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


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.
    This recipe is fine, but Nigella's sausages with mustard/ginger sauce is much better.
    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!
    what kind of sausage did you use? baby hot dogs or something better?
    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.
    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 :)
    Great combination of flavors -- easy and quick.
    Easy and quick. Nothing special.
