  1. Boil the potatoes for 10 minutes, drain and return to the pan. Add the butter and shake the potatoes in the pan to distribute it. Leave to one side.
  2. Put oven on to heat 180°C fan oven/200°C/Gas 6.
  3. Cook the sausages in a little oil, using a frying pan or wok. When the
    sausages are brown, remove from pan and cut into bite-size pieces.
  4. Fry the onion and garlic for 2–3 minutes in the same pan. Add the leek and cook for a further 2–3 minutes.
  5. Put the vegetable stock cube in a mug and fill up to 1/2 with boiling water. Add to the frying pan and bring to the boil.
  6. Blend the cornflour with a little cold water and then add to the frying pan, stirring well. The sauce should thicken slightly. Season well with salt and pepper.
  7. Put the sausages back into the pan and stir. Pour into a casserole dish. Pile the potatoes on the top and sprinkle over with grated cheese. Bake for 25–30 minutes until the cheese has browned.
