I narrowly escaped these ghastly things being served up on my Sunday morning cooked breakfast earlier today. They were previously nestling amongst the glacial ice in our freezer and Mrs Mac had hooked them out to use them up today in a sausage toad, if anything just to free up some much needed freezer space.

Her plan was to serve two of these reprehensible things up on my cooked breakfast, but after strong representations my Mrs saw sense and cooked a couple of Porky Whites for me instead.

I just don't get the overenthusiastic Oirish affinity to these sausages. My ex MIL swore by these but then again she had a perennial problem with her bowels and uncontrollable wind which knew no social etiquette.

If you shaved the beardy Fenian Gerry Adams from head to toe, his wrinkled, pink body would truly resemble one of these Richmond sausages. Why on earth anyone would purchase these in preference to a proper, fat, meaty banger, f*ck knows.

Much sympathy Mac, some women do not know one sausage from another. Richmond are 40% pork and deeply unsatisfying, whereas one of my favourites, Ian Rankin, are 85% pork and delicious ,very tasty cold too.
My wife likes those and there's a women who knows a good banger when she sees one :wink:

I occasionally make my own sausages but mostly buy them from our excellent local butcher. Too many mass-produced sausages appear to consist of bones brains and balls; I also dislike their homogenised texture.

All of this is a symptom of the decline in production standards of so many foods today.

One final thought; my offspring are currently watching 'Peppa Pig', a deserving candidate for being turned into sausages, pork pies and a decent leg of ham herself.

Richmond sausages are great on a barbecue.

They work better and faster than any firelighter.

I reckon Richmond sausages are made of dead diddicoy cocks.

Sausages - little bags of mystery. :?:

Not fit for human consumption. :(

I don't see how liking bangers with more meat in them is snobbish Chips! If a banger has 45% meat it's not unreasonable to enquire about the 55%.

Which calls to mind a joke that I heard recently:-

My wife doesn't think much of my cooking but she does like my sausage in cider.

Went to Hull to watch a pathetic Watford lose against 10 men.
Anywho. Traveled up on Friday as my sister lives near Scarborough.
We went into Scarborough on Saturday morning for brunch and the
Sausage black pudding and bacon bagette was 10/10. Was it a Richmond sausage?
I'm not so sure....
