    Slice the potatoes (skins on if you prefer) thinly and boil until almost done. Drain and set aside.

    Cook sausages according to specifications, and slice into chunks. Combine them with the baked beans in a casserole dish. Layer the potatoes on top, covering everything underneath. depending on your casserole dish, you may need more potato.

    In a separate pan, heat the oil on medium heat, and fry the chopped onion until soft. Add 1/4 of the soymilk and once hot, whisk the flour in slowly. Then add the rest of the soymilk while stirring. Once gently bubbling, take the pan off the heat and add the remaining ingredients. Stir thoroughly, then pour the milky sauce over the potatoes and bake in a 220 degree centigrade (425 Fahrenheit) oven for 20-30 minutes, until brown and bubbly.

    Kids love this one, but I'll confess, I'm 22 and make this for myself all the time!
