 :D we just had this for dinner - BIL and his wife were here too, only prob was BIL doesn't like mashed potatoes, so DH deep fried them after steaming - were yum! 5yo - who doesn't like sausages - had a second helping, 2yo - who likes anything she doesn't have to swallow!! - actually cleared her plate, 9mo - who eats ANYTHING (food or otherwise) - had all she was offered. DH gave it 5/5, BIL was 10/10, SIL said "very yum, can I have the recipe??!" (she has a TM too) so I think a very big THANK YOU is in order from here! Thank you so much for our delicious easy tea!!  :D

Made this tonight. I used a larger onion as that was all I had.  I mashed the spuds but must have done it too long as it was more of a puree than mash. I am still on my L plates so that's probably why.  I haven't made them in the beast before. The gravy was good but looked insiped. It was yummo though.  The gravy was too thick for me - next time I would only. Use half the cornflour but that is my personal preference not the recipe.

All in all it was really good, will def make again.   4.5/5 thanks for sharing

quite often I will stop a couple of secs before its specified because I want to have a look at the size of the chopped mix. Better to be able to chop 1 or 2 secs more than have a mush on hand. I do like my veges chopped more rustic.

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

Love 'water chicken', what a great name!

I have a bout of insomnia tonight and am browsing the forum, something I rarely have time to do lately. I can't believe I haven't seen this recipe! Will get some sausages tomorrow and make it for tea. We have butcher sausages at our local store and they're delicious any which way.
A great cook is one who can rustle up a fabulous family meal with some freezer burnt chops, wilted carrots, sprouting potatoes and cabbage that's gone brown on the cut edges.

Julie, that looks great, did you cook the sausages in the varoma and did  you leave the skins on?

Hi Wonder.  Yes I cooked it all in the TM except for the potatoes, prefer other methods for them, and yes, the skins stayed on.  ;D

Hmm... I wasn't keen on the steamed sausages and I need to make the gravy tastier. The guys in the family scoffed it though!
I didn't use mushrooms, only onion. I used my own chicken stock and it wasn't at all salty, that was probably the issue.

Beef stock and mushies add the flavour. Can't win them all.  :D

I make this with just the EDC vegetable stock concentrate, and use a good 2 handfuls of button mushrooms instead of the brown. It makes a delicious sauce, it's a family favourite here. :) Thanks Chelsea.

I tried this tonight, and it wasa great success! But it really looked like none of the photos posted. I added mushrooms to the gravy but maybe too many as the potatoes ended up sitting in the gravy and so ended up grey! It took a little while to convince DD4 to eat it (she had declared she didn't like gravy), but when she and DS1 tried it they were hooked. But did I do something wrong that the potatoes were such a bizzare colour?

I find that if I put in any more than 2 medium sized mushrooms the potatoes end up quite grey. They taste yummy but don't look appealing.  :)
