I made this the other night and I added 3 tbsp of Green’s gravy mixed with 3/4 cup of water & 1 tbsp minced garlic to the mixture about halfway through and it was so good. I am definitely going to try it with diced chuck steak next time.

Hi Lisa, Yes T=tablespoon and t=teaspoon ๐Ÿ™‚

Just checking cause Iโ€™m unsure, in the recipe it mentions – 1T Worcestershire sauce, presume thatโ€™s tablespoon and not teaspoon? Thank you ๐Ÿ˜Š

Very tasty, even the kids had a good go at it even though they sent keen on trying new things

We loved this when we made it and put some small portions in the freezer and it worked so well. Tastes delicious! We edited a couple of things to suit our tastes but it was awesome. Thank you for sharing this recipe

I make this for my kids in their thermos. They love having a warm meal for lunch when itโ€™s winter.

Soooo easy. Everything in the slow cooker and a warming hearty meal that tasted great. Even my teenager who is a pain went back for seconds. This will definitely make it into dinner rotation.

That’s exactly right as you have it Tara ๐Ÿ™‚

So Iโ€™ve just put this on and so excited but after reading comments, Iโ€™m questioning if the French onion soup mix was supposed to be added the way I added itโ€ฆ
So I put the soup, French onion soup mix (dry), Worcestershire sauce and water into a big bowl, mixed it all together than poured over the sausages and veggiesโ€ฆ correct?

Lisa we actually take this one camping. I cook it in the slow cooker as usual, freeze it in a large tub (which doubles then as ice for the esky) … then we reheat it over the fire in the cast iron camp oven for an easy camp dinner with fresh bread rolls ๐Ÿ™‚

I love this in my slow cooker, any ideas how I would cook it in a camp oven?

Had this last night for dinner and my goodness is was so delicious! Served with a mix of potato, sweet potato and pumpkin mash! Kids absolutely loved it, even my 6 month old enjoyed what she could eat! Definitely making this one a regular!!

Made this today really yum but I’d change the potatoes to kumara (sweet potato) or take out the potatoes and have mashed potatoes instead just to soak up the sauce.


May 31, 2022

Made this the other night. I also added some butternut pumpkin and zucchini plus some salt and pepper. Was a hit fussy son ate a little and granddaughter like it as well.


May 31, 2022

I did this one yesterday. So looking forward to leftovers for lunch today. So quick, easy and perfect for a cold day. Followed the recipe.


May 30, 2022

100% winner in my household. Swapped out peas for corn as I had no peas. Nothing beats a warm hearty bowl of snag hot pot


May 29, 2022

Dinner tonight with mash
Fresh sesame rolls on the side

Fiona Southwell

I cooked this for dinner last night and it was absolutely amazing


May 19, 2022

Iโ€™ve made this a few times now and every time I make it itโ€™s amazing!
Cheap to make, makes a lot and is delicious!
I served mine with mash and some hot buttered dinner rolls to mop up the sauce after itโ€™s delicious and also makes the house smell yummy all day
Only thing I did different was I added a continental beef stock pot and cooked for 7.5 hours on low
My kids loved it too โญ๏ธโญ๏ธโญ๏ธโญ๏ธโญ๏ธ

Love this meal,๐Ÿ’œ I’m making this tomorrow night for mothers day dinner. I’ll be using frankfurts chopped and no skin and i love using tin potatoes but everything else as recipe. This way i cook on low for around 3hrs so its also a go to if i run out of time ๐Ÿค—

Cheryl Rogers

April 30, 2022

made this with buffalo sausages, … goodness meee yarm


April 24, 2022

Yum yum yum!!!!! Made as per recipe and used beef chipolatas.

I guess you could Calina ๐Ÿ™‚ Maybe add them a little later though since they are already cooked


April 3, 2022

Could i use cocktail franks instead? i could remove the skin – i have them in my freezer with no plans for them.

Diane Cooper

January 18, 2022

We loved it, make this again.
Had visitors when this should have been coming out of the Slow Cooker so maybe the gravy was a little less than intended will differently be making this again. I served this with rice but would maybe try mashed potato next time.
We will have the left overs tonight on toast. YUM

I made this dish for the first time last night and it was delicious. Iโ€™ve enjoyed reading the other reviews which had great suggestions for substitutes so next time I make it, Iโ€™m going to try cream of chicken soup mix instead of French onion which will hopefully reduce the salty taste. Iโ€™m vision impaired and found it super easy to make. I submitted a photo of my finished product on the facebook page as well with a little help from a friend. ๐Ÿ˜‹

Dani Wood

I made this with chipolatas instead, but this was delicious!!


