Winter sausage casserole winter

Sausage-CasseroleWe Aussies love a good snag. We usually associate them with barbecues in the summer sun.

But sausages are such a staple in Australian homes, they even go great in winter casseroles!

Check out this delicious new winter recipe for sausage casserole. You would normally need a slow cooker for this one, but just simmering gently over a low heat for a few hours will do the trick too.

Winter Sausage Casserole


  • 8 Aussie Farmers Direct gourmet lamb sausages
  • 1 tbsp Aussie Farmers Direct olive oil
  • 1 large brown onion, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 2 eggplants, chopped
  • 3/4 tsp chilli flakes
  • 400g can diced tomatoes
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 1/4 cup flat-leaf parsley leaves, chopped


  1. Heat oil in a large non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Add sausages and cook, turning occasionally, for 2 to 3 minutes or until evenly browned. Remove to a plate lined with paper towel.
  2. Add onion, garlic and eggplant to pan. Cook, stirring often, for 5 minutes or until eggplant is golden. Stir in chilli and tomatoes. Cook for 5 minutes or until sauce thickens.
  3. Add stock and bring to the boil. Spoon eggplant mixture into slow cooker. Add sausages. Cover and cook on high for 4 hours or low for 6 hours.
  4. Stir in parsley and season with pepper.
  5. Serve with steamed vegetables and crusty bread.
