Sausage Recipes | 50 simple meal ideas using sausages

Sausage recipes (and the sausage itself) are popular in Australia for taste, convenience, and the way a sausage goes so well with a beer! Sausages are social! They are also just damn cheap! In fact, I’d say the popularity of the sausage rests in its cost in terms of party-value in Australia. Aussies heading to BBQs across the country, who are on a budget, grab a tray of sausages.

Aussie sausages have a good reputation in terms of what might be in them. Mostly they’re made of beef, pork, chicken and even Kangaroo.

The terms snags, which most Aussies use for the word sausage, is actually derived from the traditional English style sausages, which are the cheap, thin type of sausage you can buy in bulk.

My husband is a massive sausage lover and loves all sausage recipes out there! I’ve never seen a man down so many sausages. Just like my default meal is a Spag Bol. His is snags, peas and mash. He’s passed his love to for sausages onto the kids. They have a passion for the good ole’ Aussie snag too.

If you’ve read about my Sunday Cook-Ups you will know that I always put sausages in the plan for their intrinsic money-saving value.
