What are Devilled Sausages

Devilled sausages (or deviled sausages) are basically sausages cooked in a spicy gravy or sauce. Devilled is usually a “spicy” way to cook or serve a dish. Think devilled eggs. Think ultimate comfort food.

Ingredients

Scroll to the bottom of this post for the quantity of each ingredient used in our deviled sausages recipe.

Ingredients for devilled sausages in small bowls with labels to tell you what they are.

Curry powder – I use my Malaysian Meat Curry Powder which is similar to Babas Meat Curry Powder. You can use any curry powder you prefer. Keens Curry is most commonly used however it does contain rice powder. You can also use a curry paste in this sausage curry.

Sausages – choose the sausages you love the most. Beef sausages, pork sausages, chicken sausages, chipolatas, or vegetarian sausages. The choice is yours. I choose low carb sausages or get my local butcher to make some up with my own spice mix and no additives.

Sweetener – For sweetener I have chosen Sukrin Gold. You can use brown sugar or unrefined sweeteners for a slightly higher carb sausages in gravy recipe. For our low carb keto followers just choose any brown (or white) sweetener you prefer. It does taste better with a little sweetening.

Sauces – I do use gluten free Worcestershire sauce. Worcestershire does contain sugar. If you prefer to use coconut aminos go for it. There are also some low carb low in sugar ketchups in the supermarket, alternatively you can use my keto Tomato Ketchup recipe. You can replace the ketchup with fresh tomatoes if you prefer. The gravy may just need further reducing because of the excess water.

Vegetables – while I only use onions in my devilled sausages recipe you can add extra vegetables if you like. Chopped carrot and celery are perfect. If you aren’t following a keto diet you might like to add some diced potato, sweet potato, or serve with mashed potatoes.

How To Make Them

Step 1 process shot with a frying pan with sausages and onion in it.

Step 1. Heat the oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add the sausages, garlic, and onion, and cook sausages until browned on all sides and the onion has softened. (Optional) If you prefer the sausages sliced for easier eating later, slice them into bite-sized pieces and return to the pan.

Notes

INGREDIENTS AND SUBSTITUTES
Any vegetable(s) of choice can be added to the devilled sausages. If you do add root vegetables cooking times might need to be extended. Some people make curried sausages with apple or dried fruit, this version is low in carbs.
For sweetener, I have chosen Lakanto Brown. You can use brown sugar or unrefined sweeteners for a slightly higher carb sausages in gravy recipe. For our low carb keto followers just choose any brown (or white) sweetener you prefer. It does taste better with a little sweetening.
Find low carb sausages at the supermarket or ask your butcher to make them. I use Three Aussie Farmers sausages from Coles supermarkets. They have a range of sausages between 1-2 g net carbs per sausage. This recipe will work with any sausage choice, beef, pork, chicken, or vegetarian.
Curry Powder – I have used my Malaysian Meat Curry Powder, but you can use your favourite curry powder, like Keens Curry Powder or any curry paste you like. We have a great Massaman or Red Curry Paste that would go great with this curry sausage recipe.
Sauces – I do use gluten free Worcestershire sauce. If you prefer to use coconut aminos go for it. There are also some low carb low in sugar ketchups in the supermarket, alternatively you can use my keto Tomato Ketchup recipe.
For a delicious keto vegan devilled sausages option simply replace the sausages for vegan sausages and swap the broth for a vegetable broth.
Devilled Sausages in the Thermomix – I have included a Thermomix method and still brown the sausages in a pan. You could steam them in the basket if you prefer or squeeze meatballs of the sausage mince out of the skins straight into the sauce and cook them in the sauce in the Thermomix. Check after the first 8 minutes to see if your meatballs are cooked through and extend the time if needed.

    You can boil the sausages first to remove the fat. Takes about 5-10 minutes after boiling, depending on thickness.
    Can’t even tell they aren’t fried

    A simple, tasty meal that I really really enjoy. I ramp up the spices & add fresh chilli as well as chunks of red & green capsicum like the devilled sausages we ate in Sri Lanka. I serve it on a bed of brown rice. Sometimes I preboil the suausages or I use leftover bbq sausages.

    Another absolute winner recipe and super quick dinner.
    I chucked it all in the multicooker – pressure cook 5 mins. By the time the steam had naturally released, the cauli mash was done and an absolutely delicious dinner was on the table in 20mins flat!
    Thanks Megan… you’re a life saver.

    Curried snags are a favourite in our house so I can’t wait to try this out. There is garlic mentioned in the directions but it is not in the photo of ingredient or the list of ingredients. Did you decide it was better without? It was it missed out accidentally? If so, how many cloves of garlic should be used?

    1. Megan Mad Creations Hub

      I have fixed this now. Sorry for the confusion.
