When celebrating the failure of Elizabethan terrorist Guy Fawkes to blow up the Houses of Parliament, you need fab food as well as the fireworks. Bonfire night meals need to be hot, simple and easy to prepare. They’ve also got to be a cinch to eat, and keep you warm when you’re craning at the night sky ‘ooohing and ahhhing’.
For us at Lovefood HQ this means only one thing - bangers. Here then, are our top five sausage recipes.
A great all-rounder which can be eaten one-handed with a spoon in the garden. You can use bacon instead of sausage if you prefer, and leave out the cheese or egg if you’re not keen on it – but don’t leave out the chilli!
Gino’s easy to make casserole brings a little Italian flair to fireworks night.
This hearty filling soup is almost as lovely as Rachel herself. Ladle into big mugs and hand round chunks of bread for dipping.
It takes a little effort, but the results speak for themselves. Individual toad in the hole flavoured with mustard, sage and cider, Batter never tasted so good.
Finally, here's a wild card for those that don’t like sausage!
As well as having a great flavour, drumsticks can be eaten with one hand, meaning you can hold a drink in the other. They’re also cheaper than breast meat. The spicing in this recipe should keep out the cold too.
