Throw away the packet - Devilled sausages

When my littlest frills  were babies I found myself trying to survive on very little sleep - my bestie who also had a newborn (but only one!) recommended to me the Continental devilled sausages packet because it was quick and a bit of a set and forget.  Put it in a jug, chop up a few things, throw them on the sausages and into the oven.  Easy.

And I did use this packet, for a few years actually but then I thought: 'Surely this can't be that hard to make yourself' (I was getting about 7 hours of sleep a night by this stage) so gave it a whirl.  Never looked back and sorry Mr Continental, won't be buying that packet again.

600g beef sausages
2 small onions, cut into rings or slices
1 red apple, peeled and diced
2 tb cornflour
1 tb brown sugar
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
2 tb tomato paste
1 tb dijon mustard
1 cup water
2 tb worcestershire sauce

Preheat oven to 200 degrees c
Place your sausages, apple and onion in a baking dish

In a jug mix remaining ingredients.

Pour over sausages
Bake for 20-30 minutes until sausages cooked, the sauce will thicken as it cooks.

Serve with potato mash and greens.

Leftover sausages delicious cold!!  My favourite way to eat sausages!  What's yours?

Yum, I didn't have dijon so I used wholegrain and I think I might have put too little sauce, however they are cooking in the oven as we speak, can't wait!

Liss you are brilliant, this was such a good meal. Both my girls loved the sausages and the apples and my husband loved the thick sauce and the onions. Only thing I should have done is cooked it a little longer but we were too impatient. I served it over rice with peas. I am not sure I am going to let my husband take the leftovers to work tomorrow!!! Seriously, I haven't gone wrong yet with your recipes, quick, easy, cheap and most importantly, delicious!

I just made this - it was fabulous! I used pork sausages that were flavoured with apple and cider and everyone ate it up!

Now I need some way of bookmarking recipes that I find and rating them so I can remember if we liked it. Any ideas?

Megan what I would suggest is getting a stumbleupon account - you stumble a page and you can rate it, and also have your own comments. That way you can amass loads of favourites from blogs and websites :) I have the stumble upon key (the little SU ) on the bottom of each post xx

Thank you so much for this. We rarely eat devilled sausages and when we do I use the packet because I didn't have my own recipe. I'll be cooking this tomorrow and filing it in my recipe book for future reference. I love how you can just stick in all in the oven too!

Sounds delish. I have a packet of sausages in the fridge I was going to grill but think i may try this recipe instead. Thanks for the recipe :-)

I've made something similar to this for years. Sausage Hotpot. It takes a little longer but there's no oven baking. Sausages are pre-grilled. I also have a devilled chicken wings recipe. I could email them to you if you'd like.

Thanks for that Liss, I have made sweet and sour from SFI not the jar and it is really nice. I will try this one too and perhaps Continental will notice that I stop buying the packet mix for this family fav.
