"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."

"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."
"These are wonderful for times when you want to add a lot of protein without adding something with a strong flavor. My kids really liked them! There's a lot of potential for using different flavors or dipping sauces, too. Curry, herb, barbecue...."
"i have not made this yet but was impressed by your photo's...and will make this recipe in the near future. thank you for the post and pict's."
"I had to use cheddar instead of the listed cheeses, but was very happy with the results. I ended up using dry mustard and liked the tiny bite it provided. Thank you for sharing this recipe! "
"This is a super vegetarian meal. I don't have a food processor, but it's not a difficult recipe to assemble, and the resulting "sausages" are delicious! "
"These were delicious and really easy to make. Veggie daughter, meat eating DH & self really enjoyed them. Will def make again."
"Your pictures are GREAT! I can't wait to try this recipe. This is such a great tool for new cooks. Will rate as soon as I make them...AND...if looks have anything to do with it, it surely will be a 5 star!"
