Pork Essentials: British Sausages

Andy Anderson !


I love things like Bangers & Mash, or Toad in a Hole; however, it is difficult to get “proper” British sausages.

I got this spice recipe from a fellow chef in London last year. She claimed that that it is the standard recipe used for making British beef sausages, or “bangers.”

I switched the beef out for pork, and made them into patties. My holiday houseguests love them, and always ask if I will be serving them for breakfast.

So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.

How to Make Pork Essentials: British Sausages


  2. Gather your Ingredients (mise en place).
  4. Add all the seasoning ingredients into a small bowl.
  5. Thoroughly mix, and place into a glass container with a tight-fitting lid.
  7. Grind the pork and the fat together using the large holes of your meat grinder.
  8. Mix in the bread crumbs, chicken stock, and 2 1/2 teaspoons of the reserved sausage seasoning.
  9. Place in the fridge, and allow the mixture to rest for 30 minutes.
  10. Chef’s Note: This will give the mixture time to absorb the chicken stock.
  11. If you have a casing stuffer, then use this mixture to make your own sausages. If you do not have a casing stuffer (I thought everyone had one of these), then form them into patties.
  12. Chef’s Tip: These will freeze quite well.
  14. These make a great breakfast sausage. Serve them with a full English breakfast, or something a bit more conservative. Enjoy.
  15. Keep the faith, and keep cooking.
