Dame Edna's Sausage Pineapple Surprise

"Who better to ask about Australian food than the Dame herself? I found this recipe on the website for a San Francisco tv station. Apparently, Dame Edna, aka Barry Humphreys, stopped in and cooked this recipe on their show. Now, keep in mind the recipe is in typical Dame Edna language so I am sure you can decide to arrange your sausage any way you wish. Enjoy possums!"

Ready In:




  • Fry up the sossies in a little cooking fat until browned all over (turn well to avoid those horrid grey tummies).
  • Remove from cooking fat, keeping them nice and hot somewhere.
  • In the same cooking fat (already flecked with deliciously crisp sausage oozings) fry the pineapple rings on both sides until cooked through and soggy.
  • Drain the rings on kitchen paper and keep them hot while you sizzleup the peeled mushrooms and tomatoes, adding a dollop of extra cooking fat if necessary; but be careful they do not break.
  • Thrust each hot plump sausage cheekily through the hole of each pineapple slice.
  • Garnish with halved tomatoes seasoned with salt and pepper.
  • A spicy tomato sauce is optional for serving.

I am originally from the Philadelphia area of the United States but have been living in London, UK since 1996. I now have dual American and British citizenship. I became a widow at the age of 27 in 2004 but have managed to fall in love again and was married again on July 19, 2008. I have a double major honors degree in sociology and politics and am slowly working my way through a Masters. I am a wanabee writer but until that dream becomes a reality I work in internet marketing where I build websites for profit. So, it is nice to come to a site like this and just enjoy being on the internet rather than using it as a work environment. I am a BBW (big woman) but over the past two years I have lost over 80lbs and am working my way down the scales slowly but steadily. These days, I am trying to eat a lot less meat. So, I am trying to have as many vegetarian recipes in the week as I can manage. I have started a blog - <a href="http://weekendcarnivore.com/">Weekend Carnivore</a> where I blog about trying to eat a mostly vegetarian diet. I share a lot of my discovered recipes there. If I make one of your vegetarian recipes and I managed to take a good photo of it, chances are I will blog about it and tell everybody how much I enjoyed it. These are banners and buttons from Zaar events in which I have participated: <img src="http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y53/DUCHESS13/RSC%20Banners/RSC11-Participant.jpg"> <a href="http://s7.photobucket.com/albums/y254/Missymop/?action=view&current=metermaids.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y254/Missymop/metermaids.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/PAC08Main.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/adoptedspring08.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src=http://i335.photobucket.com/albums/m445/mliss29/vegnswap1/group14tomato.jpg> <img src=http://i335.photobucket.com/albums/m445/mliss29/vegnswap3/group07kiwi.jpg> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/cookbookZWT.jpg" border="0" alt="I am alw">
