    Default Can I do this in a slow cooker??

    Hi, we've just bought a slow cooker, so still getting used to it!

    im wondering if this sausage casserole will work?

    http://www.taste.com.au/recipes/7618/sausage+casserole

    If so how? Should I just brown the sausages and leave them whole, then bung everything in the slow cooker on low?

    TIA

    Yes it will work great! No need to brown the sausages, just leave them whole.

    8 hours for low
    4 hours for high

    Just chuck it all in! It's similar to a recipe I have.

    It sounds like it would

    I'm so lazy with my sausage casseroles. I brown the sausages, cut them and chuck them in with a jar or bolognese sauce or tomato soup/diced tomatoes... Whatever I have on hand.

    Yes I'd put it in the slow cooker, I'd brown the sausages first, I prefer them cut in halves or third but what ever you prefer. Then I'd mix the stock together with the sugar and tomato paste so it's easier to add to the sausages. With my slow cook I'd need to put it on med for about 7-8 hours.
    Hope that helps.

    It should work but the general rule when converting a standard recipe to a slow cooker recipe is to halve the liquid so just make sure you look into that.

    Oh and I would brown them first, I think it tastes better that way.

    when I make mine I cut after they're cooked

    In my house, if I was to brown them I'd run the risk of cooking them a little longer and making the casings chewy.

    You only 'need' to brown meat that isn't encased (I.e. steak, roasts etc) to 'seal' in the juices. This is not a problem with sausages.

    Sausage casserole type recipes come out lovely in the slow cooker. I stick my snags in a big pot of water and gently simmer then for about 10+ mins. Not only does this get rid of the fat, you can roll the skin straight off, let them cool then chop them and put them in the cooker. They come out melt in your mouth while still holding their shape and don't have that hard crispy texture from frying them
