Crumbed Beef Sausages

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 20 mins

Economical meal, serve with mashed potato and steamed vegetables and a gravy or barbecue sauce. Can be taken up to the crumbed point then fried to colour the crumbs and heat through in the oven. Also for a change you could spice up the crumbs with ground cayenne, chilli etc. Have also crumbed and frozen for use at a later date.

This was just pretty good. I made the recipe as stated. The crumb coating kind of took away from the sausage flavor. I'm sure it is only a personal preference, but I won't make this again.
