I’m sharing another one of my frugal and budget go-to recipes that help keep my grocery bill as low as possible, and my belly full.
I love this recipe because its under $10 in total to make and is the perfect winter warmer. It’s a simple dish with simple flavours that warm you up from the inside. We regularly have this on our meal planner.
I also love this recipe because I can get everything from Aldi without any other supermarket trips.

- 500gm Aldi Pork Sausages (or sausage of choice)
- ½ tablespoon of Aldi Extra Virgin Olive Oil (or other choice of oil)
- 1 large onion sliced
- 100ml water
- 250ml Gravy – I use 3 Tablespoons of Aldi Traditional Gravy Mix made with 250mls of boiling water (or you can use 250ml of your own desired gravy)
- 750-1kg of mashed potato as desired (I make this in my Thermomix at the same time as making this dish to save time and I use the recipe from the Everyday Cookbook)
- 2 cups of steamed vegetables of your choice (I love peas and beans with this dish, and I use frozen to save money)
- Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
- Place whole sausages into the oven on a baking paper lined tray for 20-25 minutes or until cooked through.
- Whilst the sausages are cooking you can make the onion gravy base. To do this heat the oil in a large fry pan on high heat (Note: Make sure the fry pan is capable of holding the sausages, onions and gravy).
- Then add the onions and cook until browned.
- Add 100mls to the onions then turn down the heat to low. Use a spatula to scrape as much of the cooked-on onions from the bottom of the frypan and combine.
- Then add the gravy to the frypan and mix well with the onions.
- Once the sausages are cooked through use a knife (or my favourite a pair of food grade shears/ scissors) to cut up the sausages and add to the onion and gravy mix in the frypan.
- Then allow the mixture to get to a nice simmer before serving with the steamed vegetables and mashed potato.
