Total Time 4 hours 5 minutes


  • 12 thin beef sausages
  • 1 x 420g can Campbell's Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup (no water added)
  • 1 x 40g Packet French Onion Soup Mix (dry)
  • 1-2 Tablespoons Worcestireshire Sauce
  • 1 Onion diced
  • 1 Tablespoon Mint Sauce or Mint Jelly (Optional)


  • Inspired by the original Lamb Obsession recipe - just using sausages.
  • Place sausages in slow cooker bowl
  • Add onion
  • Combine all other ingredients and pour over sausages
  • Cook on low for 4-5hrs approximately
  • *NOTE*
  • This does NOT taste like mushroom.
  • Even seasoned mushroom haters have been fed this without knowing and not one has detected the mushroom yet!
  • The mint is the mildest hint of flavour but if you really, really dont like it then just leave it out, it wont matter.

  1. This was easy & nice. Didn’t taste like mushrooms at all. I don’t like mushrooms so was a little sceptical but was nicely surprised. Will only put 1/2 teaspoon of mint sauce next time.

  2. So I didnt hate it but i didnt like it either and i dont intend to make it again I found it was way to salty I’m not use to much salt and thats all i could taste and my kids also didn’t like it and they aren’t fussy but they never have salt maybe that’s why they don’t like it but my best friend who also ate it with us absolutely loved it! Having said that I’ve seen so many rave on about lamb obsession so I still even after this wanted to try it out as maybe it may taste better with a different meat but how would I make it not so salty like this one?? Tia

  3. I liked it but didn’t hate it either. I would definitely recommend pre-cutting the sausages as the sauce didn’t combine properly during the cook. Would also recommend using a higher grade sausage as we used bulk pack sausages that didn’t have the best taste with the obsession sauce. But we do love lamb obsession so might just stick to it ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. 1st Time Trying This Im Cooking This For Tonight, i Boiled And Removed The Skins From The Sausages Also Cut Into Bite Sized Pieces Before Placing In Slow Cooker. I Had To Add Water Because It Wasnt Very Saucy..And i Like Sauce Also Added Carrot Peas and Corn Into The Sauce i Will Serve On Top Of Mash Potato, Had a Quick Taste and Tastes Good!

  5. I had seen plenty of people raving about how fantastic this & the lamb obsession were but hadn’t gotten around to trying it myself. Why did I wait so long!!! Yum! Will be trying the lamb obsession next time any lamb cut is on special!

    I made this tonight for dinner and WOW! It was not only simple to make but it was also extremely tasty. We’ve got enough for another meal put away in the freezer which is a bonus. This was only my 2nd ever experience with slow cooking and when things like this are being cooked I’m delighted.

  7. For anyone who hasn’t tried sausage obsession. Seriously do it. Absolutely bloody beautiful!! Hubby & toddler demolished their servings!! So tasty. I did brown the sausages beforehand & I sprinkled with chicken stock powder & garlic powder while browning. Also I needed to add about 1.5-2 cups of water during cooking as it was just too thick & I also didn’t add the mint sauce. Definitely will be on our fortnightly meal plan ๐Ÿ˜‰

  8. This was such a yummy meal both me and my partner loved it and he is such a fussy eater. It was so delicious and made enough for leftovers the next day. I added an extra can of cream of mushroom soup to make it more saucy and 2 tablespoons of worcesttireshire as I was worried it would be super salty but it was perfect and definitely saving this recipe for next time… plus this is such a super cheap and totally easy meal to make

  9. Outstanding. Was inspired by a photo posted by Sarah De Boar in the week so had to try this. Cannot use onion (Old Master Fussy) and sprinkled garlic powder and season all salt as I browned the snags. Young Mr Fussy liked it but said it had too much flavour…he will learn ๐Ÿ™‚

    I will definitely do this again as it went down reasonably well with the family.

