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.

No Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie

This No-Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie is going to be my go to dessert this summer. A zingy lime cream encased in a sweet biscuit crumb - much like a no bake cheesecake...but better! It's seriously yummy and will happily sit in the fridge for a couple of days so there's no need to scoff it all at once if you don't want to 😜. It's quite rich too so the recipe made in a 20cm springform tin will easily feed 8 - 10 people, the perfect size for a family gathering or summer BBQ.

TOP TIPS FOR MAKING NO-BAKE ZINGY LIME CRUMB PIETry using ginger nut biscuits instead of digestives for a more grown up taste.For a 'fancier' dessert, pipe some whipped double cream around the edge of the pie and decorate with slices of lime.I whip the condensed milk, lime juice and double cream with a hand held electric whisk but you can do it by hand if you want to - it will give you a good arm workout!You can make the Zingy Lime Crumb Pie up to 3 days before you need it so it's a great ma…

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.
