Irish Sausages (Bangers)
- Ready In:
- Mince the meat and fat twice, then mix very well and season. (Fry a teaspoon or so each time to check the flavor until you get it the way you like it.)
- Add the herbs and breadcrumbs and any spices used.
- Fill skins as usual. You could probably also make into patties and pan fry.
This is an excellent recipe, almost authentic! Bread crumbs (or rusk) are definitely not optional if you want the sausage to have the right flavor and texture. The crumbs should be about 8-10% by weight of the meat and then moistened with water before adding. The crumbs are not added as a "filler" but to absorb and maintain moisture and fat. This is not health food!
RECIPE SUBMITTED BY
I live in a beautiful seaside town in Massachusetts with my husband, 2 daughters and 2 cats. When not experimenting in the kitchen, I'm writing steampunk romance (Not sure what that is? Check out my website!). Recently agented, I hope to see my books in print soon. Can't wait! <img src="http://www.recipezaar.com/members/home/454328/zaar%20photo.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> Amelia (2 y.o. here) enjoying a cider donut after apple picking. <img src="http://www.recipezaar.com/members/home/454328/zaar%202.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> Maeve (4 y. o. here) I love cooking and can't resist trying to figure out what ingredients went into a good meal. I'm not really one for measuring, and usually just make things up as I go along. My brain tends to shut down at the sight of too many ingredients in a recipe (must be A.D.D. or something) so that's something I'm trying to work on. Most of my recipes are quick and easy to make, since I'm usually trying to get dinner out in a hurry. My family is Greek and my husband is Irish, but also lived in Spain for several years, so my cooking tends to reflect those cultures, but in general we're fairly adventurous. Feel free to zmail me!

Update: Just got a new camera, so hopefully my pictures will improve drastically. I had been using the camera on my cell. Needless to say the pics weren't great. I'll try retaking any that I've already posted. http://www.theanimalrescuesite.com/cgi-bin/WebObjects/CTDSites.woa
