Absolutely delicious! The taste of the rosemary was wonderful and they weren't too difficult to make. I found some long stems of rosemary and broke of the hard bottom bit to make the skewers - it held together perfectly. I'll being serving this again and again.

These were a little fiddly to prepare but worth it, I also used dried rosemary as at xmas they had run out of fresh, so i used a cocktail stick to hold them in place. They were a real success everbody commented on them especially the meat lovers!

They were simply beautiful! Guests loved them - the taste of rosemary infusion and the look. My suggestion is to add no oil as sausages have enough fat whch cooks them without drying them out. A sureshot success as a Xmas side
