Chicken and Oatmeal sausages
This is a recipe which is ideal for using up leftover chicken that you have perhaps used the night before (and stored hygienically). The amount of chicken to oatmeal ratio is, within reason, up to you.
Chicken and oatmeal sausages
4 oz oatmeal
salt and pepper
chicken, finely chopped
1 egg (beaten)
3 oz dry breadcrumbs
1 oz butter
1 oz onion (finely chopped)
2 rashers of bacon (finely diced)
1/2 pint water
Melt the butter in a pan and fry the onion and bacon together until the onion is soft. Add the water and bring to the boil, then sprinkle in the oatmeal
Cover and cook for 15-20 minutes. Stir in the seasoning and the chopped chicken. Set this aside to cool
When cold, roll into sausage or patty shapes and dip into the beaten egg. Then roll this is the breadcrumbs and fry until a golden brown, turning regularly to ensure an even colouring
As with all recipes which involve cooking and baking a sensible approach must be taken especially when dealing with warm or hot (temperature) ingredients. If you are unable to take due care, please do not attempt to make any of these recipes. All recipes are tried at your own risk.