    Whole family LOVED this.
    I have 3 mushroom haters… to the dry retch stage? I couldn’t bear the thought of wasting this tea with mushroom soup so thought I’d try half tin of mushroom soup & half tin Passata (tomato soup would work) woohoo ? They DIDN’T pick the mushroom soup…won’t push my luck though …& I’ve burnt the evidence…soup label gone!
    Also used Cumberland sausages Mmm well worth the extra $$$

  11. Nadine Underwood

    WINNER! We have Mushroom HATERS ( to the dry retch stage!) I couldn’t bare wasting tea because they picked the Mushroom soup, so I did half Mushroom soup & Half Passata (or Tomato soup would have worked too) a bit of a *Devilled Sausage Obsession*!!!
    They didn’t pick it, We all loved it.
    I used Cumberland Sausages, didn’t pre cook them ( don’t have time at 8am!)
    I’m a bit heavy handed with the Worcester as me & my family are Worcestershirians
    For anyone stuck with “THAT” word … it’s said WUSS (as in puss) T (as in phonetically T not Tee) SHHR . . .

  12. Loved it. Left sausages whole, the skins stayed intact, and left out the mint sauce. Delicious! Really nice. Will definitely make again.

  13. Delish ๐Ÿ™‚ So easy to put on and leave ready for dinner . Just served with steam veg and pasta

  14. Samantha Cooper

    Made this and omgosh. Was delish. Was a hit. Added mushroom, bacon, capsicum and potatoes to take some of the salty taste away. Next time ill use salt reduced soup. Served with pasta

  15. Would love to make this but only have Cream of Chicken soup.
    Would it still work with using this instead of the mushroom soup?

  16. Halved the Wostershire sauce, added bacon and two medium thinly sliced potatoes. Used Italian sausage (not browned and cut into bite sized chunks), added cooked corn 10 minutes from serving. Added a little gravy powder to thicken the sauce at the end. Served over rice. Added to the “Repeat Menu” by demand!!!!

  17. Easy, inexpensive and very tasty. Love it.
    I prefer browning sausages first and do not add any mint.
    Served with mash. Beautiful

  18. Well, well, well……I too do not like mushrooms and was hesitant in trying this dish. However, it was lovely! As other reviewers have commented, it didn’t taste like mushrooms at all! I am now convinced! lol. My whole family enjoyed this and I am sure we will have this again. Thanks for a wonderful and easy recipe.

  19. My family love this and I do too for several reasons I can’t always afford meat but snags….well I can afford that and having unique sausage meals is perfect for us, we add a small amount of gravy granules to ours twords the end and serve it on a bed of sour cream mash…..sooooo goooood

  20. Words fail me..this is soooo beautiful. The sauce is so yummy! Loved every mouthful! Made it exactly to the recioe.

  21. Tasted nice although a little salty even though i used salt reduced french onion soup although i think that could be down to the sausages apart from that it was delicious

  22. I found it too salty, though everyone else loved it!? Might be because I used cheap sausages. Next time Iโ€™ll try the raw potato tip to reduce saltiness.

  23. Hi fairly new to the whole sc thing ,just wondering I have never cooked chicken or sausages in there before do you need to brown first as Iโ€™m a bit worried about the whole raw chicken thing lol.
    If you do brown chicken or sausages ect would you cut down the cooking time?
    Thank you

    This has to be my new favourite recipe. So easy to prepare and tastes amazing!! I didn’t pre brown the sausages and it was fine. I did however add a couple chopped carrots and a stick of chopped celery to the mix. Will have to try this with Lamb next ๐Ÿ™‚

  25. Hi there, Iโ€™ve made this a few times before and the family absolutely love it! Today however, I do not have dry French onion soup mix, but I do have dry chicken noodle soup mix. Would this work as an alternative ? Has anyone tried it? I understand the flavour will be very different but hoping itโ€™s do-able! Thanks

  26. We had this last night for dinner. All of it is gone! Husband loved it, I loved it and even better, the toddler loved it! Heโ€™s in a phase where he throws his food but this, he didnโ€™t even throw cause he liked it too much. Definitely will do it again!

  27. We found it extremely salty, BUT used no name French Onion Soup because thatโ€™s all the supermarket had left. Will definitely be trying it again with a different brand of soup mix. Besides that, the flavours were awesome!

