Last month the most widely shared things on my Facebook page were a recipe for toad in the hole and a story of woe about a bloke who put popping candy on his todger. One of my readers even wrote to me, confiding that her husband loves a thick sausage. Turns out that you lot love a good snag too!
If I've learned anything about this blogging caper, it's give the people what they want, so I've hunted five snagadelic recipes for sausage lovers!
Lasagna Soup - a farmgirl's dabbles
This recipe is so good, the internet is swimming with imitations. As far as I know, this is the original. I've made it and it falls in the "evil genius" category. Ridiculously delicious!
Italian Sausage Tortellini Soup - Two Peas and their Pod
What do you get when you combine snags, pasta and soup? The liquid equivalent of Baby, it's cold outside! I'm often late to the party, so it should be no surprise that I'm the last person on earth to discover Two Peas and their Pod. They welcomed another pea just last week and he's adorable!
Pork and Fennel Sausages with Fennel Mash - The Moodie Foodie
Jay, the Moodie Foodie herself, is a friend of mine. Her site is full of recipes designed to scratch your itch without expanding your waist line. Trust her to concoct a healthy version of bangers and mash!

Update: At the time of going to print, there were just five snagadelic recipes to share, since then I have become aware of a sixth sausage recipe:
Babymac takes beautiful photos, tells great yarns about her life in the country and gets to say the f-word as much as I would like to (perhaps she's a grown up). Her recipe for sausage pasta has all the kid-pleasing elements (sausages + pasta) with a few parent-pleasers (hidden green stuff) thrown in too. Winner!
