20% Off Sausages Celebrating UK Sausage Week

Here at Cheerbrook we’re celebrating UK Sausage week, 29th October – 4th November, by offering 20% off all our free-range pork sausages from our butchery counter.

Sausages are a comfort food classic, perfect for cosy autumn nights, for a bonfire supper or a hearty family meal. All of our sausages at Cheerbrook are handmade by our team of butchers, with free-range pork from Packington Farms of Burton-upon-Trent, Staffordshire, natural casings & fresh ingredients.

We love experimenting with different flavours & developing tasty new varieties, sausages are so versatile; we’ve put together three inspiring recipe ideas with our fabulous sausages whether you’re rustling up a bonfire night supper, throwing a fireworks party or packing a snack for an Autumn walk:

Sausage, pumpkin & sage casserole

Serves 4

Ingredients

Knob of butter

6 Cheerbrook pork or roast onion & sage sausages

1 Onion, peeled & sliced

2 Cloves of garlic, sliced

1 tbsp Chopped sage

1 Small pumpkin or butternut squash, peeled & cubed

1tbsp White wine vinegar

1tsp Caster sugar

200g Chopped tomatoes

400g Cannellini beans

500ml Chicken stock

Method

Pre-heat the oven to 180oc.

Heat the butter in a large ovenproof casserole pan, fry the sausages for 5 minutes until browned.

Add the onions & fry for a further 3 minutes to soften, then add the garlic & sage for a further 3 minutes.

Add the pumpkin/squash, followed by the white wine vinegar & continue to cook until most of the liquid has evaporated.

Add the sugar, tomatoes, cannellini beans & stock, seasoning with salt & pepper to taste. Bring to the boil, then pop in the oven for an hour until the pumpkin is tender.

Serve with fresh, crusty bread to mop up the flavoursome sauce.

 

Smoky sausage pasta

A simple pasta dish is sure to please young & old at a bonfire bash; whether you choose our classic free-range pork sausages or the Tolouse, with bacon, red wine & garlic mushroom. A large crock pot for diners to help themselves with a basket of hot, crispy ciabatta is a fuss free way to feed a hungry crowd.

Olive oil

8 Cheerbrook pork or Tolouse sausages, skins removed

2 Cloves of garlic, sliced

1 tsp Fennel seeds

2tsp Smoked paprika

2 x 400g cartons of passata

In the meanwhile, cook your pasta & toss in the sauce before serving with shavings of parmesan & crusty ciabatta.

 

 

Mustard & maple sausage rolls

Get the children involved with making these simple sausage rolls this half term, bake & take as an Autumn picnic on a walk in the Cheshire countryside.
