  1. Another awesome and super easy recipe from Paulene. Family all rated it 10/10 – even the fussy one 😉
    Not too sweet, just perfect. On the regular list now.

  2. Wow!! This was my first try at snags in the sc and this definitely didn’t disappoint 😋😍 A truly easy and delicious meal with minimal ingredients needed 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟Thanks so much for sharing this one with us Paulene 😊

  3. Very tasty and simple. Will try with diced beef in the future. In saying that sausages is a cheap and tasty meal, I guarantee I will cook again 😁
    We ate with pasta and broccoli, 2 kids aged 6 and 8 loved it.

    1. 9hrs would usually be too long unless your slow cooker cooks particularly low/slow? The other thing you could do to counteract is to be sure to keep the cooker fuller (so maybe a double batch?) but in general that’s a really long time for sausages and it might dry out

  4. Decided to give this a try due to the raving reviews and it didn’t disappoint ! Simple , easy , tasty and there’s none left over !

  5. I really enjoyed this. The sauce was lovely. My sauce stayed quite runny even with using a tea towel for the last two hours, I didn’t want to use cornflour. It was still very tasty and hubby and Miss 10 also enjoyed. I served it with roast potatoes, corn on the cob and baby peas. I can’t wait to have this one again!

  6. This would have been a really yummy dish if I hadn’t of used Chipolato sausages it altered the flavour. Will try it again though

  7. This was a dish winner with a fussy partner and 4 year old. I swapped the apricot jam for strawberry as that was all I had. It still turned out nice, sweet but we like sweet sauces.

  8. I am going to try this, but with sweet orange marmelade, because I have some I’m just not eating. I’ll have to post again when I see how it turns out.

  9. We had this for dinner tonight (second time) and it was lovely, everyone enjoyed it.
    Last time I left the sausages whole for serving but this time I cut them up into bit size pieces and the sauce was able to get right through them, everyone seemed to prefer them cut up.

  10. I made this today with a few adaptations:

    6 sausages (I used Angus beef and caramelised onion)
    1/3 cup raspberry jam
    (Rest of the sauce the same)

    I added baby potatoes after an hour which I cut with the egg flip. With an hour to go I added diced capsicum (1/2 as that’s what was in the fridge) and sliced mushrooms and stirred that through. 20 mins before serving I added frozen mashed potato and stirred that though to thicken.

    Absolutely filling! Will make again
