I hope this recipe gives you as much pleasure as it gives me after a lot of experimenting I feel I've recreated the sausages we grew up with at home which are no longer available. Follow the recipe and you will enjoy them either with egg and chips or even mash and gravy.

  • 25g oatmeal
  • 100g fine white/brown breadcrumbs
  • 100g Cheddar, grated
  • 5g yellow mustard English
  • 2 Small eggs

The seasoning:

  • 1g Marjoram
  • 1g Sage
  • 1g Cayenne pepper
  • 2g fine white pepper
  • 4g of salt
  • Pinch of nutmeg
  • (Correct measure of seasoning is important)

To Finish:

  • 100g white breadcrumbs


  • STEP 1
    Ensure that the meat is cold.

    In a bowl, beat the eggs and add the pork, mustard and seasoning.
  • STEP 3
    In a separate bowl, mix together the cheese, half the breadcrumbs and oatmeal
  • STEP 4
    You are aiming for the texture of mince
  • STEP 5
    Now combine the pork mixture with the breadcrumb mixture and mix well.
  • STEP 6
    Add a little water if the mixture is to heavy a good mix is crucial.

    Roll them in the second half of the dry breadcrumbs and fry in hot oil until golden brown.
  • STEP 11
  • STEP 12
    Always start to cook from a cool pan, use a little oil 1/4 inch covering on your pan and on a low heat, browning each side and turning over a 10 minuets period
