This month sees three big occasions come together – Bonfire Night (November 5), British Sausage Week (November 5th-11th 2012) and the 250th Anniversary of the Sandwich – and to mark this milestone the British Sandwich Association has come up with a real banger – the Whizz Bang hot sausage and mustard sarnie.
Eaten hot or cold, this simple Sausage Sandwich is a real winner comprising sausage (you can choose from a variety of flavours these days) with lashings of English mustard and onions (optional) in a roll.
Sausages make great sandwich fillers, particularly with stuffing and onion or with egg. Indeed, sausage and egg sandwiches rank highly among the most popular sandwich fillings in the commercial sandwich world.
