To Finish – Curried Sausages Dutch Oven Style

Sausages prepared this way was a staple in my household growing up. I of course being a creature of habit adjusted my mother’s recipe to suit the picky eaters in my family – hence sausage skin removal.

My other favorite additive is to add a packaged gravy mix at the end of the cooking time instead of adding flour as a thickener before adding the stock.

Hope you enjoy this recipe and are inspired to make necessary changes so those in your family eat this sausage dish.
