There is nothing better than eating comfort food in the winter months... well I think so anyway! It’s so nice to come in from the cold and darkness outside and sit down with a bowl or hot soup and crusty bread or stew and dumplings! So one meal I have made lately is sausages with smoky bacon and cider, served with creamy mash and it is a lovely comfort meal to have. Although I have only made this twice so far, it really is a favourite. Here is the recipe for this really yummy meal.
To serve 4
8 pork sausages
6 rashers of streaky smoked bacon (chopped)
I onion (halved and sliced)
1 tablespoon plain flour
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
Handful of parsley (optional)
It really is a very simple recipe and is great as you don’t need many ingredients. I don’t drink cider so I am not very familiar with the different types, so I just used Strongbow which tastes really nice but you can use whatever you like... I may try a darker cider another time to see how the taste differs.
