Alfresco cooking is the most enjoyable kind – especially when you get the barbie out! And it doesn’t get much better than this twist on the classic sausage sarnie


Sainsbury's Be Good To Yourself British Cumberland Pork Sausages

230 g, cooked as per pack

Ciabatta Bread

225 g, 25g for crumbs

Fennel Seeds

¼ teaspoons, level

Chilli flakes

1 pinch

Oregano, fresh

½ teaspoons, chopped, finely chopped


½ zest(s) of 1

Light Mozzarella

60 g, chopped

Artichoke hearts, cooked

2 individual, drained well and chopped

Cherry Tomatoes

Lemon Juice, Fresh

45 ml

Basil, fresh

  1. Squeeze the sausagemeat out of the sausages into a bowl. Make breadcrumbs from the 25g ciabatta and add it to the bowl with the fennel seeds, chilli flakes, oregano and lemon zest. Season with a little black pepper and mash together with a fork to blend, then shape into 4 short, fat sausages, cover and chill until needed.
  2. Mix the salad ingredients together and season to taste. Halve the 4 ciabatta pieces. Cook your sausages over hot coals for around 10 minutes, turning carefully, until done. Toast the ciabatta lightly on the barbecue. Top 4 pieces of ciabatta with the salad, add a halved sausage to each then top with the remaining ciabatta.
