9. Most retro recipe.
Looking around and seeking advice for ridiculous retro recipes, curried sausages were suggested. I promptly set out to search for a recipe, and came across this one from The Australian Women's Weekly. This one had the dubious distinction of having a tin of apricot nectar included in the ingredients. After striking out on the first shopping trip, the nectar was soon obtained and it was all systems go.
Instead of 800g of dead sausages, I used two 300g packets of Sanitarium Veggie Delights BBQ sausages, and I didn't bother roasting them first, I just cut them and added them when required. I used only half the amount of curry powder, because I don't like things too spicy, even when using mild curry powder. The instructions say to add chutney, but there is no chutney in the ingredients, so I just served it on the side. The result? Interesting. It was kind of like a cross between slightly curried sausages and apricot chicken... but made with sausages. My mum wasn't the biggest fan, my dad really enjoyed it. I found it was much better the second day when I took it to work as leftovers for lunch.
Served with super buttery mashed potatoes and peas, retro style!
As an aside, I later found another different recipe for curried sausages in an old cookbook of Mum's that had banana, raisins and shredded coconut in it. Interesting...
