  1. First, cook off the sausages in a frying pan with some oil, making sure to cook them throughout. Once cooked, put them in a deep oven-proof dish.
  2. In the same frying pan, cook off the bacon, adding in the sliced onions and diced garlic. Once the bacon and onions are lightly fried, add them to your baking dish and turn your oven on to 180c fan or 200c.
  3. Pour the baked beans into the dish and season with pepper. Stir through to ensure the sausages, bacon, onions and beans are mixed thoroughly.
  4. Boil the kettle. Pour boiling water into with Idahoan Perfect Mash and mix until cooked. Then spread the mashed potatoes over the baking dish and top with your grated cheese.
  5. Put the baking dish in the oven and cook for 20 minutes.
  6. Serve to your ravenous family for a crowd-pleasing and simple dinner.