  28. I cooked this for the first and what a wow factor and i added a couple tablespoons of mint jelly and absolutely tasty and enjoyable at every bite and will make this again

  29. Absolutely delicious. Husband also loved it. Added some mushrooms I had in the fridge because we love mushrooms and added a bit more Worcestershire sauce. Served with mashed potato, mashed pumpkin and zucchini.
    And the best part, this quantity made another 2 meals (that I’ve frozen) for my husband and I. Yum!

  30. Did this yesterday with lamb and feta sausages from Woolworths – these are a thicker gourmet type sausage. Even my fussy teenage daughter and her partner loved this

  31. Excuse me whilst I wipe the drool off the phone screen! ?,
    Yesterday I cooked this dish so we had a dish ready to go for dinner tonight.
    I added a big bowl of sliced mushrooms to the pot, a little water ( just so the sauce got extended)
    Bowl licking is an understatement!
    A big tick from our household!

  32. Made this last night for the family Dad loved it! He has requested that it gets added to the make again list. Cooked for just over 4hrs, added bacon and carrot to it as well served with potato. Next time I might try it with a vegetable soup base instead.

  33. This was so delicious and so easy!
    3 members of my family despise mushrooms and they had absolutely NO IDEA, that there was mushroom soup in this, and gobbled it up happily.
    The sausages were so soft and lovely after being slow cooked and were so easy and delicious to eat.
    My very fussy daughter said that it didnโ€™t look very nice, but then I finally convinced her to just try it, and she loved it so much that she ate the whole lot so fast and asked for second helpings, and I had a giggle to myself.

  34. Susan Williams

    Very tasty. I followed the recipe exactly using Chippolata sausages. Next time I will add some mushrooms.

  35. Wow wow wow this is AMAZING!!! Even my fussy husband said it was delicious and to make it again. The sauce is so finger licking good!!! This has been added to my forever recipe collection, which I donโ€™t put many recipes onโ€ฆ however this I want to keep making forever!! Thank you!

  36. We found it too Salty, even though I used the salt reduced French onion soup packet, with the mushroom soup. We put it down to the sausages maybe, I purchased them from Aldi.

  37. I also found it far too salty and ended up throwing out what was left and couldn’t eat mine same with hubby and I love salt but didn’t enjoy this

  38. We really enjoyed this recipe, definitely will be making again!
    I did substitute the cream of mushroom for cream of chicken (because I realised too late I didnโ€™t have it ?). Was a little salty, but I put that down to quite a few salty ingredients plus the cream of chicken (next time I might only put one tbl spoon of Worcestershire sauce ?)
    Enjoyed with veggies and mashed spud.
    Thanks for another great recipe !

  39. 5 stars
    This is 1 of my absolute fave sausage recipes!!! I cooked it for dinner tonight n I donโ€™t know y ????? but it tasted better than ever, I served it on top of potato ? n sweet potato ? mash ? I used my 3 litre sc n only used an 8 pk of thin bbq beef sausages from Coles this time!!! I always boil them 1st, cover with water n add a good splash of brown vinegar which helps absorb the fat, remove skin n cut into bite sized pieces, absolutely delicious, love it ?? highly recommend ???

    I absolutely LOVE this recipe & would love to make for my parents however my mum is highly allergic to mushrooms & can’t have mushroom soup. Is there another variety you can add instead of mushrooms?

  41. 5 stars
    I made this for dinner and had with air fried veg. Sooo good and I am another mushroom hater, could not taste mushroom. will be a regular now.

  42. 5 stars
    I made this for dinner for something different
    It was absolutely delicious, I added some sliced mushrooms and peas in the last hour of cooking
    Will definitely be making this again.

  43. 5 stars
    Very tasty recipe. I am lazy and usually add vegetables into the recipe for a complete meal: 3 diced potatoes; 3 sliced carrots and in last half hour add one cup frozen peas and one cup frozen corn- when I add potatoes and/or carrots, I usually cook on low for 7 hours.

  44. 5 stars
    Absolutely delicious. I knew it would be! The obsession sauce is the bomb and literally goes well with anything! Good when being budget conscious but still want a hearty, yummy meal. would usually serve with mash but my potatoes weren’t the best so had with rice. still so good.
    Used 12 thin sausages cut into four’s.
