To cook sausage:

  • First, thaw the sausages. After they're thawed, you can poke a few holes into the casing with a fork - but not too many or you will let all the flavor & juices out as they cook!
  • Put your pan or griddle on a medium heat, and add a small amount of oil
  • Add the sausages to the pan cook for 10-12 minutes, turning often, until they are browned all around.
