on a handful of chopped dhania, and serve immediately.

Hints & Tips

Do not make in advance and reheat, as you will then need to stir the mixture which will result in the baked beans forming an unwanted stodgy consistency.
Be sure to get as many slices from just the two sausages as you can, to serve the purpose of a budget meal.  Freeze the remaining sausages from the pack for using another time.
Using SPAR Vienna sausages instead of the frankfurters, would bring down the cost of the meal further.
