    Hi Kat,
    This devilled sauce is a favourite in our house too! On BBQ night at our place, we cook up a huge 24 pack of sausages, the kids eat a few, then I dice up the remaining into 2 or 3 portions and freeze them. So easy to whip up the sauce in my thermomix and throw in the diced sausages to warm. 10 minutes and dinner is served with salad and pasta or rice! And the 24 pack gives us 3 or 4 meals! =)ReplyCancel

      Fantastic idea, Kimberly! I love it.:)ReplyCancel

Friday night dinners in our home typically mean something fun like Pizza, Mexican, Pasta however it’s usually no side servings of vegetables, but that doesn’tmean no veg!! On this nightI made a double batch of homemade beef sausage rolls. I’ll freeze some to have on hand for lunch boxes, I can easily pop them in […]

    These were a bit fiddlier than I expected (I accidentally whizzed my veggies to mush in the Thermomix!), but once they were cooked- delicious! My kids can’t stop devouring them, and I’ve got heaps in the freezer for my next ‘I can’t be bothered’ easy night. Great recipe! :DReplyCancel

    • Amy

      Also, I’ve just realised- the recipe says to add two eggs into the bowl, but your photo above has four?ReplyCancel

      • Katrina

        Hi Amy, they are very yummy i agree! Yes it is 4 eggs, i just had a quick look on the recipe to double check so for any confusion.ReplyCancel

        • Jennifer

          Step 5 refers to 2 eggs and then step 6 refers to whisk the eggs. Assume step 5 shouldn’t include the eggs? I love this recipe and always have some rolls frozen as a back up plan :)ReplyCancel

  • Samantha

    Could I use 1kg of beef mince instead of using sausage meat?ReplyCancel

    • Katrina

      Hi Samantha, Yes i can’t see why you couldn’t. Let me know how they turn out.:)ReplyCancel

  • Angela

    I’ve made these twice now… Very popular with the family. The second batch had a lot of liquid while they were cooking but I rescued them by cooking them for a bit on a wire rack to dry the bottom. All good still gobbled up.ReplyCancel

    • Katrina - The Organised Housewife

      They are so yummy, very popular with our family too.:)ReplyCancel

  • Samantha

    Thank you Katrina, I finally made these using 1kg mince instead of mix with sausage mix and they were so delicious! They will differently be on my favourites listReplyCancel

    • Katrina - The Organised Housewife

      Fantastic! Yes they are also a huge hit in our family too.:)ReplyCancel

  • Misty

    These look great! I’ve been searching for freezer friendly food for lunchboxes this year as my oldest starts school! Trying to plan ahead to keep her lunchbox interesting AND healthy. These will be great to mix things up every now and then :)
    So just clarifying… Can these be cooked from frozen or do I defrost before popping them in the oven? Thanks heaps!!!ReplyCancel

    • Katrina - The Organised Housewife

      Misty, i like to cook them before freezing them. Then when you are ready for them you just have to defrost.ReplyCancel

  • Rebekah

    I dont always have sliced bread on hand but I do have a supply of homemade breadcrumbs I keep. What would the weight equivalent be that is needed? Thanks.ReplyCancel

  • kerrie

    I just need clarification on 2 things please .

    1. How many eggs is it. 2 or 4.

    2. Are they cooked before freezing or not.

    Thank you.ReplyCancel

    • Katrina - The Organised Housewife

      Hi Kerrie, It is 4 egss ( sorry i know the picture shows 2 ) and yes i cook them before freezing.:)ReplyCancel

  • kerrie

    Thank you Katrina.ReplyCancel

  • Angela

    Thankyou for another great recipe. When you say you put these in your childrens lunch box, Do you put them in a thermos – hot? Or do your children eat them cold?ReplyCancel

    • Katrina - The Organised Housewife

      Hi Angela, My kids take them cold, they are just as nice.:)ReplyCancel

  • What do you suggest to serve with sausage &vegetables bakeReplyCancel

    • Katrina - The Organised Housewife

      Hi Kay, I usually serve it with a little mash potato on the side as it already has all the vegetables in the bake. Sweet mash potato is also very nice too.ReplyCancel

  • H.

    I prefer to add potato to the bake in place of the pasta. It’s more nutritional and makes for a ‘one pot’ dinner as well, with less washing up.ReplyCancel

    • Katrina - The Organised Housewife

      Great idea.:)ReplyCancel

Winter in our home is usually filled with lots of slow cooked meals and casseroles. Last year I frequently made beef stroganoff. This year I thought I would mix it up and try something a little different… sausage stroganoff, kid friendly and a real family pleaser. We love sausage meals, the kids always enjoy them […]

This recipe is for those nights that you want to have dinner cooked and served fast.

    Would love your recipe for the actual meatballs – it’d be great to have a few batches in the freezer (I need gluten free so the supermarket ones are no good for me).ReplyCancel

    • Sue I cheated on this recipe and purchased them from the supermarket.ReplyCancel

      • Sue Nicholls

        I ended up mixing up a big batch of meatballs yesterday, as I had just bought mince and wanted to have some ready in the freezer. I’m using 1/3 in your recipe tonight so if they pass the test I’ll post my recipe. I was low on breadcrumbs so they may end up falling apart but we’ll see.ReplyCancel

Pasta Bakes are a meal that I can easily make through the day, pop in the fridge, head out to sports in the evening and when I get home I put it in the oven. The kids will shower and by the time they are finished dinner is ready. I have been making very healthy […]

I really liked this recipe, it is filled with loads of vegetables and chickpeas. I found this recipe at Claire K Creations, I used a 250g jar of mango chutney, next time I will use 3/4 of the jar as I felt the whole jar was too overpowering.

    Was I the only one to notice that the recipe is titled Moroccan Beef but the ingredients list says lamb? I guess I noticed more because I am a lamb producer ….??ReplyCancel

This post is sponsored by Nuffnang I love Chinese food, but we don’t have it often as it adds up for a growing family of 5. However I discovered the new Maggi Stir Fry Creations sauces earlier this year and we loved them. I often use a stir through sauce in a stir fry for […]

It was a winner with all of us and I think it will become a regular meal..!ReplyCancel

I found this recipe on the back of a Gravox Pepper Steak Gravy mix packet many years ago, it’s absolutely delicious and a nice ‘occasional’ accompaniment to a good piece of steak. Unfortunately I forgot to take a photo when I cooked it recently, however on myendeavourto see if Gravox had a photo (which they […]
