The best bangers and beans ever


  • 6 flavoured meat sausages, i.e. venison, wild boar, pork etc
  • 3 tbsp/45g clear honey
  • 2 tbsp/30g grain mustard
  • 1 tsp chopped fresh thyme
  • olive oil
  • 125g/4oz diced pancetta or streaky bacon
  • paprika
  • ½ red chilli, chopped (optional)
  • 1 large tin of baked beans

Preparation method

  1. Cook the sausages in a frying pan in a little olive oil and colour on all sides. Once cooked, remove from the pan, return the pan up to a high heat and add the honey, cook for about 30 seconds before adding the grain mustard and thyme and then place the sausages back into the pan and coat with the glaze. Remove and set aside.

  2. Meanwhile, cook the diced pancetta or bacon in a little olive oil with a tsp of paprika and chilli if using. Once the bacon is crisp, add the whole tin of baked beans and cook for a few minutes before serving with the glazed sausages and a baked potato (optional).
