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
- Worcestershire Sauce
- Soy Sauce
- Smoked Paprika
- Cayenne Pepper
How to make Devilled Sausages
- Fry up your sausages until browned and just cooked through. Remove from pan.
- 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.
- 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 🙂
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!
