Andrew (12): This smells great.
Maureen: This is really good, but it’s got to have one of the least inspiring names for a dinner. Sausages with mushrooms? While it is accurate, it’s hardly the sort of name that’s going to get you inspired to get the pans out.
Nicholas (8): I like the name I came up with: Sausage meatballs!
Maureen: Yes, that’s a much better name.
Nicholas: I like it, but without the mushrooms.
Maureen: What are you talking about? You haven’t even eaten any mushrooms yet.
Nicholas: When you make this again, you should use the Italian sausages from Drings.
Maureen: I used their Toulouse sausages, which aren’t that different. Good quality sausages are key to this dish, though.
Tim: This is really good with sourdough toast, too. I like piling the mushrooms and sausages on top of it.
Maureen: This is a perfect weeknight meal. It’s easy, it’s really good and it’s quick.
Tim: Finally a winner from The Family Meal!
Maureen: Yes. There’s been some hits, and some misses with this book, but mostly misses. Do you want me to make it again?
Nicholas: Yes, but without the mushrooms.
