28 Delicious Ways To Cook Big Fat Sausages

28 Delicious Ways To Cook Big Fat Sausages

Everyone enjoys a good sausage!

But not just any sausage either. I’m fussy about my sausages. I want it big and long enough..a bit fat but I don’t want it too fat.

If you can, support your local butcher. They have the best sausages! *wink wink* Not only will you pay about the same as your local supermarket, but they are often tastier and made with love.

So, this is how I enjoy them – delicious ways to cook big fat sausages. Have some!

1. Sausage Pepper Rice Skillet

I love a good sausage skillet. If I have some leftover rice and I want a really filling meal, this sausage pepper rice skillet is perf!

2. Slow cooker Sausages in Onion Gravy

The slowcooker is a great way to cook sausages… It is really a ‘set and forget’ type recipe.  Serve it with a cheesy mashed potato and some nice steamed greens… nom nom nom nom nom…. Use thick sausages for this recipe – it makes a difference! It’s not the size – but the thickness that matters.

3. Sticky Sausages

I use those little chipolata sausages for this recipe – but you can just cut a normal sausage in half.  Yes there is a fair amount of sugar in this recipe – but for a ‘sometimes food’ – it won’t hurt them! Good sausages are always sticky!

4. Sausage Stroganoff

Just like the traditional beef stroganoff recipe, but with sausages!  So you still get that creamy, garlicky sauce infused with mushrooms, but it is a much more frugal option.  No stroganoff recipe is complete without crispy chips!  Just saying!

5. Sausage Kale Potato Casserole

If you are into kale and all (or what I call it – seaweed and snot) – this is a nice recipe.  Personally, I think spinach is easier, more widely available and I think (but don’t quote me on that) that it is actually heathier than kale….

6. Sausages in Pastry

The ultimate recipe in ‘I really can’t be bothered to do much for dinner’.  Been eating this since I was a kid – it is so easy and yummy!

7. Slow Cooker Coconut Curry Sausages

Yes it might look like something the cat dragged in, but it is seriously tasty. Coconut milk adds loads of sweetness to the dish, and use use as little or as much curry powder as your kids can stand!

8. Toad in a Hole

Think of sausages and gravy all cooked in a pancake.  There you have Toad in a Hole, popular in the UK, I think it could become popular here in Straya too!

9. Simple Curried Sausages

An oldie but a goodie.  My Mum came over one day and made curried sausages – and she boiled the sauages first, then removed the skin – and they were totally amazing.  Of course I ain’t got time for dat!  But they are yummy with mashed potato!
