Sausage Crumble

"You can use a variety of different sausage for this, I like to use my butchers best but Italian would be nice or sometimes I use cumberland which is a herby sausage, but I don't think you get that in the USA my kids loved this mind you they still wouldn't eat the veg. The 30g of crisps is one small bag it wouldn't let me put that in for some reason."

  1. could you put this in tablespoons and cups?
  2. This is NOT a recipe for Sausage Crumble. There isn't even an intermediate step for making SC. On top of that fail, the steps are incomplete. I learned the recipe in 1980 in Louisiana. The only permitted addition is spice to your own taste. How this is an EDITOR'S PICK is beyond a mystery.
  3. Why so much sodium in your recipes? Not good for us.
  4. Malcolm love this today for his lunch. You said that any sausages would work, so I used some little boudin noir (black pudding) sausages and some cocktail sausages, we are cleaning out the freezer before travelling back to the UK for 3 weeks! The sausages worked perfectly and the topping was really delicious. I had no sunflower seeds, so I subbed pumpkin seeds and a few sesame seeds, it was great. I made my own bread crumbs from a stale loaf of bread and used low-fat crisps for the topping. This is an easy to make dish and I can see why it would appeal to children! Made for PAC Spring 2010 and a nice little store-cupboard recipe thanks. FT:-)


<p>Hi,&nbsp;&nbsp;I&nbsp; have three grown up kids and&nbsp;7 &nbsp;grand kids&nbsp;1&nbsp;greatgrandchild and an other on the way. I work p/t as a cleaner in a large office, and sometimes I help as tea lady and I do a bit of reception duties not a lot just a bit, I tend to cut people off in error of course.&nbsp;I have a wee dog called Molly, and is&nbsp;so so naughty, but we love her to bits even if she won't do as she is told. She is a cross between a poodle and a jack Russell and is now&nbsp;four years old. I love my garden and growing everything&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;I just have a small plot, so I like things that grow well in pots, and of course cooking. I love all cook books so I cant pick one but I have one that I refer to a lot Delia Smith's complete cookery course, a good all rounder. I have discovered that I am now diabetic and have had to change my eating and cooking habits I now try to go for the healther option rather than all the cream, butter and sugar, and I have lost 32 pounds, and feel so much better. My mum and all her family were diabetic and so far I am the only one of 8 kids to get it, just my luck, but in a way it's a blessing, as I now have a healthy diet not like before stuffing my face with all sorts. my peeves are I don't like cruel or rude&nbsp;people that don't consider other peoples feelings and&nbsp;opinions, manners and a smile don't cost a penny, so why be greedy and not spread a bit of happiness about, I am quite a softy at heart but don't mess with my kids or grand kids I am&nbsp;very protective of them and would do anything for them,&nbsp;&nbsp;as I always tell my grandchildren it's nice to be nice makes you feel good and we all like that, I used to run a bakers shop and the old folks that came in were so lonely sometimes you were the only&nbsp;person that they spoke to in days or weeks so a smile and a friendly wee chat&nbsp;would make there day so if I can make one person smile in a&nbsp;day that would be great &nbsp;and I have brought my kids up to think the same and the grand kids too.I am married to my dear old man for 40 years this may and can't believe where all the years have gone, they do say time passes fast when you are having a good time so I guess I am having a good time DH said I am having a good time when I am telling him what to do, I say&nbsp;I'm just keeping him right&nbsp;so he will be happy well that my story and I am sticking to it. he he he. .&nbsp;<img src= alt= /><img src= alt= /> <br /><img src= alt= /> <br /><img src= alt= /> <br /><img src= alt= /> <br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket />[/ <br /><br /><img src= alt= /> <br /><img src= alt= /> <br /><img src= alt= /><img src= alt= width=300 height=132 /></p>
