Leftover Sausage and Egg Curry

One of the real drudges of eating well as a single person living alone is summoning up the energy to cook properly. So easy to succumb to the temptation of the takeaway or the supermarket ready made meal. A good way to break your bank balance too as these are expensive ways to eat.

That is why I am great believer in cooking more than is needed and this Leftover Sausage and Egg Curry is an excellent example of how I approach using the extras that I cook.

Leftover Sausage and Egg Curry

Serves 1

Preparation Time: 10 mins


  • 1 Large Cooked Sausage (any variety)
  • 1 or 2 Hard-Boiled Eggs
  • 1 Bowl Cooked Rice and Vegetables
  • 1 Jar Curry Sauce
  • Pepper
  • Salt


  1. The rice I had leftover was mixed with peas and broad beans. Place sufficient to match your appetite into a microwaveable bowl.
  2. Slice the sausage lengthwise then crosswise into smallish chunks. Add to the bowl with the rice mixture.
  3. Spoon in 4-5 tablespoons of your chosen curry sauce. I used a mild one from the supermarket that costs very little. You could use a better one to match your taste or the curry sauce that can be made from granules.
  4. Mix together well, adding a little more curry sauce if needed.
  5. Cover and microwave on high for 2-3 minutes. (900W Oven)
  6. While it is cooking, shell then slice the egg(s).
  7. Taste the rice mixture to ensure it is thoroughly heated. Cover and return to the microwave for around 1 minute if it is not.
  8. Once it is thoroughly heated, layer the eggs around the edge then re-cover.
  9. Return to the microwave for a further 30 seconds to heat the eggs.
  10. Leave to stand for about 1 minute then remove carefully as the bowl will be hot.
  11. Sprinkle on a little salt and pepper to finish.
  12. Eat and enjoy.


Vary the flavour either with the type of sausage or the curry sauce. There are probably hundreds of different ways that this meal could be served.

Preparation Notes

Re-heating food in the microwave can get a little messy at times so be sure to cover the bowl otherwise there is a microwave clean ahead.

For a better appearance to the finished food then transfer to a clean bowl after it is cooked. It does increase the washing-up though.
