  • “This was easy to make and good although next time I make it I will serve it with something sweet like fruit. I really like the way it looked.”

  • “Easy and so tasty.Try it with a basic onion sauce. delicious, a real tummy filler. The kids loved it.”

  • “I did the British thing and poured some Bisto gravy over the cooked sausages. This was a hit at the Sunday breakfast table.”

  • “I am sorry to to hear that this Main course meal is described as a breakfast meal,It is still a great recipe,but should be served up with creamy mash potatoes and lashings of gravy for DINNER/LUNCH..”

  • “This is a great, easy recipe for a great dish. Not quite sure who said it was a British breakfast dish though, I’ve never heard of that before! This a a lunch/dinner dish through and through!”

  • “made today as I couldn’t put my hand on my usual TOTH recipe. this works well. I added an extra egg as mine were on the small size and omitted the butter – only because enough oil came out of the sausages. made the batter in the blender which is by far the easiest way to do it. we served with mushy peas (another ‘british’ oddity) and onion gravy.have to clarify though that no brit would ever eat this for b’fast – it is a savory dish always served for lunch or dinner.great recipe and good value for money too.. would say use good quality sausages though as they definitely are the star ingredient in this. have added onion (sauted in butter) to the batter before too which is very nice. thank you.”

  • “can’t go wrong with this recipe for a delicious, filling family meal. Have made this dozens of times and its always so quick and tasty. Our favourite variation is to use some good quality chicken sausages and top with chicken gravy. Yum!!”
