I am often fond of a good, heady hotpot in the winter, but when there's often little time to cook with my schedule, I have, with experience, established a quick way of rustling one up within an hour. All it requires is some very basic ingredients from the stock cupboard but the end result is the ultimate in heartwarming comfort food.
For the Hotpot
- 1 onion (chopped finely)
- 1 tin baked beans (with sausages)
- 1 beef stock cube
- 3 tablespoons worcestershire sauce
For the Topping
- 1 potato (sliced mediumly)
- parmesan cheese (grated)
No Fuss Hotpot for One is a community recipe submitted by Mrtokyo and has not been tested by Nigella.com so we are not able to answer questions regarding this recipe.
In a medium sized casserole dish, stir together the baked beans and sausages with the chopped onion and Worcestershire sauce, and crumble in the OXO cube so that everything is well mixed together.
Ensure the hotpot mixture is evened out, then on top of this with the slices of potato so that it is sufficiently covered.
Then, generously grate the parmesan cheese on top of the sliced potato (or you can sprinkle on ready grated parmesan cheese using a teaspoon if you wish to save even more time).
Put the casserole dish into the oven on 220°C (Gas Mark 7) for 45 minutes, and serve immediately. I usually find sprouts and carrots are a good combination with this but feel free to serve with whatever vegetables you prefer or (even better) on it's own.
