I have been a fool not to try this recipe before otherwise I would have realized what a gem it is.Of course DH walked by when I putting the sausages in the Varoma and questioned whether "boiled" sausages tasted good  :P I said they were going to be "steamed" He admitted that the meal was very tasty but asked that I remove the sausage skins next time.Thanks Chelsea for a lovely recipe :-*

It just takes time to get around to all the brilliant recipes on the forum CC and when we do one that like this, we do wonder why it has taken so long.  It is getting harder and harder to do all those we have earmaked with so many being added but all we can do is plod on and do the best we can.  Glad you finally got around to this one though, it surprises everyone I think.

I'm glad you enjoyed it CC.  It took me a while to work up the courage to steam sausages. I thought they would taste terrible.  :)

I've never been a fan of sausages and don't eat mashed potatoe so have never looked at this thread but with so many responses I couldn't help myself. I might have to give it a go, I'm sure the kids will love it.

I made this tonight (with a few adjustments) and it was so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so YUMMY!!!!! Even my girls ate it and they are so dang fussy!!!! My youngest licked the plate she liked it so much.

I could only get Chicken Sausages as all the others had additives so I made these changes

I used Chicken Stock instead of Beef Stock, added an extra clove of garlic and onion.
I diced the onion & garlic on Sp 5 for 3 sec first
I could get swiss mushrooms, so used button but added about 6
I added 100g of butter instead of 50g as I had added so much extra
I also used half sweet potato & half potato

The gravy was so flavoursome I could easily eat just it and the mash as the whole meal (I just may do that with the leftover for lunch tomorrow :P ;) :P)

I also wanted to say that we have always boiled our sausages before using them in curries, stir-fry etc, so I haven't seen steaming them as anything weird.

I've been told by a few cooks you should even boil your sausages before frying, the taste is 10 times better. I have never bothered though as we rarely have sausages fried, but it makes a massive difference to the curries and stir fries I make.

Why it has taken me this long to try this really tasty old favourite I will never know.  Thank you Chelsea for a big winner - I sprinkled herbamore over the vegs in varoma and added a little cheese to the potato when whipping with butterfly......delish!!!!!!!

Well I finally made this and we all liked the gravy but my son refused to eat more than half the sausage and said he would like them if they were the type used in England!!!! He's never even been to England and the only way we have ever had sausages is on the BBQ - no idea what he is talking about. Sometimes you just can't win, it seems every recipe on here that get great reviews my son doesn't like.

The recipe was great but we probably won't worry about making it again, but may use the gravy recipe to go with other things.

Hi Wonder, when I had this problem with my kids I just served it up again but usually with a fantastic new name. I gave the kids fish and called it water chicken as they didn't like fish. They also didn't like pumpkin soup so I poured it over cooked pasta and called it pasta with a creamy orange sauce. They loved it! The trick with some kids is to try, try, try again. With others you just give up and cook something else.  ;D

Very true.  You could always chop the snags up and mix them through the gravy.  :)

He's a pretty good eater really but he can be very fussy with what he will and won't eat. I'll leave it for a while and try with different sausages and see how he goes.
