  • Heat the oil in a large sauté pan and fry the sausages for 8-10 mins, turning frequently until browned all over. Remove from the pan, cut in half and set aside.

  • Remove the lid and continue to cook for a further 5-10 mins.
  • Season to taste, and scatter with parsley or chives. Serve with crusty bread.
