Curried Sausage Casserole

Darren loves curried sausages and had been asking me for years to make some.  I didn't have a recipe so after doing some research I made up my own to suit our tastes.  I love using my slow cooker for this recipe as it's quick and easy to make.

1 x 420 g tin of diced tomatoes
1/2 packet of french onion soup mix
1 teaspoon of curry powder
1 stick of celery, finely diced ( can be from the freezer )
1 - 2 carrots peeled and sliced thinly
1 1/2 cups of frozen beans
6 small mushrooms sliced
season to taste with salt, pepper, onion flakes ( or fresh ), dried parsley ( or fresh )

2 cups of water
6 sausages
cornflour and 1/4 cup of water

Place tomatoes, veggies, curry, soup mix and seasonings into the slow cooker.

Cover ingredients with the 2 cups of water and mix together.
Cook on high for 4 - 6 hours or medium for 6 - 8 hours.
Half an hour before serving, cook the sausages under the grill, in a fry pan or on the bbq until dark brown ( good flavour ). 

Cut the sausages into approx. 1 cm slices and place in the slow cooker.  Give it a good stir.
Thicken with the cornflour and 1/4 cup of cold water.  
Serve with mash or on toast.

Serves 4 - 5 people.


*  Six sausages is plenty for this recipe as they stretch a long way when thinly sliced.

*  The casserole can be frozen.

*  Other vegetables can be added or deleted to suit your tastes and what you have on hand.

Megan made the sausage casserole in this photo.  She likes to add chunks of potato to the slow cooker at the beginning of the cooking process.


  1. Thanks, will give this a go tonight!

  2. Sounds like a very flavoursome and frugal recipe Wendy, thank you for sharing :)


  3. Wendy I will try this. Andy loves sausages and loves curry so it should be a perfect recipe for him! In winter I like to go old fashioned sausages and onion and gravy served with mashed potato and carrots, peas etc. I brown the onions and sausages in a fry pan then add water and thicken it with brown gravy. Let it simmer... it gets thick and a good color. Very simple but everyone loves it.
    Today I am making sausage rolls. Also it is a lovely sunny day so the washing is all out on the line before the next lot of rain! Hope you are having a good week! xxx

  4. I'm doing sausages & veg with gravy tonight, but will try this next time. Thanks for sharing - Tina xx

  5. Hi Wendy,
    Thanks so much for this recipe, sounds delicious. I will have to give it a go.
    Enjoy your week,xxx

  6. How yummy looking is this! I recall my Mum making something similar and I haven't had it in years and years. Thanks Wendy....Mimi xxx

  7. Made it in the crockpot with potatoes and loved it.
    Used a chicken stock cube in place of the French Onion soup as didn't have any.
    Thanks for the recipe.

    1. I'm glad you liked it. Most of my recipes can be changed around to suit people's tastes and what they have on hand.

  8. I like to add a tablespoon of strawberry jam in ours,noticed it on a recipe on kidspot and gave it a try - done it ever since, my son (5 yrs old) loves it :)
