Creamy Cider Braised Sausages

Creamy Cider Braised Sausages

Whether sizzling away in a spitting hot pan or served freshly charred from a summer barbeque, sausages are a comforting staple of many homes up and down the country. We certainly love sausages in this house, so when MOR contacted us to see if we’d like to try out their new range of lower fat sausages of course we said yes!

MOR have been carefully crafted to be just as succulent, juicy, and utterly delicious as everyone's favourite pork sausages, while also introducing exciting new flavours that bring something just a little bit different to the dinner table. Each of the four unique MOR recipes blend high-quality British meat with nutritious vegetables, fragrant herbs, and delicate spices, creating lower-fat sausages that taste absolutely fantastic.

With flavours such as Mediterranean Chicken, Moroccan Spiced Pork, Pork & Lentil and Pork, Beetroot &  Bramley Apple, MOR can be served with everything from mashed potato to pasta and rice

In this Creamy Braised Cider Sausage recipe I used the Pork, Beetroot and Bramley Apple Sausages, which are a blend of British pork, beetroot, Bramley apples, spinach, brown rice, caraway seeds, onion, black pepper and basil. As well as being very yummy they are also a great way of sneaking  those extra veggies into the kids too! The creamy cider sauce worked really well with the sausages but if you wanted to lower the fat even more just omit the double cream.

  1. If you can't get hold of MOR sausages (they are launching in Tesco today, 3rd April 2017), then use another good quality pork and apple sausage.
  2. Add some fresh spinach or frozen peas to the cider sauce 10 minutes before serving to up the veggie content.
  3. This recipe is easily doubled and leftovers can be frozen.
  4. Serve with Sweet Potato Mash with extra veggies on the side.

Honey and Peanut Butter Flapjacks

These flapjacks are now my official weekday grab and go breakfast. I make a big batch on Sunday evening and I'm all set for the week. Oddly I don't really like peanut butter but it works well in this recipe. You can always substitute it for an extra 100g of ordinary butter if you wanted. A handful of raisins makes a nice addition too.

Slow Cooker Chilli Con Carne (No Browning Required)

My slow cooker is my best friend on week days, especially when it's a recipe like this Chilli Con Carne that requires NO pre browning of the meat. It takes all of 3 minutes to 'make' before leaving the slow cooker to do all the hard work during the day. Then, when you get in from a long day at work and the kids are starving, all you need to do is cook some rice and grate some cheese! If you have any leftovers you can stir them into cooked pasta the next day along with some creme fraiche and grated cheddar for a super simple chilli pasta bake. Everyone in my house loves this recipe...well apart from the kidney beans which the kids aren't too keen on!

TOP TIPS FOR MAKING SLOW COOKER CHILLI CON CARNEIf your children actually like kidney beans (mine usually pick them out) add another tin for extra fibre.Instead of adding the spices separately you could buy a Chilli Con Carne spice sachet (e.g. Schwartz) and use that instead.If you like a bit of heat add a tsp of dried chi…

My Mum used to make these moreish buttery cookies all the time and they bring back great childhood memories of licking the syrup spoon clean. They take less than 10 minutes to make and 10 minutes in the oven so they are super speedy for busy days...and most importantly the kids love them.

Chocolate Orange Biscuit Cake: An Alternative Christmas Cake

Every year I make a Christmas cake and every year I'm the one that ends up eating the thing. So in a concerted effort to maintain my waistline, this year, instead of a traditional Christmas cake I'll be making an alternative Chocolate Orange Biscuit Cake to enjoy. After all, who can resist the quintessentially festive chocolate orange combo?

The beauty of a biscuit cake is that it can be made 3 or 4 days ahead and left in the fridge until you want to serve it (or a cold garage if the fridge is bursting at the seams!). All you need is a dollop of clotted cream and you're sorted. If this is being made for an entirely adult audience I would use all dark chocolate in the topping.

TIPS FOR MAKING A FESTIVE BISCUIT CAKEAdd some fudge pieces or nuts if that's what your family likesDecorate with festive sprinklesIf you prefer make in a large square baking tin and cut into slices
