Introduction

If you want to have something hot to pass around on a tray, then cocktail sausages are what you're after. There's nothing fiddly to make, nothing to go right or wrong, and everyone loves them. These are not just any cocktail sausages: the sesame oil, honey and soy give them a sweet-savoury stickiness that is pretty well impossible to resist.

Ingredients

Makes: 75 cocktail sausages

Metric Cups
  • 1 kilogram cocktail sausages
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 125 millilitres honey
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2¼ pounds skinny breakfast sausages
  • 2 tablespoons asian sesame oil
  • ½ cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 220°C/gas mark 7/425ºF.
  2. Separate the sausages, if they are linked, and arrange in a large, shallow-sided roasting tin.
  3. Whisk together the oil, honey and soy sauce and pour over the sausages, then use your hands - or a couple of spatulas - to move everything about in the pan so that all the sausages are slicked.
  4. Roast for 25-30 minutes; give them a shuffle about halfway through cooking if you happen to be near the oven.

  • These sausages always go down a treat in my family - I have made them many times, with many comments after the recipe. I like to add some sesame seeds to the mixture as well. Enjoy!!

  • I just made these for my kids, my eldest who is 4 is autistic and bit of a nightmare with food. I used pork chipolatas and then popped them on pop sticks.. The best and most fun dinner we have had in ages!

  • I have made these on many occasions now and they always get gobbled up straight away, especially by teenagers and young adults. I cut chipolatas in half before cooking so I end up with little bite size pieces which are great for parties. These cocktail sausages are a very easy party food if you're not into spending a lot of time in the kitchen.

  • Made these for my Fireworks Party this year. Let's just say they were gone in a bang! Everybody asked for the recipe! All the kids were asking their Mums for them for tea the next night! DELICIOUS!

  • Re Cocktail Sausages which were delicious using slightly spicy sausages which compliment the honey mixture, advise to remove sausages onto plate as soon as they come out of oven otherwise they stick and glue together and keep cooking too long. Temperature was better at 180 for 25 mins. Regards. Alison Bishop
