About this recipe:My mother always used to tell me, "don't play with your food". Sadly that was the only piece of food advice I chose to ignore. Cooking should be fun and playful hence this delicious muffin recipe. Curiously they are suitable for vegetarians!

Either boil the potatoes or put in microwave until soft. Mash well with a little milk and a hearty pinch of salt to taste. Put to one side.
I find the sausage mix a little coarse for this recipe so I blitz it in a blender first. Mix as per packet instructions. I usually add the mustard powder to boost the taste. Roll out a portion as small as possible to make a tiny sausage. Roll the remainder into 12 tiny sausages. Fry gently in a little oil until nicely coloured.
Sieve the dry ingredients together and then rub in the flour or margarine.
Add the eggs and then 3 tablespoonfuls of mashed potato and the same of the chopped up sausage.
Divide into 12 muffin cases and bake in a moderate oven (180 C / Gas 4) for about 12 to 15 minutes or until golden and firm to the touch. Put aside to cool.
Hands up those who think that only sweet muffins can be decorated. Wrong! When the muffins are cool use a piping bag with a largish star nozzle to pipe mash over the top. Cut each mini-sausage in half and push into the topping.
