30 years ago or so, I had these in a pub in Wales and they were outstanding. Glad I finally found a recipe for them.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 5 ounces fresh white breadcrumbs
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 3 ounces grated cheese (, recommend a smoky or extra sharp cheese - if you are REALLY brave, try it with gorgonzola!)

  • pepper
  • 1 pinch dry mustard
  • 1 whole egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • flour (to coat)


  1. Mix breadcrumbs and cheese, finely chopped onion and seasoning.

  3. Make into 12 even sized sausage shapes and roll in flour.
  4. Coat in beaten egg white and flour.
  5. Fry in hot fat or oil.

A pleasure to make these especially since I live in Glamorgan! Very simple to make with easy ingredients. I used Caerphilly cheese (Welsh) which isn't too sharp and barely a half teaspoon of ready mixed mustard which gave them a 'tangy' flavour. They cooked quickly and were delicious with a mixed salad and a loaf of fresh bread on the side.
