Now dont get all exited RR person, its not what you think. :-P

We often get frozen sausages, and what I usually do is defrost them in the microwave before cooking them.

What I am wondering is... Can you cook them in the microwave ?

ie.. to make sausage sarnies etc..

Yes - make sure you prick them or else the fat will make them explode.

An ancient microwave cook books says

2 sausages = 2 1/2 mins on High.

The book assumes that High is 600w-700w.

I'd do them for 2 mins and check. Its easy to over cook & they will look anemic, but if you're putting them in a sarnie, it wouldn't matter

Thanks for +++DetEcTive+++ .

I will have to give it a try . :-D

Would be better for my cholesterol level doing them that way I think .(get rid of some of the saturated fats) :-)

Microwave heats food so well, that sausages will be very safe. But taste like pate or putty - much better on BBQ or grill :-D :-D Even worth extra risk of tummy bug (unless you are in a high risk group JLC ie young, old, or pregnant.)

Good luck!

After consideration, it might be best to cook for 1 minute, and then're going to have to experiment so don't put loads in at once in case it all goes horribly wrong!

Well... I just microwaved a couple of sausages 1min 45secs at 900.

They were cooked to perfection, and tasted OK, but I would have preferred them a golden brown looking.

I just could not believe the amount of fat that oozed out of them, and these were Beef sausages as well. :-0

Merlin Report 4 Oct 2012 13:40

have,nt you got a combo one with a built in grill? :-D

Budgie Rustler Report 4 Oct 2012 14:49

Hi Merlin, our microwave is used just for frozen meals, reheating or defrosting items and thats about it.

But with you mentioning a grill, it made me think, we have two kinds of metal lattice grills that came with the oven.
So I've been and searched and found them and the 60 page booklet that came with the oven as well.
It appears the oven has several optional cooking facilities that I didn't know about, so never used.
ie.. Slow Cooking, Multi stage Cooking, Thermal Grill Cooking, Dual Cooking and Convection Cooking.
The booklet also contain loads of recipes as well. (First time I've looked in it)

Looks a little too complicated for this old gas oven cookster :-(

Trial and Error my friend ,Thats how I sorted ours. :-D :-D :-D
