  • 1/2 lb lentils soaked overnight
  • Salt
  • Pork or beef dripping for frying
  • 1 medium-sized onion peeled and finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves crushed with
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 4 oz unsmoked streaky bacon rinds removed and chopped
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 lb German bratwiirst or Frankfurters


  • Drain the lentils and rinse under cold running water. Put in a saucepan with a little salt, cover with water and bring to the boil. Simmer for 30 minutes or until the lentils are soft.
  • Meanwhile, melt a knob of dripping in a frying pan. Add the onion, garlic and bacon and fry until the onion is golden and the bacon is crisp.
  • Add to the lentils and season with plenty of black pepper. Continue cooking until the liquid reduces in the pan and the lentils are almost a puree.
  • If using bratwiirst melt another knob of dripping in the pan. Fry these until golden-brown and cooked through. Frankfurters should be put in a pan of cold water, brought to the boil, taken off the heat and left to warm through for 5 minutes.
  • Taste the lentil mixture for seasoning and transfer to a hot serving platter. Arrange the sausages over the lentils and serve immediately.
