Bangers and Beans Dutch Oven Style

A pack of sausages dug out from the back of the freezer was tonight's dinner, as it is a lovely pleasant evening we thought we would light the outdoor fire for cooking and dig out the Dutch Oven
So we chopped up a few potatoes, red pepper, mushrooms onions and garlic into the Dutch Oven with the sausages a drizzle of olive oil seasoning 
after browning added some water popped on the lid, after about 10 mins added some baked beans moved it to a cooler part of the fire to finish cooking
It was delicious served with bread and butter.
Cooking outdoors is something we both enjoy and do throughout the year, it was one of the reasons we built a brick oven outside, and its something we plan to rebuild at the next place. We have even been out in the snow cooking its great fun.

  1. We moved around a lot as kids as well so I feel for you . We lived in flats round London and there was nowhere safe to play out so it was hard. Thirteen schools later and I'm not that messed up, honest! lol x

  2. We lived in rural areas so there was never anyone around to play with, just me and my shadow. :-)
