Spicy Sausage Parcels

Step one, find a pack of mid range sausages, these were from Lidl, Cumberland at £1.29. remove the skins and put into a bowl.



Step two, choose your spices, these are my favourite mix.


Oops, nearly forgot the garlic.


Step three, add a shake or so of each spice, to taste. i was heavy on the cumin and cinnamon this time.


Mix well together, use your hands, easier and faster than faffing with spoon or fork. Shape into balls and dredge with flour, I use gram, just because I like it.


Select your bacon, this is from Lidl and costs £1.50 a Kg.


Be sure to find a pack with thin rashers, you don't want chunky chops here.


Step four, wrap each ball in two rashers to cover.


Step five, place in a lined dish or tin so they do not touch and cook for around 25 minutes in a moderate to hot oven, mine go on the same shelf as the roasties.


Step six, place on dinner plate snuggled up to some roast chicken, roasties and veg.
 Enjoy.

I vary this, sometimes I use very good sausages and add some soft breadcrumbs and an egg. fresh sage leaves and or thyme are good.
Chopped onion and garlic softened in a little oil and mixed in when cool are yummy.
The whole finished ball can be wrapped in pastry and baked for 35 minutes and served as a main meal.

  5. Well done Pam! You are much more IT savvy than me, yes you are it has been proved! And I like your recipe too, I do something similar, and LOVE that you are keeping up our tradition of buying bacon bits! (Or 'cooking bacon' as they call it these days!) Well done again!

    1. Can not cope without the bacon, they have the thick chops as well, one pack that I bought had just 1 small joint in it, a bonus roast.
