“I buy sausage mince (ground sausage meat)for these although when posted it comes up as sausage but it definitely isn't a prepared sausage there is just the ground meat no casing when bought.I usually cook these in the oven. I buy Masterfoods mixed herbs (premixed)and they contain dried thyme, rosemary, marjoram, basil, oregano and sage.”
