For the filling:
  • 2 tbsp sunflower oil
  • 1 onion, peeled and sliced
  • 454g RSPCA Assured pork sausages
  • 2 x 415g tins of baked beans
  • 1 x 227g tin of chopped tomatoes
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • Salt and pepper
For the mash:
  • 1 kg potatoes, peeled and cut into large chunks
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 75ml milk
  • Salt and pepper
  • 50g Cheddar cheese, grated


  1. Put the potatoes in a large pan of salted, boiling water
  2. Simmer for about 15 minutes or until tender
  3. Drain and return to the pan to dry completely
  4. Add the butter and milk and mash until smooth and fluffy
  5. Add half the cheese and seasoning and mix thoroughly
  6. Heat the oil in a deep-frying pan
  7. Cut each sausage into bite-sized pieces
  8. Cook the onions until they begin to soften and then add the sausages
  9. Cook until browned all over
  10. Add the beans, tomatoes, Worcestershire sauce and cook for a further 5 minutes
  11. Spoon the sausage mix into an ovenproof dish
  12. Spoon or pipe the mash on top and sprinkle with the remaining cheese

If eating immediately, finish under a preheated grill until the top is golden.

If you have made your Cowboy Pie in advance, preheat the oven to 180C, fan 160C, Gas mark 4. Cook for 35-45 minutes, or until it is heated through, and the top is golden brown.

This pie combines all our childhood favourites; sausages, beans, mashed potatoes and cheese. You can also use sausages with different flavours and explore different types of baked beans, such as mixed beans in chilli sauce, five beans in tomato sauce or baked beans in a curry sauce. It can also be prepared ahead of time, so perfect for busy family lives.
