This Thermomix devilled sausage recipe is a favourite on the Bellini Addicts facebook page. I gave it a try (having never devilled a sausage in my life) but I found it too spicy and over-seasoned for my taste. I later discovered that devilled sausages are meant to be spicy -and my recipe tweaks had led me far, far away from the original (hence the title).
It’s not a pretty looking dish, but it got the toddler tick of approval. Mr Bellini and I cleared our plates too. The sausages are steamed then cooked in the sauce (sounds disgusting but tastes lovely). As they aren’t fried, there’s no room for a bad sausage in this dish so buy some nice (ie probably expensive) pork sausages for it.
Oh and it’s a great one jug meal – the potatoes steam in the basket while the the sausages cook on the top. So it’s nice and quick and saves on washing up.
Not-devilled sausages with apple and onion
- 8 pork sausages or 12 chipolatas
- 1 brown onion
- 1 Granny Smith apple
- 250ml/ g of tap water (not hot)
- 1 tsp soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon tomato paste
- 1 tablespoon worchestershire sauce
- 1/2 teaspoon dijon mustard
- 2 tsp brown sugar
- 1 rounded tablespoon of cornflour
- 1 clove garlic
- 5 potatoes peeled and quartered
- 20 g butter
- 50 g milk
- olive oil
Blade/s: Chopping + stirring
1. Fit chopping blade. Add 1L of hot water to jug. Put potatoes in the simmer basket with a large pinch of salt.
Put sausages in the steamer tray and put it on top of the jug.
I arranged the sausages around the edge of the tray, and put baking paper inside the lid to make steaming more effective).
2. Cook at Sp3, ST temp for 20 min.
3. Leave sausages to cool. Wrap potatoes in foil or place in a warming dish to keep warm. Empty jug of water.
4. Either chop apple, garlic and onion in the jug (Sp5 for 7 sec) or chop by hand or V-slicer (I decided to use my V slicer to get nice thin slices for this and have a little more texture in the sauce).
5. Change blade to stirring. If your apples, onion and garlic aren’t in the jug yet, add them now. Add a generous splash of olive oil.
6. Cook on Sp1 at ST temp for 5 min (n.b. ST temp sometimes leaves a burn mark – if you don’t want to risk it, cook on 100C instead).
7. Slice sausages into large chunks (I cut the chipolatas in thirds). Add to the jug.
8. Add water, soy sauce, tomato paste, worcestershire sauce, mustard, brown sugar and cornflour to the jug. Cook on Sp1 at 100C for 10 min. Take sausage mixture from the jug and clean.
9. Add potatoes, butter, salt, and hot milk to the clean jug (n.b. you can heat the milk in the Bellini if you want, but I just zapped it in the microwave as it’s quicker). Mash for 10 sec on Sp5, or until as smooth as you prefer.
10. Serve sausages with mashed potato.
