  1. Prick the potatoes all over with a fork, then microwave on high* for 7 mins, turning halfway, or until cooked through. Add the mini corn cobs halfway through; microwave to pack instructions.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a frying pan over a medium-high heat. Fry the sliced sausages for 3 mins or until browned all over.
  3. Add the baked beans and barbecue sauce, reduce the heat to medium and cook for 2-3 mins, stirring occasionally, to warm through. Split the potatoes in half and divide the butter between them to melt. Spoon over the cowboy beans and serve with the corn cobs alongside.
