A simple recipe for a hearty partridge and mushroom casserole, cooked in the slow cooker.
Large baking potato
Small tin of beans
Scrub potato clean and pat it dry. Rub all over in olive oil. Cook for 2 hours in the oven at 200 degrees Celsius.
When serving, cut a cross in the top and push down the four “corners” so the middle pops up, and then add a knob of butter to the centre and this will make the potato soft and gooey. Warm up the beans and add as a topping.
Serve with salad.
