Faggots or as I know it Savoury Ducks

These are very tasty and a useful addition to the festive table. I first came across this at my cousin's wedding. What's more this is relatively economical to make You can form them into balls - makes approximately 8 but I usually put into a small square cake pan and cook then once cool cut into little squares. Then serve as part of a buffet table, or as a pick and take from the fridge or as part of a lunch box. A little of this goes a long way. Alternatively if you choose to make it in the round balls serve two or three of these with a nice rich onion gravy, some mashed potato and vegetable of vegetables of your choice. It is quite an adaptable recipe.


1 1/2lbs pigs liver
6 oz bacon
2 medium onions
7 oz breadcrumbs
3 oz Shredded Suet (Suet if acquired from the Butchers tends to come whole and you
have to grate it yourself)
2 teaspoons chopped fresh sage
1 teaspoon fresh basil
Salt and pepper

Mince the liver bacon and inions together and mix with the other ingredients

Form into balls by rolling them in a little flour and then packing closely on a baking tin. If using in squares pressing the mixture into a greased baking pan.

Bake in oven temperature 350 degrees F/180 degrees C or Gas mark 4 for approximately 30 minutes.

Serve with a rich gravy I tend to use onion. Or serve as squares once cooled as pick and come again from the fridge or for buffet table extra.
