Yes National Sausage Week in England. My family like sausages in Toad in the Hole. Sausage casserole and they also like my bar b q sausages that I do. Sausage rolls in lunch boxes go down very well as well. Might look for something new this week to do with the sausages. Tell me, how do you like to cook and eat your sausages? Many thanks Anne18

I'm actually not a big fan of sausages. I do like 1 brand that my parents bought camping once it was a cheddar inside. I love bbqing mine during the summer months, I like thenm well done with a burnt crisp to it, but the cheese is melted inside.

It is. I would assume you can do it while making homemade sausages as well.

I'm American and it definitely does not sound like sausages are nearly as popular here as they are in England. The only time I will ever eat a sausage is if it is cooked and served with spaghetti and meat balls. Aside from that I know some people who like eating brats at German restaurants. I've never heard of packing them in a lunch box.

I just remembered one other dish that contains sausage that isn't bad. My parents used to make Jambalaya sometimes. Its not bad and it can be easily cooked in a crock pot.

Funnily enough, we had sausages for tea, the Cumberland variety to be precise. I tend to grill them as it's a very efficient infra-red job inside my cooker that rarely burns anything, so long as I have it on the correct temperature in the first place. To be honest, I wasn't keen, even though they were made by Morrison's own butchers in-store and packed up. I guess it's due to not eating any for quite a while. I didn't know about it being National Sausage Week so thanks for enlightening me on it.

I had the food email from ITV which gives you the recipes from Lorriane/This morning etc. It came yesterday so I'm thinking that next week is National Sausage Week, but not sure if they mean this week or next week as I've not seen the cooking slots on those shows this week s been busy. I also do grill my bangers as well.

Oh, I see what you mean. I often find that 'this week and that week' aren't publicised very well. I bet there's a website with them all on there I should think.

Do you fancy finding a website to share with all of us? Would love to know what National Food Days are about. Would be fun to cook for the family that week, would never get stuck for good meal ideas.

Our family really loves a variety of different sausages as well. Of course our favorite is sausage on a pizza. We can't get a pizza without it having sausage on it. We like to eat biscuits with sausage gravy and I also really like to make hot sausage balls with some dip as a meal from time to time (but not all the time). If we are eating smoked sausage, or Kielbasa, we like to eat that with sauerkraut and mashed potatoes on the side. Oh yeah, one of my aunts also makes something called Hankey-Pankey that I really love as well (I need to get her recipe for that).

Oh, I just love sausages any way at all. One way I eat them is in "breakfast casserole" which is how I use left-over biscuits as the fellow I cook for loves biscuits and gravy. So the next day I crumble a day old biscuit into the bottom of a small pie pan and put shredded cheese and chopped sausage on top of the biscuit and over that I pour a mixture of 2 eggs, 1 T oatmeal ground into flour, and 1/2 cups of milk, seasoned with black pepper. Baked until set and golden brown on top, this serves 4. I also like sausage in spaghetti.

We eat sausage with sauerkraut and fried with potatoes mostly, bt I've begun making pasta in a cheese sauce with sausages in it and I really like it that way. I'm not sure we have the same kind of sausage here in the US that you have there, but we eat all kinds in various ways.

Last week I fixed a smoked sausage in the slow cooker with onions and apples and potatoes, that was very good. I am not sure if American breakfast sausage is popular in England, but we make sausage gravy and serve on biscuits, which in the US is a kind of bread, not a sweet. We eat sausage with eggs a lot. I use sausage in some types of meatballs. Yesterday I used cooked ground sausage mixed with cooked brown rice, apples and raising and I stuffed an acorn squash and cooked it. That was very good.

I've done sausage casserole in my slow cooker before. Pork sausages and apples are very good. We in England do eat sausages for breakfast with eggs,bacon,egg and beans and black pudding. The cafe does a good sausage sandwich. I keep meaning ot make your American biscuits, have found quite a few different recipes on how ot make them. Which recipe do you use?

I usually just grill them and have them with eggs for breakfast or I have one later cold or I have a sausage sanger for lunch. My favourites are herb and garlic though honey sausages are pretty good. I usually have them with tomato sauce. I've had curried sausages but not sausage casserole and we have a devilled sausage pre mix too. Toad in the hole is something I have always wanted to try.
