This recipe for Sausage Casserole is one of the first recipes I added to my collection here on Glutarama, it’s quite warm cozy thought to think that a family favourite became one of the first steps on my blogging journey and now, years later it’s one of my most popular posts neck-a-neck with my Dumplings recipe using my very own gluten free suet.

What gluten free sausages can I use for this sausage casserole with wine?
Where in the world are you? Obviously here in the UK I am only familiar with the British Sausage options that are safe for Coeliac diets.
The good news is that the choice is getting wider and wider for us. With cheaper supermarkets like Aldi and Lidl now choosing to ditch the gluten in their sausages we don’t have to rely on solely gluten free brands. This too has brough the price down or at the very least stopped them from going up as we now have a price war to be the best, cheapest gluten free sausage products.
For many of my recipes I opt for own brand sausages. The ‘taste the different’ or ‘finest’ options pretty much all state they are gluten free. This is excellent news as with premium products you also get posh flavours too meaning you could have pork and apple cider sausages or caramelised onion sausages in your casserole too.
Always check the labels though, updated or new improved recipes can often mean another allergen has been added, I’m yet to see a previously gluten free sausage go back to adding WHEAT but there’s always a first time.
Different ways to serve Sausage Casserole
The clear winner in this family is to have Sausage Casserole with a pile of mash high enough to hide behind! We always add veggies too as unlike other casseroles this does not have vegetables added to the pot.
I can no longer eat potato so I certainly would not be having this with mash but it’s also delicious with crusty bread so you can mop up the gravy juices at the end. If you’re interested the bread in these images is in fact from a Bakels packet mix which I’m sad to say is no longer available for customers to buy online or in the supermarkets however, there are plenty of crusty loaves but the likes of Warburton and B-Free now including frozen rolls by Schar.

What stock cubes are gluten free?
I always use Knorr Rich Beef Stock pots in this chilli con carne but there are other versions of stock by Knorr that are also gluten free. I find the stock pots are often on multi-buy special offer so only buy them when this is the case.
NOTE: gravy pots are NOT gluten free.
Other stock pots are OXO who now have gluten free stock pots (not cubes, these are not currently gluten free). Kallo do gluten free stock cubes and granules and Marigold make gluten free and vegan Bouillon.
Want to add hidden vegetables?
Okay, firstly, this is more of an adult recipe given the fact it has wine in it so I have to ask myself why do you need to hide vegetables?
Then I’m reminded of my brother-in-law who goes into shock every time he sees ‘GREEN’ on his plate. I may have exaggerated a bit there, but seriously he’s not a vegetable fan. So, if you too have such an adult that you want to improve their veggie intake then I strongly recommend you head over to my Mild Chilli Con Carne with hidden vegetables recipe as it gives you all the tips necessary to hide a rainbow of goodness in your mid-week meals.
Other recipes that are similar to my Sausage Casserole
So before I leave you to read on with the original post, you may (or may not) be interested in a few other sausagey recipes. Sausage Casserole is hard to beat granted but how about; Sausage Roll with Mustard and Chutney, or Sausage Plait or Sausage Pasta Bake
I’ve also added links to some delicious recipes I’ve found on these fellow foodies pages; there’s this delicious Moroccan Lamb Sausage and Chickpea Tagine by Easy Peasy Foodie. I’ve not yet come across gluten free lamb sausages but that’s not to say they don’t exist, please drop a comment below if you’ve come across any and where you found them please. Otherwise, I’d be tempted to make Eb’s recipe with some taste the difference beef sausages.
Another delicious recipe not to overlook is this Sausage Gnocchi Bake over on Fab Food 4 All, now of course normal gnocchi is not gluten free but there are free from versions on the market and we’ve personally had this one from Difatti before and can recommend it highly.
Too much sausage, had enough? Nah!
Save money and make this sausage casserole in a slow cooker
We can all agree that the cost of living is getting higher and we’re all feeling the pinch. Therefore I’ve added the option to cook this gluten free sausage casserole with wine in the slow cooker rather than a conventional oven or even the hob.
Slow cookers are also an energy-efficient cooking appliance – they use just a little more energy than a traditional light bulb, and you can leave your food to cook slowly throughout the day while you’re at work or when you need to get on with other things.USwitch – Energy efficient cooking
How to keep Sausage Casserole leftovers
One last tip for this Gluten Free Sausage Casserole recipe or any of my family dinner recipes (such as my Mild Chilli Con Carne with hidden vegetables or Stew and Dumplings), I use Igluu Meal Prep storage containers to portion up leftovers and freeze…makes life a heck of a lot easier later down the line.

Gluten Free Sausage Casserole with Wine
- 12 gluten free sausages that's 2x packs of 6 sausages
- 8 bacon I use smoked bacon rashers
- 1 Knorr beef stock pot
- 400 g tin of baked beans you could use beans in water such as cannellini or borlotti
- 500 ml passata
- 3 tbsp tomato puree
- 1 tsp sage
- 200 ml red wine
- Preheat oven to a low heat of 150°C | 130°C fan | 300°F | Gas 2 NOTE: for a slow cooker simply set the cooker to low and cook for 3hrs, leave the lid off for the last 20mins to help the gravy reduce and intensify in flavour.
- Brown off the sausages first in the casserole dish (if using a cast iron dish) or in a separate frying pan (using a separate pan will also reduce fat content as you can drain it before adding to the casserole dish).
- Add the bacon and gently brown this off too. Add this to the casserole pot if cooking separately.
- Throw all the other ingredients into the pot; the passata, beans, tomato puree, sage and wine and lastly fill the baked bean can up with water and add that too.
- Give the casserole a good stir and pop into the oven for approx. 3hrs
- Remember to stir once in a while to prevent the casserole from sticking to the bottom or sides of the pot.
- Once cooked serve with vegetables of your choice, mash or just a lump of crusty bread to mop up the rich tomato and wine gravy.
