I did this exactly to the recipe. It was wonderful….but just a tiny bit rich. Next time I’ll swap out some of the bbq sauce for tomato. A lovely easy dish.

Yummy saucy flavour, another winner.
I ran out of bbq sauce and replaced half with tomato, worked fine.

Yes you can use pork sausages Jane šŸ™‚ But not frozen, never frozen (here’s why)

Can you use normal pork sausages? (Iā€™m in Uk) and could I Chuck them in frozen and leave 8+ hours while Iā€™m at work?

Made this for dinner last night, we enjoyed it with mash potato but I think I still like curried sausages better. Nice alternative for something a bit different

This has turned into a regular cost effective meal in my house. I serve with mash potato

Made this today and was so yummy. The only thing was that there wasnt enough sauce for me. Will definitely make again just for me (sis that lives with me didn’t like it, very fussy). Thank you for a great recipe.

We made this last night and it was so delicious. So easy to make. We just needed to thicken the sauce at the end with some cornflour. Will be a regular on our menu!

Made this tonight, we were not a fan of the sauce when taste testing straight from pan as it was rich, but once served with mashed potato and peas it was absolutely beautiful. A winner in our house.

Another big winner in the house tonight!
Made as per the recipe instructions above all EXCEPT for the sauce
I chose to do half bbq and half tomato
Flavour was on point.

Sure can šŸ™‚

Hubby not a big fan of bbq sauce so can i lesson bbq flavour by adding half tomato sauce

What beans are you talking about?? No beans in this recipe šŸ™‚ Are you looking at the diced bacon in the photo and thinking that’s beans??


August 23, 2018

Cannot find how much and what sort of beans ???
Thank you

No šŸ™‚

Do you need to put tea towel under lid at all?

Wow…. this is one of my faves. Has become a staple of my freezer, always have a dump bag of this on standby. Love it on creamy mash potato.

Tried this one today, it was beautiful but the sauce was a bit rich so I think I might add a little less worcestershire next time, also was very runny at the end so I added some corn flour. I cut my sausages into 4s instead of leaving them whole aswell, was a winner with the kids and hubby so definitely cooking again šŸ˜Š

Best bangers and mash I have ever eaten. I added some mixed herbs, a little extra smoked paprika and chilli flakes. Also, towards the end I added a little bit of corn flour to help thicken it up, as I found it a little runny. It will be a regular dish here at home, my brother said he doesn’t want his sausages any other way. Next time I am going to add some mushrooms, I think that would be awesome. Best of all, it was so quick, easy and cheap to make. YUM!

Bacon in the recipe will do that, to chicken too, šŸ™‚

It was very nice, but my sausages came out a little pink (will brown a bit next time) and the sauce was really runny.

Wow got to give this one a try. Sounds yummy

Made this tonight. Everyone enjoyed but next time I will brown sausages first.

I made this tonight with a few changes – leftvout the paprika, used 50/50 BBQ sauce and HP sauce and added some Gravox powder towards the end to thicken it up a little. It was delicious! So glad there’s leftovers and will definitely be making it again.

I prefer to cook and serve my vegies on the side to this one šŸ™‚
Lots of every colour


April 12, 2017

This was yummy! What vegies would you recommend adding in to boost the nutritional value?

Made this and was so delicious. Hubby and I love it although last time we omitted the paprika as our daughter said it was a bit spicy for her. Still a big hit in this household

Another winner.
This was so tasty and so easy to make. The family enjoyed it, but we all decided that next time, I need to reduce the BBQ sauce because it was a bit strong for us.
The sauce was fairly runny toward the end of the cooking time, so I used cornflour to thicken it. I will definitely make this again.

So yummy. Went out for a little while and when I came home it’s delicious aroma was eminating from my house. Bet my neighbours were salivating ha ha. So easy and so full of flavour. Thank you for sharing this recipe. I don’t eat sausages very often but will definitely be making again.

Thanks for you feedback – lovely šŸ™‚

This is such a quick recipe to put together that is packed with flavour. It can also be prepared the night before and stored in a container in the fridge ready to put on in the morning. I always cook for at least 8 hours on low and it holds up well.
The sauce works well with other meats including Pork and Meatballs and I will also try with Chicken.
Thanks Paulene.

Made this for dinner tonight. Very nice. Used beef chipolata sausages and browned them before putting in slow cooker (as I prefer that). Flavour was lovely. My family scored this 10/10! Another winning recipe. Thank you. Will be a regular (and I’m not even a big barbecue sauce fan) lol….

Awesome thank you!

April 15, 2016

An easy, tasty and inexpensive recipe, I serve with mashed potatoes and veggies


March 20, 2016
