This Devilled Sausages Recipe is the ultimate comfort food. Cooked in one pan with a rich and spicy tomato sauce, quick dinners have never tasted so good!

If you haven’t tried devilled sausages before you’re in for a treat! For those of you who have, but use store bought packet mixes, then you’re also in for a treat because these are 10000x times better πŸ™‚ (just saying).

What are Devilled Sausages?

Devilled sausages are essentially a quick sausage casserole in a sweet, spicy and slightly sticky sauce. They’re often cooked in one pan in a rich tomatoey/beefy sauce and served with fruit such as apples, pears or currants.

Devilled sausages are the answer to your week night dinners. Quick, easy and a good excuse to use up some cupboard staples.

Finding a traditional devilled sausage recipe is pretty tricky, in fact I don’t think I’ve ever seen the same recipe twice! So, here I offer you my version!

Devilled Sausages Ingredients

  • Pork Sausages
  • Beef Stock + Cornstarch (Cornflour)
  • Chopped Tomatoes
  • Onion
  • Apple
  • Garlic
  • Mustard
  • Worcestershire Sauce
  • Soy Sauce
  • Smoked Paprika
  • Cayenne Pepper
  • Thyme

How to make Devilled Sausages step by step

How to make Devilled Sausages

  1. Fry up your sausages until browned and just cooked through. Remove from pan.
  2. Fry your onion & apple until golden, add your garlic to fry for a further minute, then pour in your beef stock + cornstarch and chopped tomatoes.
  3. Add your smoked paprika, cayenne pepper (to taste), mustard, Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, thyme and seasoning and simmer until thickened and the sausages are cooked throughout.

Yup, that simple!

Devilled sausages in the slow cooker are also a great idea! You can even sub the pork sausages with veggie sausages to make a hearty vegetarian meal too.

What to serve with Devilled Sausages

For me it’s always gotta be a nice dollop of creamy mashed potatoes. Bangers and mash is such a glorious combo and adding a rich tomatoey sauce to the equation is just a foodgasm waiting to happen.

I’ve also eaten these with rice before which works perfectly and for a low carb option consider using adding cauliflower rice!

Either way, a nice sprinkle of fresh parsley looks and tastes fab πŸ™‚

So for a new meal to add to your rotation dinners give these yummy devilled sausages a go! Whether you’ve tried them before or have never heard of them, you’re bound to fall in love with this delicious homemade version!

Equipment:

  • Large Pan & Wooden Spoon
  • Jug (for stock)
  • Sharp Knife & Chopping Board
  • Serving Spoon

Ingredients (check list):

  • 12 Pork Sausages
  • 1 cup / 250ml Beef Stock
  • 1x 14oz/400g can of Chopped Tomatoes
  • 2 tbsp Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1 tbsp Mustard (English or Dijon)
  • 1 medium Onion, sliced
  • 1 Apple, cored, peeled and sliced (see notes)
  • 1 clove Garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp Cornstarch/Cornflour
  • 1 tsp Dark Soy Sauce
  • 3/4 tsp Smoked Paprika
  • 1/4 tsp Cayenne Pepper (or to taste)
  • 2-3 sprigs of Fresh Thyme
  • Salt & Black Pepper, to taste
  • Olive Oil, for frying

Instructions:

  • Fry sausages in a dash of oil over medium heat until browned on the outside and cooked through the centre. Remove from pan and place to one side.
  • Fry onions in the leftover sausage fat until they begin to soften, then add in apple. Continue frying until both begin turning golden, then add in garlic and fry for 1-2mins longer.
  • In a jug, combine beef stock and cornstarch/cornflour until lump free. Pour in the pan with tomatoes and stir until smooth and evenly combined.
  • Add in smoked paprika, cayenne pepper, thyme, Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce and mustard. Check for seasoning/spice and adjust accordingly.
  • Add sausages back to the pan (with any juices in the bowl) and simmer until the sauce has thickened and the sausages are piping hot all the way through.

Quick 1 min demo!

Notes:

a) Apple -Β You can use red or green apples depending on your flavour preference. Sweeter varieties of apple will balance out the spice in the sauce and also balance out the deep tangy flavours of the Worcestershire sauce and mustard. Green apples with add to the powerful flavours in the sauce. You can also use a combo of both!
b) What to serve with Devilled Sausages - For me it's always gotta be a dollop of creamy mash. But rice also works perfectly. As does a big chunk of buttered bread.
c) Storage/Leftovers/Make Ahead - Allow to completely cool then tightly cover in the fridge for 2-3days. I usually reheat back on the stove (adding a splash of water to loosen up the sauce if needed) on a low heat until the sausages are piping hot through the centre again. Upon reheating, the apple slices might go slightly mushy, so if you want to avoid that just remove them and stir them in at the last second to heat them up.

    This was an absolute banger (pun intended)!

    My partner really doesn’t do sweet with savoury but even she ate this and went back for more. It’s sort of barbecue-saucy, very easy to cook and absolutely delicious. I can definitely see the bairns getting into this when they’re a bit older.

    I was feeling a bit rice-y so went for microwave golden veg rice as the accompaniment. Great no fuss dinner.

    I love this recipe, quite tangy with a bit of heat to it and very flavoursome! Will never use a packet mix again. I only had beef sausages and for the two of us the amount of sauce was plentiful and lovely with mashed potato. Yum, one to have on rotation for sure!

      I haven’t made this in either unfortunately! If I was to do it in the slow cooker, I’d brown off the sausages in a pan then add everything in the slow cooker for 3-4hours on high or 6-7 on low. Again though I haven’t tested this myself, just guidance πŸ™‚

    Just made this for my family and everyone enjoyed it! One mistake I made was waiting too long before pouring the stock/cornflour mix in. All the cornflour had settled to the bottom and didn’t get poured in, and I didn’t realise until I was wondering why the sauce wasn’t thickening.

    Hi, just wondering if I should pre cook the sausages if I’m using the slow cooker? And how long in the slow cooker would you recommend? πŸ™‚

      Hey Jade, I’ve never actually made this in the slow cooke, so can’t 100% tell you the outcome. I would definitely brown the sausages, just for extra flavour (don’t need to be cooked all the way through). At an educated guess I’d cook on high for 2-4hours or low for 6-8. I’d also leave the apple out until 30mins (high) or 1 hour (low) otherwise it’ll turn to mush. Hope this helps! Chris x

        As an Aussie this is a weeknight favourite! Gave this one a go with a bit of my own flare, I like mine a bit sweet so I added 2 Tbsp BBQ sauce and same of ketchup. Replaced the apples with carrots (wife isn’t a fan of hot fruit) Now here is the absolute GAME CHANGER i added 100ml of Tawny Port to the stock omg so rich! No cornstarch just simmered it down longer around 1 hour. Wonderful thank you
