I bought a pack of pork mine and a pack of pigs liver and doubled the recipe also used wholemeal bread, only had dired sage so had to guess the amount just kept smelling it does need a fair bit of seasone if you double the ingredients. Turned out lovley made 24 and froze some in the gravy a really nice recipe better than traditional faggots where you need to buy lots of ofal - 22 Sep 2011