September 8, 2021

Love this one, only thing I do differently is add more vegetables or different ones depending on what I have.


September 6, 2021

I live alone and hate cooking everyday so freeze stuff. I have made many variations with sausages but they always lacked somethingโ€ฆUNTIL I came across THIS!!!
Itโ€™s AWESOME and have cooked it many many times now! Thank you ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ˜Ž

Jillian Turner

September 2, 2021

Budget friendly, easy & so tasty. Will definitely cook again. Thank you Paulene!


August 27, 2021

I do everything the same except for substituting the sausages for about 800g diced chuck steak as my husband didnโ€™t like it with sausages. Always turns out perfectly!


August 27, 2021

I made this for the 1st time for dinner tonight!!! It reminds me sooo much of Tomato Sausage Casserole that I usually cook, very similar!!! I really enjoyed it with some bread to mop up the sauce ๐Ÿคช itโ€™s delicious ๐Ÿ˜‹ thanx Paulene for another great sausage recipe ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿผ


August 2, 2021

This is really yummy. A lovely hearty meal served by itself or with some nice crusty bread

Deb Wylie

July 27, 2021

OMG yum. Hubby gave it a 9 out of 10 and has asked for it again using chops or steak.
Will definitely be a regular in this house


July 24, 2021

Such a easy hearty family meal!! Will definitely be on high rotation at our house ๐Ÿ˜

You could do Janine, it would just be a less creamy consistency in the end sauce/gravy

Janine Raby

July 17, 2021

Just wondering could I replace the can of tomato soup for a can of diced tomatoes


June 15, 2021

This is soooo easy to make and really delicious! Absolutely perfect for a cold winter’s night. Kids and husband also loved it!

In our books we always list slow cooker size since book number 2 (when we began doing so) right up to number 6 ๐Ÿ™‚

Kim smith

June 12, 2021

I love this and so does everyone else in the family, i always boil the sausages first to remove the fat and the skins. Keeping this a regular for sure. Just a suggestion: can people start putting the size of the slow cooker they use when submitting recipes, sometimes the guess doesn’t work that well.

Kristy Hardie

Made this again last night and it was soooo good ๐Ÿคค. It’s the 2nd time making it, following the directions exactly, and it was a huge hit!. We have leftovers tonight so I may serve it with some mash.


June 7, 2021

Excellent!! Even my wife who hates sausages loved it.


June 7, 2021

Omg seriously this is the best recipe ever, so delicious and on a cold winter night it’s perfect to warm you up, this recipe won’t dispoint you,

Yes that would reduce cooking time ๐Ÿ™‚


June 4, 2021

can it be put on high for less time please?

Kristy Hardie

May 2, 2021

So I made this for the 1st time tonight, followed the recipe exactly, and OMG sooo good!!!. We had buttered toast on the side. This is such a yummo dish. Will be making it again for sure.

Thankyou for the recipe Paulene


April 30, 2021

This has become a regular in our house, so nice and super quick. I’d say it’s closer to feeding 4 not 6 though. I swap the sausages for Coles Chevaps for a lower calorie option and chop them into 5, they end up like meatballs

Rita Price

Used Lincolnshire pork sausages & halved the recipe. So tasty plus leftovers for lunches.

Nadine Smith

Hi. I Made this my myself last week and it tasted amazzzzing!!!!

Marion Walsh

February 1, 2021

Love this recipe. So easy to put together and so delicious! Only thing extra I added was a chopped onion.

That would be no trouble to add it ๐Ÿ™‚ It may get a little lost taste wise in everything else but no harm trying ๐Ÿ™‚


February 1, 2021

I want to make this but Iโ€™m just wondering if anyone has added a beef stock cube to it?
I was wanting to add 1x continental beef stock pot to it, or would that not taste very nice added ? Help

Marie White

This was devoured by my hungry lot with a rating of 5*. It was really tasty and I even liked it despite not being keen on sausages. Definitely one to make again.

