Caerphilly, in my opinion is not a very strong cheese, so to be honest I couldn’t really taste it, next time I may use something stronger, perhaps feta cheese..
I’ve been meaning to make this since I got the recipe book for Christmas last year, better late than never I suppose.
Seeing as I had some cauliflower bake left over I decided to make some vegetable patties while I was at it, I added some prosciutto to the finished dinner but without, it would make a decent side dish to something meaty I reckon..
Finely diced some leeks, chopped some parsley and mixed the lot together with some grated Caerphilly , breadcrumbs, seasoning and mustard..
Then I added an egg yolk, half the white and a little milk to bind it all together, and shaped them into sausages..
The vegetable patties were just veg and cauliflower cheese, a couple of roast potatoes I had left over that I’d frozen, mashed together and shaped..
I rolled the leek sausages in the remaining egg white, coated them in flour, made a bit of a pigs ear of that to be honest..
and put everything in the oven..
I served them on some baked tomato and onions
Topped them off with some crispy prosciutto
and had one of the vegetable patties with it, I saved the other two for the following evenings dinner..
They were very nice, Caerphilly, in my opinion is not a very strong cheese, so to be honest I couldn’t really taste it, next time I may use something stronger, perhaps feta cheese..
