Weightwatchers Casserole

If your looking for a meaty casserole on such a wintry day, here you go.

Well, when it comes to casseroles or stew we all know that every family will make it in their own way.  No 2 stews will ever be the same.  Now this casserole, im not sure if its a family thing or not or just one of our weird quirks?  I have to tell you though this is yummy.  It may sound strange but its really tasty. 

The key ingredients.  Liver and spice burgers.  I know its very strange but my grandmother started this one and yet it lives on. 

I was actually nervous about posting this one because theirs not that many people that i know that actually like liver, i don't think its in food fashion recently but its very cheap and not bad in terms of Weightwatchers Propoints.  Bake it in the oven with onions, mushrooms, spice burgers and gravy and its delicious.

This is actually great if you need to cook a meal for that meaty man or if your the man with a meat craving.  My other half loved although i think his sense of portion control may exceed that of a Weightwatchers portion.

Weightwatchers Propoints per Serving 6
Weightwatchers Propoints per recipe 25
Serves 4


400g of Liver
2 Spice Burgers halved
8 mushrooms sliced
1 onion thinly sliced
1 tin of chopped tomatoes
3 tsp of gravy (i used Aldi) Made up with enough water so that it is still thick enough
Salt and Black pepper
spray oil


Preheat the oven to gas mark 6.  In a large saucepan, mist with a little spray oil and place on a high heat.  When the pan is hot add liver and fry for about 2 minutes on each side and transfer to a large casserole dish. In the same dish, add the halved spiced burger and cook on both sides until they start to crisp.  Transfer the burgers to the casserole dish.

In the same saucepan add the sliced onions and allow to cook over a medium heat until they soften.  While their cooking, make up the gravy.

Add the mushrooms to the dish and the tomatoes.  Add the cooked onions and pour over the gravy.  Season with salt and ground black pepper.  Place in the oven for about 25 minutes. 

Serve with mash potatoes.

Enjoy the Niptuck way, so you don't have too!