Tried this and a great hit with the family. Yum .
So easy


October 23, 2020

Made this tonight and enjoyed by all! Easy to make which is always great. I did add a tablespoon of curry powder as well for a little kick. Didn’t have peas on their own so put in a cup of peas, corn, and capsicum mix. Cooked 7 hours on low


October 5, 2020

Made this a few times. Partner loves it. And it freezes well for his lunches

Debbie Millar

I made this for Dinner last night, both Hubby and I loved it, I added Onion and Broccoli, next time I’ll add Button Mushrooms….good wholesome meal that all the family will enjoy…

Clifton George

August 29, 2020

I love this dish. This is a $ saving meal but full of that old fashion slow cooker flavour you would enjoy being cooked by your grandmother when you were a kid and so EASY to get ready. Six stars for this.

I just sprinkle it into the pot dry but you can mix it with the 1/2 cup if you like. NOT any extra water needed


August 28, 2020

Is the French onion soup satchel added with the 1/2 cup of warm water, or made up with the usual 1L of boiling water and added in addition to the 1/2 cup warm water?

Carla Warrington

August 28, 2020

We had this last night. Was so good. All 6 children emptied their plates and Miss 7 ate what was left for breakfast.
I doubled the recipe, left out the peas and had beans on the side.


August 18, 2020

This is super easy and was enjoyed by all the family . It freezes and reheats well.


August 13, 2020

Quick, easy and delicious. A must try๐Ÿ‘Will definitely be a regular. ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹


August 12, 2020

I made this last night and I must say the flavour was amazing! I was disappointed in the sausages having never done sausages in the sc before I really didn’t like the texture much. I even browned them first as I was a little worried. Will definitely make again though either with diced beef or chicken pieces etc. I left out the peas and added a tin of 4 beans mix as well as a tin of crushed tomatoes and some diced sweet potato. Thanks for the great recipe!


August 7, 2020

Absolutely yummy highly recommended will definitely be making this regularly

July 15, 2020

Made this for first time tonight,…. a bit time-poor so par boiled carrots & added extra veggies (cauli & broccoli pces to par boiling), then added chopped halved green beans (on special) To sausages in insert, and the piece de resistance to meal, add a good dollop of sweet chilli sauce. Served w mash. Delicious


July 10, 2020

Made this for my family last night. Mum and sad loved it-the sausages were really tender and no fatty taste. My dad ate 2 serves and mum wants the recipe to make when I leave. Even the 3 year old was a fan!

Either is fine Kylie,but I did cut them raw

Kate Davis

July 10, 2020

Loved this. Was so easy and tastes delish. I used peas and corn as thatโ€™s what I had and cut the snags in smaller pieces (6 instead of 4) for the littlies


July 7, 2020

Do you cut the sausages raw or cook the, first?

June 17, 2020

Made this last night ,I also mashed the potatoes to have on the side .Just beautiful ๐Ÿ˜Š


June 16, 2020

I cannot have the French onion soup mix, what could I replace this with


June 16, 2020

I just ate this for dinner tonight, so delicious! I threw some crushed garlic and a red chilli in too. I also didnt put potatoes in, i cooked separately and mashed and put the sausages on top!


June 15, 2020

Was absolutely delicious. Will definitely be making again. Good food for a cold night.

Capital T is tablespoon, small t is teaspoon

Leigh C-M

June 15, 2020

I used thin pork sausages instead of beef. Also replaced tomato soup with cream of chicken soup. The french onion soup mix made it a little salty for us, so will leave out next time. Loved it.

Marilyn Arnold

June 14, 2020

When you say 1T of worcester sauce do you mean tsp or tbl spoon


June 14, 2020

I made this with chicken sausages a couple of nights ago, was so delicious!

Julie Osler

June 13, 2020

We had this recipe tonight and loved it and leftovers for a couple of lunches. I did not have soup so I replaced with tomato paste and added a bit more water, ended up nice and thick. Hubby loved it.

Jan Sheppard

June 13, 2020

Very tasty. Added a little more water during the cooking and only used 8 sausages. 4๐ŸŒŸ

Kerrin Knight

June 12, 2020

I love this!!!!! Instead of putting the potatoes in the slow cooker, I mashed them and served the casserole over the top. Kids love it, such a cheap, easy recipe. Thanks Pauline.
