Helen, I think that making your own sausages is well worth the effort. It is a bit of effort and experimentation to get a good flavour but well worth it.

The batch that Fiona mentioned never made it to the table because we snaffled the entire pan full on the spot!

Welcome to the forum, by the way! Smile

just found this post and I am drooling!!

Toulouse makes a good sausage similar to a cumbrian one in the uk, but good quality bacon is impossible to find; I miss it sooo much and stockup whenever wecome back to the uk!!

Hi Danny

I can thoroughly recommend the 'Old English' sausage from the butchers at Kedington (not far from you, just head SW go past the prison and turn left). They are superbly seasoned!

This butchers is kept hidden by the locals and I've only recently become a regular customer. Last time I was in there the butcher was jointing a roe deer and we had an interesting discussion about cooking venison. Worth a little excursion 😉

Have a great weekend brekky

Thanks for the tip, Magic Cochin.

I do love a great sausage. Only trouble with Keddington is that I never get past that turn by the prison. Despite brandishing my "Get out of gaol free" card, my prepared script of "Ossifer, I am innocent. Hang the other ba**t*rd. I'm only here for the sausages." never seems to work. Perhaps I should take elocution lessons?

Seriously, we will try the Keddington Eight and fry the bu$$ers imediately!

This morning I was in the other butchers I regularly frequent - Highgate Country Stores in Willingham - and admitted that I now preferred another butcher's sausages. Well!!!! that got a reaction!!! Who would have thought butchers were so competitive!!!!

I was quizzed at length about why I like the Kedington Old English better than the array of flavours in front of me on their counter. And then I was then handed a free selection pack of sausages to sample and pass judgement on.

And of course they want the recipe for the Old English sausage! I'd like to know the secret ingredient too - but it's probably a closely guarded secret. I'll have to ask some subtle questions when I go to Kedington.

Looking forward to testing the sausages...

PS:  I did tell the Highgate butchers that their lamb leg steaks are fabulous!

Oh Celia

Lucky you - being given sausages!

We have two companies here in Newmarket that make the famous Newmarket sausage - and they are hugely competitive.

I was shopping this evening for our weekend Brunch menu. We have tried various sausage brands, including one pretty decent discount brand from Tesco, but the key ingredient of great weekend brunch sausages is - a reduced spice content.

So I plumpled for standard pork sausages. Less spice and more flavour. But I did pirchase a Waitrose economy brand (tightwad = me) so we will see how they turn out.

Celia - hard neck gets better results! Laugh

Morrisons- Debbie and Andrew ( I think that's the brand name) Breakfast sausages. Well, all that brand's sausages are worth trying. Waitrose Lincolnshire are pretty good too- and as for the pork and black pudding ones from the butchery counter....and the Gloucester Old Spot...most disappointed there isn't a drooling smiley...

french toast.  pancakes.  Danish pastries.  omlette.  boiled eggs.  Poached eggs.  tomatoes on toast.  Beans on toast.pain au chocolat. toast with banana, peanur butter and chocolate spread, made into a sandwich.  If it was fried as in french toast I think Elvis would find our house.

hmmm pain au chocolat.  PB makes great pain au chocolat

sorry no pig products in my house.  pb has to bbq them as I wont let him cook it inside.

Although a really nice veggie breakfast would be toast, fried eggs, lots of mushrooms fried in butter, canned plum tomatoes, baked beans, heinz obvioulsy.  And lashings of brown sauce.  yum

can you tell I love food?SurprisedEmbarassed

Well, my darling declared that she is not really keen on hash browns after all. Seems unreasonable for me to keep the oven on for 40 minutes, between pre-heating and cooking the critters.

Self-sacrifice prevails.Yell

No more hash browns (and she has demanded a 50/50 split of the sausages). Global warming has nothing on this disastrous development.

I will keep you guys posted on developments !!

Are you saying that you cook Hash Browns in the oven?  I've only ever had them fried.

I'll try that again!

Well, we buy the ready-made frozen ones. McCain's actually (quite a good brand, in fairness).

Never had them pan fried. Then again, I have not enjoyed the fantastic, romantic, globe trotting lifestyle that you experienced, TA.

I have lived in Horsham and Newmarket. Neither are yet globally recognised hotbeds of the pan fried hash brown Yell
