  • 225 grams (1/2 lb) flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoonful salad oil
  • water
  • 450 grams (1 lb) sausage meat

How to Make Wiltshire Porkies

  1. Mix flour and salt in a basin, add the yolk of 1 egg and 1 tablespoon of salad oil.
  2. Mix in enough water to form a smooth batter that will just coat the back of a spoon.
  3. Beat well and let it stand for 1/2 hour.
  4. Douse hands and board with flour to prevent sticking, form the sausage meat into small, neat sausage shaped rolls.
  5. Whisk the white of the egg stiffly and stir it into the batter.
  6. Coat each sausage with batter and deep fry until golden brown.

Serving Suggestions

Serve on a warm plate with battered apple rings. Garnish with parsley.
