I am browning sausages for a casserole.
The bastards keep rolling all over the place.

Get Scottish Lorne sausages then smile They are square slices and very yummy.

I do them on a rack over a baking tray in the oven.

Small frying pan/more sausages. If you have to cram them in the pan, they keep each other from rolling around.

Or just don't brown them and enjoy eating pale looking bangers

Cook them in the oven.
Baking tray covered in foil, 200C, half an hour.
They brown all over and you just throw away foil.
No greasy frying pan or oil spattered hob.

Now I really, really want a square sausage sandwich angry

Lorne sausage. Made for sandwiches.

I think I'm the only Scot who dislikes Lorne Sausage

Our local butcher does square sausage stuffed with haggis, it is vvv nice.

Lorne sausage is pink. How can you trust sausage that is pink?

wahwahwah Tue 18-Oct-11 17:37:36

I think it has the look of honesty about it. Not like those sneaky Cumberland sausages...

abendbrot Tue 18-Oct-11 17:45:03

What with all the herbs and things... but since when has pink been the colour of honesty?

wahwahwah Tue 18-Oct-11 17:48:07

Apparently a study found that people who blush are thought to be more honest. I thought the same went for sausages.

supadupapupascupa Tue 18-Oct-11 17:51:15

you need to brown them in a griddle pan - one of those with ridges in. it 'hugs' the sausages so they don't move. Also pricking them prevents major curling

Goddamit, I now want a lorne sausage and a peshwari nann. This pasta bake just won't cut it.

On a more pratical note, I second third the oven method for giving sausages an all over tan smile

MrsRobertDuvall Tue 18-Oct-11 18:45:56

I normally cook sausages in the oven, but just wanted to brown them a bit so they wouldn't be pale and willy-like.
It tasted lovely though.

Morrisons do a blue plastic tray of 16 sausages and they are square. (They're cheap too, and actually not bad considering. Nicer than most of the other "budget" sausages out there, and if you're casseroling them they'd be fine)

whackamole Tue 18-Oct-11 19:06:11

Eww you can't NOT brown sausages before they go in a casserole. You get sausage foreskin if you don't.

<<voice of experience>>

wahwahwah Tue 18-Oct-11 19:07:27

I don't want to ask... but...
