Nigella’s Cranberry & Soy Glazed Cocktail Sausages

This is another recipe left over from Christmas. Yep. Sorry about that.

A festive favourite in the M household, I make these every year but it occurred to me that I’ve never actually blogged them so hastily snapped them right before they were demolished in about two minutes.  These sausages are delicious straight from the oven so they never hang around very long.

It’s a lovely simple recipe. Aside from a tiny bit of faffing making the glaze, there’s nothing really to it. I secretly like whipping up a marinade or a glaze anyhow and the majority of the ingredients are store cupboard so you’re likely to have them kicking around. Nigella lists them as a party dish but in all honesty I don’t really see how it would work. These suckers are sticky and icky but to be fair to her she does mention that you’ll probably have to follow people around with a packet of baby-wipes!  Nigella also says that you can use the glaze ingredients as a marinade/cook-in sauce for chicken wings and spare ribs, both of which I think would work amazingly.

The glaze recipe is enough to coat 50 cocktail sausages and of course can be easily halved or doubled as necessary.  Recipe adapted from Nigella Christmas.

Cranberry and Soy Glazed Cocktail Sausages


125ml Thai or Chinese sweet chilli sauce
60ml cranberry sauce (from a jar)
60ml soy sauce
1 x 15ml dark brown sugar
juice of 1 clementine (or satsuma)
juice of 1 lime
50 cocktail sausages


Preheat the oven to 200c/gas mark 6. Pop the cocktail sausages into a foil-lined roasting tin or a disposable foil baking tray if you have one.  (This is quite important, the glaze can make an awful mess).

Mix the chilli sauce, cranberry sauce and soy sauce in a measuring jug and stir in the sugar. Add the clementine and lime juices and mix well.

Pour the glaze over the sausages, ensuring that there are all evenly coated.  Put the tin into the oven for around 35-40 minutes, turning them gently halfway. 

Serve immediately.

See? Quite simple.

Let me know if you try them, and don’t forget the baby-wipes! 

love & kisses
