Cheesy Veggie Sausages

These aren’t going to win any prizes for being healthy, but sometimes you just want some comfort based stodge. Well I do at any rate..! I based these on Simon Rimmer’s Lancashire Cheese Sausages, but seriously, who would really use 600g of cheese in one recipe?!? That’s a ridiculous amount. Not to mention expensive. So I stripped it back and made a few other substitutions according to what was in my pantry. The results were so yummy we didn’t end up with any leftovers. The texture of the sausage was great too, it didn’t fall apart when deep fried and had a nice consistency.

For 12 sausages you will need:

  • 200g fresh breadcrumbs
  • 300g grated cheese – I used a combo of Wensleydale, Cheddar and Emmental
  • 2 onions, blitzed to a pulp
  • 2 tbsp dried mixed herbs
  • 1 tsp veggie stock powder
  • salt and pepper (be generous with these)
  • 2 eggs
  • oil for deep frying
  1. Mix together everything apart from the oil until well combined.
  2. Squidge into 12 sausages or patties. Cover and leave to chill in the fridge for at least 2 hours.
  3. Heat the oil and fry the sausages for 5-6 mins until golden brown. You might need to do this in batches depending on the size of your pan.
