Dee's Devilled Sausages in the Crockpot

For 4-6 servings:
8-12 gluten free sausages (about 500-600g)
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 Tbsp cornflour
1/4 tsp salt
1 Tbsp soya sauce
1 Tbsp wine vinegar
1 can chopped tomatoes (400g)
1 stick celery (chopped)
1 large onion
1 can peaches (400g) - you usually use 1-2 green skinned apples, but my youngest daughter can't eat cooked apple, so I substituted them with peaches and it's YUMMY!

1. Seperate and chop the sausages into 1 cm chunks. Brown in a heavy-based frypan and throw into the crockpot with the sugar, cornflour and salt. Add the liquids and stir until smooth.

2. Chop the peeled onion length-wise and brown in the frypan you used previously. Add browned onion, celery and peaches to the crockpot, and stir into the mixture.

3. Cook for 8 hours on low setting.

Serve on rice, with baked or mashed potatoes, and beans or broccoli.

Whenever I have cooked this dish in the past I have used the Maggi Seasonings, but this time I tried cooking it from scratch. It was DELICIOUS, way better this way! As we were going out for a pot-luck tea, I made it stretch by topping the cooked sausages with mashed potatoes and cheese. Everyone loved it, it was SOOOO good! :) This is a recipe I will use again.

tastes good with canned fruitsalad (pears/peaches/pineapple) instead of the peaches. I know this because I ran out of peaches, so had to find a substitude for the hungry hoardes! :)

Hi. I was just wondering if you know that most soy-sauce isn't gluten free? Most brands use anything up to 40% wheat flour in their sauces so it's really important to buy a bottle that specifically says "gluten free". - Liz

Hi there,Thanks so much for this recipe. It was fabbo - even though I didn't put so much sugar in or cook it that long. Fantastic! I'm printing it for my recipe book! So easy with "normal" ingredients. THANKS!
