After the success of last week’s bonfire hampers – featuring a packet of Sam Perks Beef Sausages – we’ve had a number of requests for recipe ideas for how to make the best of our lovely beefy bangers. A favourite in our house is beef sausage pie topped with a creamy horseradish mash or the following goulash recipe; really easy to make and perfect comfort food on a cold winters evening. Beef sausages are just £3.40 a pack including local delivery and chances are you’ll have most of the other ingredients already to hand. We’d love to hear your feedback if you try this out or any of your other favourite beef sausage recipes.
