Alternative Faggots

This is a recipe for faggots that doesn't need all the liver, belly, shoulder pork etc. Not to mention the caul to wrap it in. I appreciate this isn't a traditional recipe, but it is a nice alternative when you want something similar without the effort.

  • In a large bowl, mix together the pork, parsley, sage and leek.
  • Season with salt and freshly ground pepper.

  • Heat a little vegetable oil in a heavy-based frying pan.
  • Add the faggots and let them cook without stirring until they develop a crust.
  • Turn once browned on one side. Remove the faggots from the pan and reserve them.
  • Add the onion to the pan and fry for 2-3 minutes. Chuck in the garlic and fry, stirring, for a further 2 minutes.

  • Bring to the boil, then return the faggots to the pan.
  • Cover the pan and cook the faggots for 10 minutes until cooked through.
  • Serve the faggots with smooth mashed potato.

    If you love Faggots like I do then you have to try this recipe. Not authentic as English_Rose points out but so yummy and easy to make. Only thing I did different was bake them in the oven after everything had been assembled. I served them with mash potatoes and petite green peas. Thanks so much for posting English_Rose this is a winner.
