Smoked Sausage Stroganoff

A friend shared a recipe with me for a dish called "Fancy Hotdogs". I didn't have any hotdogs in, but I did have a smoked sausage in, which I thought would add more flavour anyway. I also added mushrooms for extra flavour (and because I love mushrooms!). The recipe suggests you serve it with pasta, but we ate it as it was. Quite tasty, considering it was made with store cupboard items!

Serves 1 adult, 2 children

1 smoked sausage ring, sliced 1 cm thick
1 onion, chopped
10 button mushrooms, sliced
Oil or butter for frying
150ml soured cream
Fresh parsley to garnish

Heat the oil/butter and fry the onion, mushrooms & sausage together until softened and golden. Add the soured cream and let simmer for 3 minutes. Add a little bit of water if it is too thick or not saucy enough. Serve with rice or pasta, and garnish with parsley.


  1. Mushrooms! Who doesn’t love them? You know, in my experience, throwing in red bell peppers or chili powder in the mix really brings out the flavor of the dish. Besides, just by looking at it, don’t you think it would taste better spicy?

  2. I add smoked paprika for flavour, Im not keen on overly spicy food.

  3. May I ask how many calories this meal has? X

  4. Sorry, I have no idea, though it should be easy to run through a calorie cou ter.
