Last week marked National Sausage week for sausage lovers across the UK. With the clocks going back on Sunday 29th October and the dark nights drawing in, it’s the perfect excuse to pile up on British favourites to warm you up.
To celebrate the occasion Grandad’s sausages were on hand to send some lovely samples of their exotic pork and chilli sausages and their trusty cumberlands.
The family run business originating in Bury have been in the sausage trade for over fifty years with their Grandad Bernard starting the brand all those years ago.
The brand pride themselves in providing high quality sausages with a choice of lots of mouthwatering flavours, including the classics we can’t live without.
What do I love about sausages? You can make practically anything with them. Sausage sandwiches, sausage and mash, sausage casserole; the list is endless.
Due to the colder nights me and my boyfriend decided to make a casserole. It’s a perfect Thursday night tea, especially when you’ve got a lot of spare vegetables hanging around in your cupboards.
We didn’t follow a set recipe we just literally shoved everything in a pan including: tinned cherry tomatoes, peppers, onions, garlic, cinnamon and not forgetting the main ingredient, pork and chilli sausages.
Unfortunately my boyfriend cooked most of it so I only have this one picture but we served it on a bed of creamy mash and it was lovely!
Last year I went all experimental and attempted to make a Great British Breakfast burger. View my previous blog post here.
Are you a sausage lover as much as me? Grandad’s sausages are making their way to the Manchester Christmas Markets from Friday 24th November , situated at the back of Mr Thomas’s Chop House. Enjoy gourmet sausages paired with booze courtesy of Toms Chophouse.
It doesn’t get much better than that! Visit their website or meet them at the markets on the 24th.
