  1. Heat ½ tbsp oil in a lidded casserole dish over a medium heat. Add the sausages and fry for 5-6 mins, turning frequently, until golden on all sides. Set aside on plate.
  2. Stir the leeks into the oil left in the pan, add a splash of water, turn the heat up to medium-high and fry for 8-10 mins until soft. Add the apples and fry for another 2-3 mins. Stir in the flour until it dissolves into the juices, then stir in the mustard and cider or apple juice. Add 250ml stock to the pan. Bring to a simmer, nestle in the sausages, cover and simmer for 10 mins, then remove the lid and simmer for 5 mins more until the sauce thickens slightly and the sausages have cooked through.
  3. Meanwhile, tip the butter beans (including the water in the tins) into the pan and heat over a medium-high heat until simmering and the butter beans have heated through. Drain, then mash well with 50ml of the remaining stock and some seasoning. Add the remaining stock once mashed for a smoother texture if you like. Serve in shallow bowls with the sausage casserole.
