From the Queen to the bin man, one thing that unites everyone in Britain is a love for a good honest sausage.
They are a vital ingredient for many of our most important dishes – a fry up, bangers and mash, hot dogs on a barbecue – so it’s crucial we cook them properly.
An award-winning Michelin-starred cook has lifted the lid on exactly how you can cook sausages the ‘right’ way, and shared some common mistakes we all make.
Jeff Baker, a top chef who has cooked for the Queen, has shared five easy steps on exactly how to cook the perfect banger and its amazing how easily it is to get them wrong.
With more than three decades of experience under his belt, the Executive Development Chef at Farminson & Co is worth trusting, the Daily Star reports, and he’s revealed his secrets as well as the common errors of cooking a sausage properly.
Take a look at the pro advice he’s offered below…
1. Remove the sausage from the fridge 20 minutes before cooking
This helps the sausage to cook evenly and prevents the skin from splitting when it is confronted with heat, Jeff explained.
2. Pop your bangers in the pan
Use a heavy based non-stick frying pan, place on a low to medium heat.
3. Add a teaspoon of duck or goose fat to the pan
Then swirl around until the base is fully coated then tip away any excess fat.
