Slow Cooked Golden Sausages

A few weeks ago I started to go through Mum’s box of the Women’s Weekly Recipe Cards that she had collected in the early 80’s. There are so many old style recipes that I am dying to try.

At the front of the box was a bunch of hand written recipes. It’s sad to think that I may not have hand written recipes to hand down to my children.
One recipe stood out “Golden Sausages”. Sausages are such an economical meat to include into our weekly meal plan but it can get quite boring having them the same way over and over again.
The flavours of this dish are a little sweet, a little sour and little just right for a week night meal.
I had this in the slow cooker while I was at work and it was so nice to come home to dinner already made.
10 Sausages of choice (I used thin beef sausages)
1 Onion, sliced
1 Large Carrot, sliced
2 1/2 Tbs Plain Flour
1 Tbs Tomato Sauce
2 Tbs Vinegar
1 Tbs Sugar
2 Cups Boiling Water
Salt and pepper
1. In a jug place all the sauce ingredients and mix well. It will be runny don’t worry as the cooking process will thicken it.
2. In the slow cooker place the sausages, onion and carrots. Pour the sauce over them and turn it on.
3. Leave to cook for 8 hours on low of 4 hours on high.
4. This can also be baked in the oven the same way in a casserole dish for 1 1/2 hours on 180 degrees Celsius.
It is ready when the sauce has thickened.
Optional: stir through a can of rinsed cannelloni beans and a cup of frozen peas.
Serve with mashed potato or rice.
Serves 4-6
Double ingredients for leftovers.

    I’ve not heard of Golden Sausages before Amanda. Sounds interesting. There was another one going around using tomato sauce and bbq sauce. can’t remember the name of it but its tasty. You just have to remember to line your baking dish or crockpot because the sauce can burn.

      Unfortunately I made this recipe exactly to your recipe, only to find out it is actually 2 cups of boiling water not tablespoons. You might want to change that. Thanks.

        Thanks Di, I have fixed it up.

    Without a doubt, the BEST sausage casserole we’ve ever eaten. My daughter even had seconds! My husband did a brilliant job of cooking. We will be adding this as a regular to our dinner menu. 🙂 Thanks so much for sharing.

    Hi, I want to make this but should it be two cups of boiling water or a little less since it will be in the slow cooker?

    • Amanda September 14, 2017 at 6:51 pm #

      Yes, it thickens as flour has been added and makes a nice sauce to go over mashed potato.
