I love me some marmalade on toast, so finding out that this week was National Marmalade Week (25 Feburary to 3 March) just gave me excuses I didn’t need to attack the sticky orange stuff!  My favourite by far is Tiptree’s Tawny Thick Cut by Wilkin & Sons, which has a delicious abundance of shreds.  For the record, shredless is an abomination and will never be tolerated under my roof!

But marmalade is not just for toast!  Somewhere, somehow, I found out that marmalade goes insanely well with cocktail sausages… Really!  So in honour of Marmalade week may I present to you my exceedingly moreish Sticky Marmaladey Sausages – they’re great for handing round at parties, and even went down really well cold at an office charity buffet lunch type thing.

The recipe below (if you can call it a recipe!) is for party sized quantities, but it’s totally scalable  if you happen to have cocktail sausages lying around and fancy a cheeky hot snack 🙂

I used to buy cheap and cheerful marmalade for this, but I do think the better the marmalade the better the glaze, so don’t be afraid to use whatever you have on hand for toast.  Your tastebuds will thank you for it!

Cook Time
40 min
You’ll need
  1. 3-4 tablespoons of good marmalade
  2. Approximately 50 uncooked cocktail sausages
  1. Cook!
  2. First things first, set the oven to 200c.
  3. While the oven is warming up, melt the marmalade in a saucepan and then pour the gooey loveliness over the sausages in the roasting tin and mix until coated.
  4. Place the lot in the pre-warmed oven for 15/20 minutes, and then take the tin out and give the sausages a good shoogle about. Don’t worry if the marmalade looks a little runny, it will eventually thicken back up again.
  5. Put it all back in the oven for another 15/20 minutes, at which point the marmalade should have become a magical sticky delicious glaze all over the sausages. The sausages will be cooked through after 30/40 minutes so you can take them out at this point, but if you like your sausages a little browner then put them back in the oven until they have reached your preferred shade.
  6. Once out, give them a few minutes to cool down, and then tuck right in!
