It’s British Sausage Week so I thought I’d share with you one of my favourite sausage recipes… Sausage and mushrooms in mustard and cider. It’s simple to make and it tastes delicious served with creamy mashed potato and peas (although I often eat it just by itself which is yummy too).

This dish is suitable for freezing so you can cook it in advance and then it’s there ready for a quick mid-week dinner.

  1. This looks so scrumptious. I bought some cider to try making cider doughnuts then couldn’t find a doughnut pan. Looks like I have found a use for that cider!

    • I’ve not tried cider doughnuts before, but I like the sound of them. Glad my recipe is a suitable substitute.

  2. Mmm this sounds like comfort food perfection. Thanks for linking to #CookBlogShare

  3. It looks really yummy; my husband would love it! I have to try making it for us; all I need is the cider. I have all the other ingredients at home.
