Sweet and Sour Sausages


Its a week of use what we have in the freezer and pantry this week. So had a pack of pork sausages and decided to change it up from the usual devilled sausages even though they are an all time fave of mine! Pretty simple recipe really served mine with hokkien noodles just added to hot water for 2 minutes.
