Curried Sausages is an Australian and British classic and an easy, delicious, and affordable meal for the whole family.
Curried Sausage is as retro as it gets!! It is the food that so many of us remember from our childhood; it disappeared and became a bit "uncool," but I am bringing it back because it's tasty, quick, and easy to make, cooks in one pan, and the kids love it!
It takes under 30 minutes and is a great one-pot meal. Serve it with rice, mashed potatoes, or fries!
These notes are here to help make this recipe a success; they cover some but not all ingredients; for a complete ingredient list, check out the recipe card below.
- Sausages: Any sausage link works for this recipe. You can pick beef, pork, chicken, or turkey sausages. You could even use a vegetarian sausage! Buy a good quality sausage as they taste much better and keep their shape better. For those in the US - You want to use sausage links or the pre-cooked sausages from the chiller section.
- Onions: Use any onions you like for this recipe; brown, white, or red onions will work well.
- Veggies: –I like using carrots, frozen peas, and corn. But you can add any veg that you want.
- Curry powder: You can use any curry powder blend that you have available. Each brand will have a slightly different flavor and taste. So pick one that you like.
- Broth: This adds flavor to the curry gravy. You can use beef, chicken, or vegetable broth.
- All Purpose (Plain) flour: This is added to thicken the curry gravy. To make the dish gluten-free, you can thicken it with cornstarch, but this affects the ability to freeze the finished dish.

- If you have leftover sausages from a BBQ, then you can use these and skip the sausage cooking step!
- Add coconut milk or a splash of heavy cream if you like a creamy curry.
- Add a pinch of red pepper flakes or cayenne pepper to make the curry spicier.
- When adding the broth, add a small amount and then stir well. The mixture will clump together like wet sand. But keep slowly stirring in your broth, and your mix will come together beautifully smooth.
- If you like a sweetness to your curry, add some chunks of apple or some sultanas.
Making ahead of time

We always have leftover sausage, but I never think about making the curry dish with it. This was delicious. I’ll make it again.

I love trying new recipes, and this Curried Sausage inspires me so much, I had never thought of cooking curry and sausage together.

It is such a comforting retro combination 🙂
You mentioned sugar in the instructions, but it is not in the ingredients list.
Claire McEwen says
Thanks for the spot. Sometimes what is in my head isn't what I write on the screen. There is no sugar in the curry. But if you like sweetness then a chopped up apple works well.
Hope that clears things up 🙂
