Cannellini beans in Sausage casserole

Hi Everyone

I am going to make a saussage casserole to use up some sausages. I have a recipe which involves cooking the casserole at 150 degrees for an hour.

I would like to add tinned cannellini beans, but I don't know if I add them at the beginning, and cook them for an hour if they will turn to mush?

...and if so when should I add them?

Can anyone help?
Many thanks in advance

Does the recipe call for beans, or are you adding them as an "extra"? What are the other ingredients?

And are you sure you cook the casserole at "150 degrees"? Because that's not "cooking"; that's barely even warming. Heck, I don't think my oven even goes that low.

I'd add them at the beginning of the cooking process...

people who use the term, tinned, are usually not from the US, I think 150* may be celcius

Hi Breezycooking

Thanks for replying



I am adding the beans as extra and missing the leek because I don't like it.
I have used this recipe once before and it turned out nice. I have never used beans before though so I don't have a clue!

The ingrients are sausage, onion, carrot, leek which I am missing out, beef stock, red wine, rosemary, flour

I just checked it again and it is 150 degrees celsius, maybe you are thinking of fahrenheit which would be 302 degrees??

: )

I still would not add canned (or tinned) beans to a casserole that's going to be baked for an hour without knowing what the other ingredients are. If the casserole has a lot of liquid or ingredients that will exude a lot of liquid, those beans will quite possibly be nothing but mush after an hour.

Yup - I was thinking Fahrenheit. Twenty lashes for me on not picking up on the "tinned" reference - especially since I have a friend who lives in England - lol!!

That said, your idea of adding beans to this casserole is absolutely PERFECT!! However, I'd gently fold in the drained beans during the last 1/2 hour of cooking. That's all the "cooking" they'll need & will give them more than enough time to absorb the other flavors. Cannellini beans in particular have a very thin skin.

Do come back & let us know how it turned out. Sounds delicious.
