Ginger Party Sausages

While watching the Cooking Channel the other night, we happened to stumble upon Nigella Lawson's show "Nigella's Kitchen." She was hosting a holiday party and made some delectable sausages. She says she never hosts a party without some sort of sausage. We had honestly never thought of serving sausages at a party as an appetizer, and now we are hooked. These sausages are the perfect combination of sweet and savory and they are sure to be a hit at your next gathering.

1/4 cup of orange marmalade
1/4 cup of wholegrain mustard
2 tablespoons of olive oil
1 tablespoon of soy sauce

1 teaspoon of ground ginger
1 garlic clove, finely chopped
1 pack of Little Beef Franks (not smoked)

Kitchen Essentials:
Measuring cups and spoons
Small bowl
Cutting board
Baking dish
Ziploc bag (if storing in the refrigerator overnight)

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Chop the garlic clove.

In a bowl, mix together the orange marmalade, mustard, olive oil, soy sauce, ginger and garlic. Place the sausages in a buttered baking dish in a single layer and pour the mixture over the sausages. Move the sausages around to make sure they are evenly coated. Cook for about 30 minutes until the sausages are fully cooked. Try one before your guests arrive to ensure they are delicious. Try not to eat them all!

Note: If you are making these appetizers the night before a party, place the sausages and the mixture into a Ziploc bag and refrigerate overnight.


  1. This is delicious and addictive I must say. I made a similar dish from Nigella's latest book for thanksgiving. It was delish! :)

  2. I LOVE Nigella...and sausages! Saving because I'm always looking for something quick to take to holiday parties in December...

  3. Yes, my mam's cocktail sausages are the first snack to disappear at any family occasion. The marmalade/soy/ginger combination sounds delicious. Have used honey/mustard but going to give your recipe a try for a change.

  4. Any party we host the cocktail sausages are sure to be on our appetizer table. Now we have a new version to try rather than just simmered in some barbecue sauce.

  5. What a great sausage combo. It sounds wonderful for a party!

  6. Hi Mr. & Mrs.P....
