Accessories you need



This is an old recipe that travelled to Australia from Scotland in the early days and is or was very popular fare at picnics. In the original recipe the 'sausage' is tied securely in a floured cloth and boiled for two hours. Thermomix version is much quicker and easier!

In doing the conversion I used the recipe in my 'Simple Cookery' courtesy of Qld Dept of Education from about 1960’s.


Topside or Round steak will work best. Commercially prepared mince could also be used.

    Haven’t had this since my mother made it. Made this today and loved it. So much easier than the way she did it in the cloth. I did put 250g bacon and 1tbs tomato and 1 of Worcestershire sauce.

    Very happy with recipe.

    I made this yesterday to have as cold meat for a group was coming to lunch. I used good quality mince and added a little more bacon than suggested. I also cooked it 15 minutes longer. I used tomato sauce, next time I will try a different sauce. Thanks for sharing this recipe. I will certainly make this again to use in sandwiches.
