Cocktail Sausages

If you want to have something hot to pass around on a tray, then cocktail sausages are what you're after. There's nothing fiddly to make[, nothing to go right or wrong, and everyone loves them. These are not just any cocktail sausages: the sesame oil, honey and soy give them a sweet-savoury stickiness that is pretty well impossible to resist.]

Total Time:
40 min
10 min
30 min

75 cocktail sausages

  • 2 1/4 pounds (75 in number) cocktail sausages
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • Preheat the oven to 200C/400 degrees F.

  • Separate the sausages if they are linked and arrange them in a large, shallow-sided roasting tin.

  • Whisk together the oil, honey and soy sauce and pour over the sausages, then use your hands, or a couple of spatulas, to move everything about in the pan so that all the sausages are slicked.

  • Roast for 25 to 30 minutes; give them a shuffle about halfway through cooking if you happen to be near the oven.

So easy and so delicious! I had about ten women over for a holiday lunch and served these as an appetizer - then I spent the next week sending out the recipe. Seriously, three ingredients, no hard work whatsoever, and these were the kit of the day. I didn't have sesame oil, so I didn't use it and they still were so tasty. I could eat a million of them! I have made them twice more since and they really are easy-peasy and absolutely delish. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe is fine, but Nigella's sausages with mustard/ginger sauce is much better. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Ho Hum. The sausages shrivelled and did not convey the flavor of the sauce at all...still tasted like smokey links. I would, however, use the sauce again with chicken wings instead of the sausages. I've used a similar recipe with the wings and they bake in a 350 oven for about 45 minutes. Those have received rave reviews at parties we've given and have been a much requested bring along at parties we've attended. A much better use of ingredients! item not reviewed by moderator and published
what kind of sausage did you use? baby hot dogs or something better? item not reviewed by moderator and published
Just because a recipe does not have a lot of ingredients and is easy to make should not lower it's quality rating. This recipe has gone over extremely well at several gatherings that I have done over the past three years. The adults loved the sausages and the kids loved them. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I recently tried this recipe for the first time and it was definitely a crowd pleaser at a work pary of my husband's. I love NIgella's take on a classic appetizer. Very flavorful and much better than the usual BBQ sauced crock-pot variety. Trust me on this will not be disappointed :) item not reviewed by moderator and published
