Devilled Sausages

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) 


  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
  2. Place whole sausages into the oven on a baking paper lined tray for 20-25 minutes or until cooked through.
  3. 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).
  4. Then add the onions and cook until browned.
  5. 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.
  6. Then add the gravy to the frypan and mix well with the onions.
  7. 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.
  8. Then allow the mixture to get to a nice simmer before serving with the steamed vegetables and mashed potato.
