    Kid Friendly Dinner - Crumbed Sausages with Savoury Sauce

    Back once again, to The Trusty Triple Tested Cookbook.
    It really does have some good basic food, that suits kids.
    These Crumbed Sausages with Savoury Sauce, have been very popular with the Grandkids
    Not the most attractive looking dish, but very tasty
    I went into the Posh Supermarket to buy the sausages, but I think basically the kids just like a good old fashioned Beef sausage, so off to the Supermarket Supermarket, I went.

    You can prepare this earlier on the day, and cook in the oven, just before you need it
    Will take about 10-15 minutes.

    I thought this time I would accompany the sausages with corn fritters
    This gets extra vege into the kids.
    Everyone likes Corn fritters, surely

    I used the base for my fritters in this recipe click here, to get the recipe,
    replacing the seafood and spinach with, frozen corn, red pepper and onion.
    2 sausages per person
    3 tablespoons Flour
    Freshly ground black pepper
    1 egg
    1 tablespoon water
    Breadcrumbs. As much as you need to coat the sausages, this will vary
    Oil for frying,  2-3 tablespoons

    ½ cup Ketchup
    2 tablespoons brown sugar
    1 tablespoon vinegar
    1 tablespoon soya sauce

    Place the sausages into a pot, cover with cold water
    Bring to the boil and simmer for about 2-3 minutes
    Drain, cool and remove skins

    Mix pepper into flour, on a plate
    Beat egg with water in a shallow bowl
    And lay breadcrumbs on a paper towel

    Dip skinned sausages into flour
    Then egg mix
    Finally into breadcrumbs

    Best to let them set, for at least 15 minutes
    Makes a better crust when you cook them

    In a medium hot pan
    Add oil
    Lightly brown the sausages all over
    Place into an oven dish

    You can leave them in the fridge till you need them

    When you are ready to go
    Preheat oven to 190C

    Combine all the Sauce Ingredients
    Pour sauce over the sausages, making sure each has a good coating
    Bake 10-15 minutes till golden

    Serve, as I did with Corn Fritters or
    Mashed potatoes and broccoli go well
    Kids seem to adore them

    We had leftovers
    So the next day, I cooked up some Cous cous
    Fried some chopped onion,
    Diced carrot and diced celery in olive oil
    Quantities up to you
    Cut up the leftover sausages into medium dice
    Threw onto the pan

    Mixed the lot into the hot Cous cous
