Scottish Sliced Square Sausage
« on: May 07, 2014, 05:44:21 am »
Ingredients

450g Good quality Beef Mince
450g Pork Mince
170g Home made Breadcrumbs
1 Egg (beaten)
1 and 1/2 tsp ground coriander seeds
1 and 1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp nutmeg
1tsp white pepper
A good grinding of black peppercorns about 6-8 turns.

Thoroughly mix everything together with your hands  until completely combined. I am sure you could use TMX but I like to massage everything through for about 5 minutes.
Mold it into an oblong loaf tin lined with glad wrap pressing down firmly until packed in. Cover with glad wrap and put in freezer  for about 30-45 mins until very firm but not frozen solid.
Remove carefully from pan and cut into slices as per photo. I should have given this batch another 15-30 minutes in freezer as still not as firm as I would like.
Wrap individually in glad wrap and freeze. Best cooked in fry pan in a little oil until brown and a little bit crusty. I cook mine just before completely defrosted so they hold their shape.

Serve with bacon, eggs,  fried potato scones ( tattie scones) , mushrooms and tomato for a traditional Scottish weekend breakfast. Black pudding also if you like it.  ;D

My recipe is in lbs and oz and for double this quantity.

This is a wonderful idea. I've never heard of anything like it. Thanks MF. They look delicious.

We grew up with them for breakfast on the weekend and sometimes just on a buttered roll with HP brown sauce or tomato sauce.
My kids love them and always raid my freezer looking for them  ;D

Looks good - nice alternative to store bought ones which I find too fatty

Thanks Norma, very different to anything I have had also. Like a meatloaf sliced before cooked.  Good to have in freezer.

Neat MF. This is a much better alternative to the sausages that the males of this house love so much :-)) Thank you.

Made these today, and another thank you MF.  I had to fiddle with the ingredients a bit as trying to use what I have got.
I cooked a little patties to taste for balance of spices.  Very good.   Thanks again.
