British and Irish sausages are among my favourites comfort food and for me have much more use than a simple English breakfast, but I more like my sausages in a bread sandwich ideal for picnic, summer concerts or even to watch Wimbledon. Here 3 British sausages ideas.
Two sausages by serves are the best measures. Two sausages are around 265 kcal.
