Mrs M. Rae, Aberdeenshire recommends this way of serving sausages.
Take 1lb pork sausages
½ lb tomatoes
¼ lb lean ham
2 onions
Salt and pepper
½ teacup water
1 cube meat extract

Skin the sausages and roll them in flour, chop up onion finely, and cut ham into small pieces. Butter a large casserole, place onions in foot of dish, then ham then sausages and tomato. Sprinkle with a little salt and pepper. Mix the meat extract with the water and pour over the ingredients in casserole. Cook in a moderate oven for 45 minutes.
