You will love this easy sausage (opens in new tab) recipe, it’s simple and effective! Our bonfire (opens in new tab) bangers are great with a generous dollop of Pear, Apple and Onion Chutney and Dijon mustard. In the summer you could cook the sausages on the BBQ but in colder weather, when you may prefer not to cook outside, cook the sausages in this easy sausage recipe using a griddle pan on the hob. We have used lovely chipolata sausages for this easy sausage recipe, but you could pick a sausage of your choice or even spice up this easy sausage recipe with chorizo. This recipe is also incredibly speedy to make and will certainly please a crowd on a chilly autumnal eve around a bonfire. For a veggie alternative you could use meat-free sausages, we love Linda McCartney vegetarian sausages.
Pear chutney (opens in new tab) is super easy to make, you wont be buying pear chutney from the supermarket any more! Plus we bet pear chutney that is homemade tastes so much better than shop bought, you can even moderate the sweetness to you’re taste. If you have a pear tree in your garden pear chutney is a great way to preserve the excess fruit, or if you spot those pears going soft in the back of the larder then chop ‘em up and make them into this yummy pear chutney. You could even swap out the pears to make an entirely apple chutney if you’re not a pear fan. This chutney is the perfect accompaniment to a sausage bap.
