sausages roasted with honey and mustard dressing

honey mustard sausages
Cocktail sausages baked with a honey and mustard dressing has a lovely sticky, tangy flavour. Another good nibble for a drinks party, although I sometimes take leftovers into work, with a light cucumber salad. I am usually forced to sharpen my elbows to fend off marauding colleagues!

This will taste better according to the quality of sausages you use. However, I recently (in a last minute rush) had to settle for a bag of frozen chipolatas from my local supermarket. They weren't perfect, but the dressing definitely hid any deficiencies in the sausages themselves!

Serves 4
Skill level: Easy

ingredients:
30 cocktail sausages
3 tbsp runny honey
3-4 tbsp wholegrain mustard

directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 200C / Gas Mark 6.
  2. Combine the honey and mustard in a mixing bowl.
  3. Place the sausages in a roasting dish and pour over the honey mustard dressing, ensuring that the sausages are well coated.
  4. Bake in the oven for 20 to 25 minutes. (It may need another 5 minutes to get all the sausages browned).
  5. Turn the sausages occasionally to ensure that they are nicely browned.
  6. Serve with a ketchup dip or green salad.

tip:

  • Replace the honey and mustard with 3 to 4 tablespoons of a good quality jam, chutney or marmalade, together with 1 tablespoon of Chinese Five Spice powder, 1 to 2 cloves of finely chopped garlic and a splash of wine vinegar as well as 2 tablespoons of soy sauce.

It looks very tasty. Are they 'real' coctail sausages (from a tin) or coctail sausages from the butcher's ??

Well these were frozen sausages - not very good quality. I think next time I would use good sausages and then perhaps chop them into small pieces!

But fab party food - I think it takes everyone back to their childhoods.

I buy these good quality long thin sausages from Lidl( yes Lidl? I hear you say )and do exactly that - cut them into bite size pieces. I feel a party coming on, if only....The boys got to work!!!!!
