In some counties, sausages are boiled and served on toast. They should be plunged into boiling water, and simmered for about 10 or 12 minutes.

  1. sausages
  2. a small piece of butter
  3. toast (opt/li>
  • Prick the sausages with a fork (this prevents them from bursting)
  • Put them into a frying-pan with a small piece of butter
  • Keep moving the pan about
  • Turn the sausages 3 or 4 times
  • In from 10 to 12 minutes they will be sufficiently cooked, unless they are very large, when a little more time should be allowed for them
  • Dish them with or without a piece of toast under them, and serve very hot.

  • Note: Sometimes, in close warm weather, sausages very soon turn sour; to prevent this, put them in the oven for a few minutes with a small piece of butter to keep them moist. When wanted for table, they will not require so long frying as uncooked sausages.
