My DH and I ate these meaty, tasty and succulent sausages in Oxford a couple of years ago, and I'm intending to tuck in again while on Kooka's World Tour. They don't have skins, and are easy to shape with your hands. My son prefers homemade sausages as so many commercial ones contain MSG (when I was growing up it was sawdust!!). Buy the meat freshly minced from your friendly butcher, or if you have a mincer, buy the meat chopped and mince it yourself at home. Hope you enjoy them - they are great for breakfast with Bacon Floddies (posted separately). Recipe adapted from UK Sausage Links.
