If you halve the recipe do you halve the cooking time or cook the same amount??
Thank you

My kids could Truly not get enough of this
Definitely will be a favourite

You could do cut or whole it won’t matter πŸ™‚ No they don’t have to be fully submerged

Do you cut the sausages or put in whole and cut once cooked? Also should the water mixture cover the sausages entirely?

I followed this recipe exactly and we loved it. Found it just a bit tarty 4 my lil ones so added 1 tspn of brown sugar. Easiest tastiest meal served on mash potato thankyou so much 4 this recipe x

No I definitely mean tablespoons. As you can see everyone else liked it as is so I wouldn’t change anything about the recipe, but I’d definitely encourage you to adjust it to your own tastes by all means πŸ™‚

spent 6 hours making this, i was so excited and when i finally tasted it once everything was cooked, it was horrible

the Worcester sauce is immensely over powering the entire dish tastes like vinegar, wasted many ingredients

i know there is always a weirdo on each recipe saying its horrible and not once has it ever been me but today it is

i warn you all be careful with the Worcester sauce, i think the poster meant teaspoons not tablespoons because otherwise the dish is hard to eat and i followed this recipe to the letter

First time cooking it and it was a hit in my house i have 5 fussy boys and a husband they couldnt get enough of it and asked are you going to cook it more often. i put potatoes in also some little meatballs as well and doubled the sauce mixture to make it real saucy as we like our sauce thankyou for a great recipe

I’d serve with mash and veg πŸ™‚

Very tasty. Instead of Worcestershire sauce as i didn’t have used teriyaki sauce. Tasted great also added sweet potato. Wow will have this as a weekly meal

I’d use raw sausages for best results πŸ™‚

I made this today was delicious i also added potatoe & sweet potatoes, 1 beef cube and a little less water and 2 handfuls of macoroni which i added in the last 30 mins

This worked really well. I halved everything as I only had 8 sausages. Just added a splash more water to thin sauce a little. Great taste!!

I made this tonight for tea but using Aldi sausages and it was so much nicer than using the Coles sausages it’s a huge hit

Looooooooooved this. So quick and easy. I didn’t have the time to cook it on low so I just did it on high for half the time and added some mixed vegetables towards the end. Definitely gonna be a regular thing in my house.

I’m sure it would serve lovely with rice
To add small veg like peas and corn I’d add them around 30-45mins prior to serving

Would this be ok to go with rice? ( 4 year old loves rice) And if I add frozen peas and corn to it ,at what point would I put them in? Thanks heaps looking forward to trying it out.

I have only done sausages once before in my slow cooker, when I squeezed Italian sausages to make meatballs. I did this recipe yesterday……….so good!! I also added a bag of Asian vegetables.

Smelled yummy while cooking, added a large”dollop” of chilli sauce and with half an hour to go stirred through some cooked corn and peas, served over a large “zapped” spud.

The smell of the slow cooked sausages had been driving me barmy all afternoon – even other-half said “something smells gorgeous” when he came in the back door. All enjoyed it, and will have again. I served it with Low Carb Cauliflower Mash and Mixed Veggies. Next time I will try with Mashed Potatoes.

I had to be a little inventive as we don’t like bbq sauce, so simply substituted it with some home-made chili sauce instead.
Thoroughly enjoyed the flavours together, & even though it wasn’t the original recipe – it certainly helped me find another dish I liked
Thank you for sharing your recipe πŸ™‚
