If Baked Beans are your thing, then you might like to try our Baked Bean Toastie! Or if sausages are your sizzle (haha!) try the Quick Sausage Tray Bake or the unique Toad in the Hole!

Breakfast is served with our Salmon Avocado Toast. Cross that with soup recipes like our Meatball Tomato Soup and Grilled Cheese and Tomato Soup and we get a bowl of chipolatas in a rich tomato sauce!

This recipe is a great alternative to either our  Zucchini Slice or Gluten Free Zucchini Slice. For something completely different try the Smashed Avocado recipe!

What is the difference between Chipolatas and Sausages?

The difference between chipolatas and sausages is their size. 

Sausages come in all different shapes and sizes with the most common being the long thin traditional beef sausage. Chipolatas are much smaller and about 1/2 the length of a regular sausage. 

Chipolata Sausages recipes are the best as they bring a party vibe to the plate with endless possibilities!!

Where to buy Chipolatas?

You can find Chipolatas at your local grocery store. I bought these beef ones at Woolies. The most common flavours are beef, pork and chicken. Some varieties have a combination of flavours like honey chicken chipolatas. 

You can also get them at the butchers. 

How to Cook Chipolatas

The best way to cook chipolatas is in a pan on the stove. This is an easy and quick method. You can also cook them on the BBQ, grill plate or in the oven. They cook much the same way as sausages, the main point of difference being the chipolatas as smaller than sausages will cook faster!

  • French pan or heavy duty fry pan
  • Wooden spoon


  • 600 grams chipolatas beef, pork or chicken Note 1 , Note 2
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 420 grams baked beans in tomato sauce
  • 425 grams condensed tomato soup
  • 1 tbsp dried onion
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 250 grams cherry tomatoes or baby roma tomatoes
  • 100 grams baby spinach leaves fresh
  • parsley to garnish Note *


Chipolatas with Baked Beans

  • Add olive oil to french pan or fry pan, turn to a medium heat
  • Add salt and pepper, dried onion, garlic powder, oregano and cumin to condensed tomato soup, stir to mix herbs into sauce
  • Place chipolatas into pan, pierce each with a tooth pick or skewer and cook until browned. This will take 4-5 mins Note 2, Note 3
  • Pour seasoned soup mix over cooked chipolatas Note 4
  • Transfer the baked beans into the pan and sprinkle spinach eaves and cut cherry tomatoes on top, heat until the spinach is just starting to wilt and the edges of the sauce are bubbling
  • Garnish with chopped parsley and serve with cracked pepper



  • Note 1 Beef, pork or chicken chipolatas will all taste delicious with the other ingredients for this recipe. You will find them in the cold meat section of the supermarket. I recommend plain flavoured chipolotas ie not chicken and honey for this recipe. We are added lots of other flavours, so plain sausages will do the trick. 
  • Note 2 The sausages I used in the photos are beef flavour. 600 grams is approx 16 sausages and they are gluten free. 
  • Note 3 If you are unsure if the chipolatas are cooked properly, remove one, cut it in half and view insides. They should be fully browned with no pink raw sausage meat visible. 
  • Note 4 Absorb any oil still in the base of the pan with paper towel as the base will be greasy enough to not need any excess mixing with the sauce.

Thanks for this recipe Adrianne! I’ve been discovering some baked beans light in certain things lately – I look for these lighter packages these days due to health restrictions – and …loving it. So, a baked bean recipe? You bet I’ll take! Plus looking at the ingredients, these are pretty healthy too. I’d probably use fresh everything as much as I can but those baked beans are going to become more interesting now! Thanks again for sharing and helping expend my kitchen creativity!

Adrianne April 4, 2020 - 5:25 pm

Hey Alex! No worries, that it great feedback, cheers, appreciate it. Yes, the spinach and cherry tomatoes tick a few boxes for sure!! Hope you enjoy it, cheers!
