One of my favourite dishes..Scottish Stovies..

Scottish Stovies is one of my favourite dishes, I used to eat this as a child and was cooked by my late Scottish father. It is a very simple dish, but full of flavour and feels very wholesome, especially on a Winter's evening.

There is a rumour that the word Stovies comes from the French "étouffée" to steam.

Here in photos are the easy steps to cooking Stovies...please give it a go, and let me know know what you think.

                                        Fry onions and sausages together


                        Once browned add chicken/beef stock, it doesn't matter which

                           Cook in stock for approx 20 mins or until sausages cooked

                            Then add potatoes or even tinned potatoes works fine

                                 Cook until the potatoes have warmed through

                                     add cheese until melts and then serve



  1. This looks yummy and simple to fix.
    Are you going to play along with Dreaming of France today? I hope so.
    Here’s my Dreaming of France meme

  2. The potatoes in teh stovies are supposed to break down to almost a "mash" like consistency and "cheese" ?????? Never had cheese in Sotvies in my puff !!! :)

    1. This is my twist on stovies, cheese added for texture, really delicious you should try it.
