ale and increase the

quantity of stock to

850ml (11/2pint).

Serve any leftover

faggots cold as a

sandwich filling or

with crusty bread

and a green salad

Thank you very much Egluntine. It must have taken you ages to type it out :shock: I think the preparation time of 15 mins is a bit optimistic, but they sound delish and I will try them over the weekend. Cinnamon the link to Dan's faggots doesn't seem to work any more :(




I cheated.....I copied and pasted. :lol: :lol:


I think it will be the same recipe as Daniels....although Cinnamons link doesn't seem to work...but it is from the "Tuck In" series.


I made them once at Egluntine Towers. They went down well as I recall. :lol:
