Hi everyone, I've been away from blogging for quite a while but hope to be back to normal now. I opened the cook book at random today and came to this recipe for Sausage Pie. Now I love sausages and I love pies, sounds like a match made in heaven (especially with the wintery weather here on the West Coast of Scotland)
1lb sausages, 1 egg, 1lb mashed potatoes, 2 tablespoons bread crumbs. Put the sausages into a saucepan with cold water and bring them to the boil. Drain, remove the skins and cut the sausages into 4 pieces each. Place them in a greased proof dish and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Have ready some nicely mashed potatoes and spread them over the sausages. Brush them over with beaten egg, sprinkle the breadcrumbs and bake for 20-30 mins in a fairly hot oven. Serve hot. The potatoes may be brushed over with milk instead of egg.
Hmmm, not quite a pie - I always like pastry, but this recipe does sound tasty. We often have sausages with mashed potatoes. I think I might try it but fry the sausages before I skin them and add in some onions to make a sausagey gravy.
Right, I'm off to see if there are any sausages in the freezer, watch this space for the results!
