    Sackville's Note:

    This is a classic Welsh recipe, often affectionately called a "Poor Man's Sausage" because of the lack of meat. If you cannot buy Caerphilly or Lancashire cheese you could substitute a strong Cheddar cheese. This would make a good meal for vegetarians. The recipe is slightly adapted from Jane Grigson's book English Food.

    My Private Note


    Serves: 4



    Units: US | Metric

    For Frying

    • 1 egg white
    • 236.59 ml breadcrumbs
    • oil or lard


    1. 1
      This is easiest to make in a food processor, although you can mix by hand if you prefer.
    2. 2
      Mix the cheese, breadcrumbs and leek or spring onion in the processor.
    3. 3
      Whisk the yolks, herbs, mustard and seasoning together.
    4. 4
      Add to the breadcrumb and cheese mixture and whizz again in the food processor.
    5. 5
      The mixture should be quite moist and come together easily in your hand but if not add another yolk or a touch of water.
    6. 6
      Divide into 10-12 pieces and roll each into a sausage about 5 cm long.
    7. 7
      You can make them ahead to this point and store in the fridge for up to a day.
    8. 8
      Dip in egg white, roll in the extra breadcrumbs and fry until golden brown in hot oil or lard.
    9. 9
      Serve with potatoes or, for a lighter meal, with perhaps some grilled tomato and a salad.
    10. 10
      You may also like to fry a few rashers of bacon to serve on the side.

      How cool are these! Little Mr wasn't entirely sure at first but warmed to the idea... not only did fussy daughter LOVE them, she also wants to make them herself next time please! That surely ticks all the right boxes. With easy ingredients and excellent for keeping the vegetarians in the family and friends circle happy, we will be enjoying these more in the future for sure. Thanks Sackville!

      Excellent. I used whole eggs by mistake and they still worked out. I also used a mixture of cream cheese and cheddar as it was all I had and that also worked no problem. I have seen similar recipes that use a mixture of cottage and hard cheeses too so you could adapt away with this recipe I think.

      Excellent, very tasty....I've posted a picture, but they don't look as elegant as Sackville's. I had a little trouble shaping them, but i wonder if that's because I mixed them by hand. A processor does a much better job.
