A tasty sausage recipe

Are you looking for a cheap, delicious, simple, healthy sausage recipe that is great for the whole family to enjoy? I have been making this dish for many years for my growing family. I guess you would call it an english recipe, with an eastern twist! When I have needed to feed the children before the adults, it has been served without the marinade, with baked beans and chips or baked potatoes. Then the adults portion is served later after having marinated the sausage balls and then enjoyed with a salad. This sausage recipe makes boring sausages a thing of the past and creates an impressive dish out of interesting, yet basic ingredients that is sure to impress your guests. Serve it with your favourite summertime salad for a scrumptious grilled meal that will ensure a great time together.

      These sausage balls sound absolutely delicious to me. I love sausage but I usually just fry it plain. I will have to give this recipe a shot.
