Oxford sausages

From Cookipedia

A nice traditional homemade sausage that is quite highly flavoured and has the advantage for the home chef that it does not need a skin. I've made mine from minced beef rather than veal.

This recipe makes 18 sausages which will easily serve six people.

From Wikipedia: "Oxford sausages are a distinctive variety of pork and veal sausage commonly associated with, and thought to have been developed in, the English city of Oxford. Traditionally, Oxford sausages are noted for the addition of veal, in contrast to many traditional British sausages which contain only pork, and their high level of spice seasoning. References to the "Oxford" style of sausage date back to at least the early 18th century, but it was more widely popularised owing to inclusion in Mrs Beeton's Book of Household Management, first published in 1861"

Serving suggestions

I'm going to use some of these in our lovely curry sauce with rice and broccoli


Because these are skinless sausages they can easily be made into burgers.

Chef's notes

These cook well in an air fryer - 180° C for anout 15 minutes, resting for 5 minutes after cooking
