  • Yields: 6


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)


1Inspired by the original Lamb Obsession recipe - just using sausages.


3Place sausages in slow cooker bowl

4Add onion

5Combine all other ingredients and pour over sausages

6Cook on low for 4-5hrs approximately



9This does NOT taste like mushroom.

10Even seasoned mushroom haters have been fed this without knowing and not one has detected the mushroom yet!

11The mint is the mildest hint of flavour but if you really, really dont like it then just leave it out, it wont matter.

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

I love that Fern! πŸ™‚

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 didn’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.

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.

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!

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

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!

Yep you sure can Jason

Can I use chicken sausages with this.

It was delicious and full of flavour 😍

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

I’ve not tried it but I think that would be ok Jeanne πŸ™‚

Can I use normal onion soup powder? I accidentally bought the wrong one

Yep for sure choose the salt reduced french onion soup pkt next time as it will better suit your tastes πŸ™‚


December 10, 2019

We found it extremely salty, BUT used no name French Onion Soup because that’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!

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! He’s in a phase where he throws his food but this, he didn’t even throw cause he liked it too much. Definitely will do it again!

Tasty and easy recipe enjoyable

I’m so sorry I only saw this comment two days later! How’d it go? πŸ™‚


June 11, 2019

Hi there, I’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 it’s do-able! Thanks

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 πŸ™‚

Hi Amanda
Absolutely no need to pre brown either before slow cooking πŸ™‚

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 I’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

Big win with hubbie he had left overs on a roll thumbs up favourite he gives says 10 lol


September 29, 2018

Absolutely delicious and the kids loved it! So quick and easy to make, will be a new go to family recipe.

Sure can πŸ™‚


August 21, 2018

Can you freeze this receipe??

Anna Jeffery

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

Kath Bowes

June 18, 2018

Was yummy…. But nothing like the lamb….

A little tip if that happens in your slow cooking is to add a pealed, raw potato to the pot in the last hour
Discard before serving
It will absorb salt


June 6, 2018

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

This is our favourite Sausage dish to eat….so far

Tanya Kendell

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


March 27, 2018

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.


March 25, 2018

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


March 25, 2018

Love this dish it is always a winner. So easy and not expensive at all. So so tasty.

I find some sausages saltier in the slow cooker than others
One easy way to fix this is to add a raw, peeled potato in the last hour or two of cooking
It absorbs the salt from the dish then discard it prior to serving πŸ™‚


February 6, 2018

Why did mine turn out so salty


December 11, 2017

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!!!!

It won’t taste the same as it’s meant to but sure it will still work πŸ™‚

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


September 13, 2017

Really made the sausages into something special. Husband LOVED it.


September 11, 2017

i make this using lamb sausages – and lots of onions πŸ™‚ everyone loves as much as the original πŸ™‚


July 8, 2017

A winner in our house, will definitely make it again.

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


July 3, 2017

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


July 1, 2017

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

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 . . .

Nadine Underwood

June 28, 2017

Whole family LOVED this.
I have 3 mushroom haters… to the dry retch stageπŸ˜• 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 $$$

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 πŸ™‚

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

Will be making again. I cut the sausages into 3-4 pieces. It is delicious.


June 21, 2017

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

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 πŸ˜‰

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.

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!


February 6, 2017

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!


December 29, 2016

yummy!! will def be cooking again, hubby liked it to who doesnt like many slow cooked meals.


December 18, 2016

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 πŸ™‚


November 13, 2016

Absolutely loved this recipe

Thank you πŸ™‚

If you are going to try any of the obsessions then lamb is the one to try – that’s the original recipe
This is only an offshoot of that.
Use salt reduced soups and it slashes the salt πŸ™‚

Jade Whitham

August 12, 2016

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

Totally up to personal choice!
Some like to but personally I never do πŸ™‚

Hi just wondering should I brown the sausages first? Thank you


June 27, 2016

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.


May 4, 2016

Loved this BUT still doesn’t beat Lamb Obsession ? ?
