Traditional Glamorgan Sausages

Glamorgan sausages are famous in Wales, and they are very tasty. These sausages are vegetarian (not vegan because they have eggs and milk in them) and mainly made with leek and cheese. Caerphilly cheese is the classic, traditional choice, although you might not be able to get it where you live, so if you cannot find it, use mild cheddar instead. If you cannot get leek, or do not want to use it, use the white parts of green onions (spring onions) or else regular yellow or white onion instead. Another substitution is switching the dried mixed herbs for a tablespoon of fresh parsley and ½ teaspoon of thyme.

All you need to do to make these is combine the ingredients, shape the sausages and pan fry them in oil and/or butter. Because these sausages are vegetarian, they have a very short cooking time. Serve them with salad or vegetables. If you usually only have meat sausages, why not try these? They certainly make a change of pace from regular pork or beef sausages, and the flavour is refreshing and deliciously different.

Glamorgan sausages are traditional Welsh sausages which were originally made with Glamorgan cheese. This particular variety is no longer made because sadly the Glamorgan cattle used to make it are near-extinct. Caerphilly cheese is usually used in its place. This is a descendent of Glamorgan cheese and offers a very similar flavour and texture. Mild cheddar is a bit different, but will work if you cannot get Welsh cheese. Continue reading

Creative Sausage Plait

This delicious pie can be served hot, warm or even cold. In England it is typically served with baked beans (cooked white beans in a sweet tomato sauce) or a simple green salad. This is known as sausage plait because the pastry is plaited (braided) over the filling to make an attractive presentation. This dish can be compared to a grownup version of the humble sausage roll, but it is no harder to make; in fact the preparation is very similar. There are some hidden vegetables sneaked into this recipe, making it ideal for picky youngsters in your house. Mince the red bell peppers finely and the little ones will not know they are there.

Whether you are enjoying sausage plait for lunch or dinner, or taking a slice or two to work or a picnic, you are sure to love the different flavours and textures it offers. You can tweak the recipe however you wish, adding any herbs you happen to have or swapping the red bell pepper for another vegetables which needs to be used up. Leave out the chilli if you prefer a mild finish or add extra for added spice.

Try pork and leek sausages with sage and black pepper if you cannot get the pork and apple kind, or if you prefer something more savoury. You will need about 14 oz (400g) of sausages which is about 6 large ones. You will be using the meat and discarding the sausage casings. Why not get the kids to help make this? They can help squeeze the meat out of the sausages and even help plait the pastry over the filling. Continue reading
