Budget friendly crumbed sausage recipe

From the 101 ways with sausages file, I present to you crumbed sausages – a slightly fancier way to serve your kids’ favourite meal.

I know there’s many out there – kids who just love a good sausage – so much so they’d eat them every night. A budget friendly meal, the crunchy exterior is sure to be a new sausage favourite. I have shallow fried these, but there’s no reason they couldn’t be oven baked or even cooked in an airfryer if you have one – though I haven’t tested those methods.


8 good quality beef sausages (or meat of your choice)
3 tbs plain flour
2 eggs
3 pieces of fresh bread whizzed into breadcrumbs
salt and pepper
oil for shallow frying


  • Using three separate bowls, set up a crumbing station. One bowl for flour, seasoned with a pinch of salt and pepper, a second bowl for the eggs, beaten lightly and a third bowl for the breadcrumbs.

  • Pierce each of the sausages several times with a sharp knife.

  • Roll the sausage in flour, followed by egg and finally roll in breadcrumbs to coat. Transfer to a plate and repeat the process for all sausages.

  • Heat a glug of oil in a frying pan and over a medium heat, fry the sausages, carefully turning until golden brown and cooked through.

  • Once cooked, transfer to a plate and let sit on a pad of kitchen paper towel for a minute or two to mop up excess oil. Serve with salad or vegetables and don’t forget the staple condiment, tomato sauce!
