No! I eat a lot of out of date stuff, but not sausages!

No ladies I think you're right. That's a pain in the neck! Thanks though.

Of course I would, people are obsessed about 'use by' dates - when I grew up we never had dates on our food hmm.

Just eat them, as a country it is shocking how much food we waste.

If they smell fine, and are still shiny, I am sure there will be no problem if cooked through thoroughly. If they have gone rather greasy on the outside, and are no longer shiny, I would probably bin.

A "Use by" date is really only a "Best before" date. It doesn't mean they are deadly poisonous the following day.

Yup, if they smell fine and look fine I would and have.

No probably yes, would stick them in a casserole or something

Yup, I would.

I would! If it looks and smells ok, I eat it -use by dates are overly cautious IMO.

Only if I wanted to lose a stone in a hurry grin

I frequently eat out of date food and have never lost weight unfortunately grin.

I would too, if the look and smell ok.

As long as they looked and smelled fine then I would.

I would, too. But make sure they are really well and evenly cooked (so baked rather than fried).
