"Delicious family mid-week tea"

As a family we like foods that we can cook and everyone will enjoy - Mr Brain's faggots is one of those meals! In our house we serve them as a mid week roast with roast potatoes, a selection of vegetables and a rich gravy.

Mr Brain's faggots have been delighting families since 1925 when Herbert Hill Brain, a butcher from Bristol began making them, and they have truly stood the test of time since then.

Served with a rich West Country sauce, these meaty faggots are made from pork and maize, amongst other things, and are oven cooked to produce a warming, comforting family meal.

We find these faggots soft and rich with never any gristle. They cook evenly and melt in te mouth. Although there is a good amount of seasoning and spice in the faggots themselves, even my husband who doesn't eat spicy food AT ALL finds them very enjoyable. The sauce is rich and thick with more of a meaty old-fashioned consistency than regular gravy granuals. Both my children also love these, are they are easy to eat with a fork or spoon and there are no nasty lumps to put the young one off!

Mr Brain's faggots come in packs of 2, 4 or 6 to accommodate any size of family. I found a pack of 4 recently at my local Sainsbury's for approx £1.25 per pack of 4.
These take a fair amount of time to cook, but are well worthy the wait!

Summary: Worth the time it takes to find and cook them!
