Meal Plan 3 - 9 July 2016

Quick Curried Sausages - a hearty and cheap winter dinner

Things happen and even the best planned meal plans can sometimes change. Wayne and I will be away tomorrow night, so Hannah has swapped the meal plan around and she'll be making kebabs for dinner using leftover roast meat and wraps from the freezer and salad veggies from the fridge.

On Tuesday we had curried sausages for dinner. I only had four sausages but they made six hearty serves of casserole, enough for dinner and a freezer meal.

Here's the recipe I used, it's from the Cheapskates Club Recipe File.

Quick Curried Sausages

1 sausage per person
1 potato, peeled and cubed
1 piece pumpkin, peeled and cubed
1 small sweet potato, peeled and cubed
1 large onion, peeled and diced
1 cup peas
2 tbsp curry powder - adjust to suit your taste
1 tbsp butter
1-1/2 cups MOO low-fat evaporated milk
2 tsp coconut essence

Place the sausages in a pot of cold water to cover and slowly bring to the boil. Simmer five minutes. Drain. Allow to cool a few minutes then slip the skins off the sausages. Slice into 1cm thick pieces.. Add onion, water and curry powder to a frying pan and cook until the onion is transparent. Add the other vegetables to the pan and cook two minutes, stirring constantly. Turn heat down to low. Add evaporated milk and coconut essence and stir through. Add sliced sausages to pan. Stir to cover with sauce. Simmer over a very low heat 10 minutes or until vegetables are cooked and sauce has thickened slightly. Serve over steamed rice with pappadums or naan bread.
