The Great British faggot

Faggots are a cheap and delicious dish, especially served with mash and mushy peas. You’ll need a mincer for this recipe and a good butcher.


Preparation method

  1. Bring a large pan of water to the boil and add the diced meat. Return to the boil, then drain the meat and set aside to cool.

  2. Preheat the oven to 150C/300F/Gas 2.

  3. Mince the meat, add it to a bowl and stir in the onion, herbs and garlic until well combined.

  4. Shape the mixture into six balls, lay a small bay leaf on top and wrap in the caul fat.

  5. Sit the faggots in a roasting tray and pour in the stock. Cook the faggots in the oven for one hour.
