Just cooked a sausage casserole that I'vme done a million times. Used big fat butchers posh sausages and cooked it for 1 hour 35 mins (packet said 1 hour) in a preheated oven on a higher temperature than the packet said (i use one of those herb mixes you add water to) and when we started eating the sausages were pink but really boiling hot so we carried on everything seemed ok. I've had a google and apparently this is fairly normal for posh sausages and especially in a casserole but I'm 36 weeks pregnant and now i am worried I've been silly. Any views?! Thanks.

It's fine. I work in a bakery and our sausage rolls look pink compared to others, but that's just how they are sometimes

It's normal with big fat quality butcher's sausages. The meat just looks a bit pinker, even when cooked. In the same way, if you get a pork pie from a good butcher, the meat is pinker than a supermarket one, which often look a bit grey!

It'll be fine. I think when you cook sausages in a casserole they always look a different colour to frying/grilling. You're not giving them the same kind of heat, a bit like Amser says about sausage rolls.

Absolutely fine! Bet it was nice.

Phew thanks all! It was really nice which is why we carried on. Love a sausage casserole!

If it ever happens in future and prevents you enjoying the meal just chop them up and give them a quick fry to brown the middle up.

Mmmm. I love a sausage casserole too. It was the first meal DP cooked for me. He didn't brown off the sausages so they looked like floating willies grin. It tasted great so I suggested browning would add a little extra to make it fantastic smile.
