Especially good for vegetarian children! Mixed nuts, or your favourite nuts may be used in place of walnuts.
I made this recipe as a change from Quorn sausages with our mashed potato gravy peas etc, but I was not impressed. The preparation was time consuming and fiddly and the result was uninspiring. I used one medium egg which was not enough to bind the mixture- the recipe should state the size required. and the taste of oats was overpowering. I would certainly not recommend this recipe to go with mashed potato as the sausages have no substance to properly chew, with the result it is all rather like babyfood. I am aware that no such recommendation is made, but I thought I would warn other users against it. I won't be making this again, but it might be to someone else's taste and with more egg it might be much more successful. - 11 Sep 2009
well....this recipe took a long time to make and in the end my 3 kids wouldn't even touch it. I tried it and it just tasted like sauteed leek and i only used one. My advice would be to not make this. Sorry - 06 Dec 2004 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I liked this recipe! It was easy to make although I made a few changes. I only used one leek and I had to use 3 eggs to make the ingredients stick together. It was difficult to roll the mix into sausage shapes, so instead I made patties. I would make this recipe again! - 19 Mar 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
