I went to a cocktail party at a friend’s house and decided it was the perfect opportunity to try out this recipe for Cosmo cocktail sausages from Nigella Lawson’s website, but of course in a vegetarian version.
I picked up these Redwood vegetarian pork cocktail sausages from my local health food store.
They cost £2.49 for 300g and the packet contained 31 mini sausages. I chose this brand because they looked closer to the meat version; there were also some frozen cocktail sausages available in the shop that looked like they had the texture of hot dog sausages. (I’ll try those ones out another time.)
I tried a cocktail sausage straight from the packet. They would be nice and convenient for a picnic, but I much preferred them cooked as described below.
Cosmopolitan Cocktail Sausages (adapted from Nigella Lawson’s recipe on her wesbite) Makes 30
One packet of Redwood vegetarian cocktail sausages
25g cranberry sauce
25g fine cut orange marmalade
1 tbsp lime juice ( I used bottled lime juice)
- Preheat oven to 200°C.
- Whisk together the cranberry sauce, orange marmalade and lime juice.
- The sauce is very sticky so I recommend you line a baking tray with kitchen foil to save you from scrubbing a pan clean.
- Tip the sausages into the prepared tray and coat them well with the sauce.
- Cook for around 30 mins.
- Leave to cool slightly before serving.
