Another year....

Food on Friday: Sausages


I hope you like a good sausage just as much as I do.  Please add to the collection any dishes involving sausages or sausage meat.  Any type of sausage – veggie options most welcome!

To add your dishes, just put the name of the dish together with your blog name/name into the first Mr Linky box you will find below.  Then paste the url for your post about it into the second box.

I'll be pinning the dishes to this Pinboard which will make it easy for you to check them out at a glance.  The Pinboard also has on it the recipes from the first time we did sausages as a theme.

Here's to the humble banger!

Nostalgia alert!

Scotch Eggs

The first time I remember knowing about Scotch Eggs was when we were taught how to make them at cooking class at Primary School.  Back in those days all the girls went to cooking class once a week and the boys went to woodwork!  Can you imagine!

So Scotch Eggs are nostalgic for me.  I have occasionally bought them from the supermarket deli but haven't made them myself for decades!

As you can see a hard-boiled egg is surrounded by sausage meat or mince (ground beef) and then baked.  If you cook the eggs too much before the baking they'll get an unattractive blue ring around the yolk.
