Archive for the ‘Sausages’ Category

I am in yet another recipe swap for the month of August and I had my family over for a BBQ on the weekend. I made several recipes from one of my team mates and they were all really good this was a very different take on your ordinary sausage. On a whole the BBQ was a huge success and all I made from my stash of recipes were the salads and my chicken skewers with a peanut satay sauce which I have already posted if you would like to see this recipe please click here.

I made these sausages which everyone loved and they were so simple and quick to do. The only thing I did different apart from upping the amount of cheese and onion, was I had not read the recipe directions and I had already diced the onion. I realised the onion would not cook this way as you have already par cooked the sausage so it does not need as munch time on the BBQ, I just cooked the onion in a fry pan before stuffing it into the sausage and it worked perfectly. I am actually glad I made the mistake I am not sure how it turns out the right way but I loved the cooked onion flavour that came through, it was like having a bun less hot dog.

6 (70g) Beef sausages
50g Cheddar cheese (I used more)
1/2 Small onion (I used More)


1. Par-boil sausages for around 10 minutes in boiling water, drain and allow to cool just a little.

2. Finely grate cheese and onion together in a small bowl.

3. Cut a slit down the middle of each sausage for around 2/3 of the length that goes half-way through.

4. Press equal amounts of the mixture well down into the sausage.

5. Transfer to a hot BBQ / grill and cook around 10-15 minutes over a fairly moderate heat (without turning for obvious reasons).
