This versatile meat is equally at home on the breakfast table as at a fancy dinner.

Homemade Fried Sausage with Bell Peppers, Onions and Tomatoes

It’s also one of the oldest foods around and was first invented by the ancient Sumerians as a way to preserve meat (adding seasonings helped keep it fresh on long journeys).

But it’s the Romans who are responsible for the name, taking it from the Latin word for salted – salsus.

Back then, you’d never have known what you’d get in your sausage.

This time-honored treat has been made with a whole range of different meats, from horse to boar. 

Nowadays you’ll mostly find sausage makers sticking to the tried and tested classics of pork, beef, or poultry. 

And almost every culture has its own version. German bratwurst, Polish Kielbasa, Spanish chorizo, British saveloy – you could travel the world via sausage dinners!

So forget humdrum hot dogs or boring bangers n’ mash, and take your tastebuds on a trip.

These delightful dishes are loaded with rich spices, fragrant herbs, and tasty ingredients.

From soups to pastas, and biscuits to bakes, the sausage is the star here. Pick up a packet today and get cooking!
