On Saturday I took some sausages out of the freezer as it looked like it was going to be a nice day to be in the garden, and possibly have a barbecue. Unfortunately it didn't turn out to be as nice as I thought so decided on good old sausage and mash instead, but with a twist.
I had some Schwarts Flavour Shots in the pantry (yes I have a pantry now after wanting one for almost a decade!) and chose to use the Spanish Paella flavour. Each of the flavour shots contain a recipe on the packaging, but I'm not one to follow recipes, and like to try something a little bit different.
The flavour shots are a combination of spices and oil to make your chosen dish taste authentic. I thought that the smoked paprika and garlic flavours would be perfect with the sausages, onion and peppers that I had.
You could leave the sausages whole, but I like to cut them up to make them go a bit further.
