Apparently it’s National Sausage Week in the UK (ikr?) therefore I made a sausage recipe. Whether Pork, Beef or even Turkey; sausages are a great, cheap, student essential. This recipe combines that with a cheese roux similar to a cauliflower bake Sorted made a long time ago: the twist being the breadcrumb bake on top.


Perfect for when you're on your own for dinner and just want cheesy goodness in your tummy


Sliced cauliflower with truffle oil and garlic White truffle oil is quite expensive but a little goes a long way with it, it can be found in most Italian food shops.


Left over broccoli and cheese sauce w/ some oven dried tomatoes (which u can't see but it's there). Turned into a nice Sunday lunch.


Was given a bag of broccoli (FOR FREE! Whoo-yay!) grown by my wee lil students, so naturally thought broccoli and cheese. Nom nom nom :3
