sizzlin' sausages

My husband's special dinner request was for proscuitto-wrapped chicken sausages - which were delish. So now I'm going to share the love - and the recipe...

500g chicken mince
zest and juice of half a lemon
a couple of finely sliced garlic cloves
around a cup of chopped italian parsley
salt and pepper
an egg
1 slice of wholegrain bread, grated

8 - 10 slices proscuitto

Combine all ingredients except prosciutto in a bowl and mix well. Form into sausage shapes and place in a container before refrigerating for around 30 minutes. Take out, roll the sausages completely in a slice of proscuitto {do it on an angle so it's completely enclosed} and then grill them, turning till crispy and browned and firm.


My daughter loved these - even with the strong lemon flavour. She did a MasterChef taste test while eating, and managed to get all the ingredients except egg and breadcrumbs {and who'd taste those?}. Served with rich orange pumpkin mash, crisp sweet potato rounds and lightly steamed spears of broccolini I feel this was the perfect balance of healthy and tasty...

Now, to master that lamb dish they just cooked on MasterChef.


  1. They sound quite fabulous and I think they might just get a run in our house sometime this week - thanks!

  2. They're soooo yummy. I like a lot of lemon though, so you might tone that considering what your family are like. My daughter gobbled them down though and normally she doesn't like too much lemon.


Comments make me SO happy. Thank you for taking the time to share the love x
