Glamorgan sausages

    15 min

    Instead of meat, Glamorgan sausages are made with cheese, which, as the Welsh name suggests, should be Caerphilly. Celery has been added for lighter results.

    Serves: 4 

    • 2 thin celery sticks, white part only, very finely chopped
    • 175g (6 oz) fresh wholemeal breadcrumbs
    • 115g (4 oz) Caerphilly cheese, finely grated
    • 1 tablespoon chopped parsley
    • black pepper
    • 1 large egg, beaten
    • about 2 tablespoons milk
    • plain flour for shaping
    • olive oil for brushing

    1. For the watercress sauce, bring a saucepan of water to the boil, add the watercress and return to the boil. Drain at once, pressing out excess moisture with the back of a spoon. Chop finely, then put in a bowl. Add the fromage frais and mix well. Add salt and pepper to taste and set aside.
    2. Put the celery, breadcrumbs, cheese and parsley in a bowl, add black pepper and stir to mix. Using a fork, quickly mix in the egg and just enough milk to bind the mixture.
    3. Divide the mixture into eight. Using floured hands, lightly roll each piece into a sausage shape about 10cm (4in) long.
    4. Heat the grill and lightly brush the sausages with oil. Grill the sausages for about 5 minutes until golden, turning them occasionally. Serve with the watercress sauce and a leafy salad.

    Something else. These are great fresh, but don't freeze and reheat very well  -  19 Oct 2010
