Cheese and Onion Stuffed Sausages

"Nice quick way to spriten up some plain beef sausages. I'd personally always go with natural cheese rather than processed for something like this but other pizza style cheeses like mozzarella would be good for a variation."

Ready In:




  • Par-boil sausages for around 10 minutes in boiling water, drain and allow to cool just a little.
  • Finely grate cheese and onion together in a small bowl.
  • Cut a slit down the middle of each sausage for around 2/3 of the length that goes half-way through.
  • Press equal amounts of the mixture well down into the sausage.
  • Transfer to a hot BBQ / grill and cook around 10-15 minutes over a fairly moderate heat (without turning for obvious reasons).

    A great way to tart up sausages. Really moreish and very quick and easy. I used 100% pork sausages. I won't post the photo as the current one by The Flying Chef is devine. Thank you Peter J for posting such a simple and easy way to serve sausages.

    My butcher only had sausage patties so instead made a topping vs. stuffing. By no fault of the recipe or chef, but by my personal taste the sausage was very rich to be cooked on the grill. I had never had sausage cooked this way and am acustomed to having sausage in sauces, not just grilled. I would like to try this on keilbasa or hot dogs because the cheese/onion mixture was very good.

    Simple, quick, delicious. I used brats, parboiled them, and then finished them under the broiler. The kids wanted seconds - high praise, indeed! Thank you for posting. Made for ZWT5, for the Groovy GastroGnomes.

    These were very easy and tastad great! I used beef brats and cheddar. I also cooked on top of the stove because it was raining out. Just covered the pan.... and they were great! Made for ZWT5


<p>I live close Hobart in Tasmania, a wonderful part of Australia but a little chilly in winter so be sure to book your holiday for summer! I'm self-employed in the embedded electronics area and being at home most of the day gives me plenty of time to prepare those recipes with long preparation and cooking times. As most of my clients are either interstate or overseas I get to occasionally catch up with them and enjoy their local restaurants, always nice to have someone else paying the bills! <br /> <br />As well as food I'm partial to the odd beer &amp; wine, so often like to go to a local pub and catch some local bands. No need for an alarm clock in the morning, my cat Molly likes her breakfast at 8:00AM sharp and makes an effective alarm! Lately I've been starting to get into some digital photography so you might be seeing a few additional recipe shots on Zaar... <br /> <br /><a href=> <br /><img src= alt= /></a></p>
