I love sausages (fnar fnar) and was thinking of doing a sausage and apple traybake type thing when we have friends over, but I'm not sure if it looks a As opposed to doign a roast or something.

FWIW they would be the 96% meat ones- Debbie & Harry or something? rather than asda smart price ones.

what do you think?

Nowt like a good sausage (more sniggering) what about getting some really decent butchers sausages?

Make sure you get more than you need as they don't tend to be all the same size.

Definately NBU.


Changing2011 · 04/04/2011 12:47

sausages for tea this week I think!

LOVE sausages...

Bangers and mash is one of my favourite meals, with rich onion gravy of course!


woopsidaisy · 04/04/2011 12:51

Can I recommend this recipe? It is fricking delicious!


Changing2011 · 04/04/2011 12:51

I love them with beans and fried egg too.

If sausages & mash are good enough for Gary Rhodes to serve in his posh restaurants, they're good enough for anyone....


Parmallama · 04/04/2011 12:54

Ta for the recipe...looks fab.

Must try!


Bloodymary · 04/04/2011 12:55

Aworryingtrend · 04/04/2011 12:56

Thanks all, sausages it is! Woospidaisy that does look yummy for another time but I was thinking of this Mn recipe which I've made before and is so yummy:

Love sausages too! Bangers and mash and toad in the hole are my favourites.

But if anyone were to give me sausage and apple, I think I'd sick up in my throat Sad

I would be utterly delighted to be served sausages on almost any occasion (had them for our wedding :)).

I did my first Ocado shop this week and had an outdoor reared/free range sausage from the service counter which was amazing - can definitely recommend.


DitaVonCheese · 04/04/2011 13:00

Hmm ... don't like mustard though so would depend how mustardy the gravy is.

Wish DH wasn't veggie! :(


OTheHugeManatee · 04/04/2011 13:14

YANBU, as long as they're not those dodgy sausages that are mostly made of rusk and sawdust and shrivel up when you cook them.


caughtinanet · 04/04/2011 13:20

Thanks for the Hairy Bikers link woops - it looks delicious


skybluepearl · 04/04/2011 13:23

yes but only with really really nice sausages though


BitOfFun · 04/04/2011 13:25

I had heard that Debbie Harry knew her way around a bit of sausage, so I'm sure you can trust her judgement.


knockinonyerdoor · 04/04/2011 13:27

Sausages are lovely. My friend got married a couple of years ago and served sausage and mash at the reception - gorgeous proper meaty sausages, 'posh' mash (i.e. still a bit lumpy with bits of peel in Grin, lovely thick gravy. Everyone I told about it went Shock but it was brilliant!


OTheHugeManatee · 04/04/2011 19:19

skyblue Are nice sausages made from the same pigs as nice ham? Grin


MorticiaAddams · 04/04/2011 19:29

Will they be visiting on a Sunday? I would be very disappointed if I went to dinner expecting Sunday roast and was given sausages. I do love them at any other time though.


dontcallmepeanut · 04/04/2011 19:34

DS loves sausage casserole... Ensures a clean plate...
But yeah, I see no harm in it.


Cristiane · 04/04/2011 19:38

This is so good and looks beautiful

Great for guests
