How to Make Glamorgan Sausages

Glamorgan sausages are vegetarian. They have been made for a long time and are enjoyed as a substantial meal in their own right even by those who enjoy the meatier variety.


To get the desired consistency, it is best to have a food processor for combining the ingredients.

  • 200g white bread crumbs, freshly made (they should be soft crumbs, not hard, dried ones)
  • 1 onion, grated very finely
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tbs parsley, chopped finely
  • 1 tsp thyme leaves, fresh if possible
  • 2 eggs
  • Plain/all-purpose flour for coating
