  1. Step 1

    Heat the oil in a large deep ovenproof frying pan over medium heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring, for 5 mins or until onion softens. Add the sausages and cook, stirring with a wooden spoon to break into lumps, for 5 mins or until browned and cooked through. Add the beans, tomato, kale, mixed vegetables and chopped thyme. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 10 mins or until the mixture thickens slightly and the kale wilts. Season.

  2. Step 2

    Preheat grill on high. Sprinkle the sausage mixture with cheese. Cook under the grill for 5 mins or until the cheese melts and is golden brown.
  3. Step 3

    Top with thyme sprigs and serve with rocket and sourdough.

Clever storage: This cheesy bake is so delicious reheated the next day, so why not make a double batch? Or, to freeze portions, set aside to cool completely, then transfer to airtight containers. Freeze for up to 3 months.
