Wow, I couldn’t believe it, this was my first recipe I have posted this year. Those that know my blog before Christmas, know I try to post at a recipe at least once a fortnight (every 2 weeks).
The weather is perfect for a casserole. One of my favorite casseroles, as a kid, was Devilled Sausages (using a sachet from Maggi, alas not available in the US). As far as I can tell this is a New Zealand/Australian recipe. It is full of flavor, great with rice and mashed potatoes, and the kids like it too. The recipe is below – enjoy!!
4-6 Sausages (Pork), sliced
1 tsp oil
1 garlic clove, crushed
1 medium onion, sliced thinly
2 medium granny smith apples, sliced thinly
1 can tomatoes
1/2 cup tomato sauce
1/4 cup strong brewed coffee
3-4 Tbsp Brown sugar
3-4 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
1/4 tsp crushed red pepper
- Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F (180 C).
- Brown sausages in a fry pan until just cooked.
- In a casserole dish place all the ingredients including the sausages. Mix the ingredients. Taste the sauce at this point and decide on the sugar + vinegar amounts (It will taste like a BBQ sauce).
- Place in the oven, covered and cook for 30 mins.
- Serve with rice or mashed potatoes (this is my favorite)
I was drooling till I reached the cold coffee. Now I’m still interested but puzzled… What does the coffee flavour do to the otherwise quite normal sounding bbq type sauce?
Believe it or not adds depth to the taste. I use it in my homemade BBQ sauce all the time…which originated from a weight watchers recipe
I’ll have to give it a go – without telling Himself what’s in it. He’s basically very conservative until he’s tasted it, and then you can do the big reveal. Think I’ve got some pork snags in the freezer…
The hubby doesn’t like tea or coffee but ate these and also likes the BBQ sauce 🙂
I remember those Maggie sachets! Your recipe looks much nicer – will need to test it on my kids when the weather cools!
This looks delicious! And easy to make! I think I will be trying this tonight! Thanks for sharing, Michelle!
Hmm… I’m not at all a coffee fan, but if you can’t taste it in here, I’ll have to give this a try because it looks right up my husband and kids’ alley. Thanks for sharing!
