I normally avoid extra cooking steps. But poaching sausages before browning gives a much better texture. More juicy and melt-in-the mouth that I make an exception. The other bonus is you can poach in advance and then it only takes a few minutes to brown your bangers when you’re ready to serve.
takes 20 minutes
4 thick sausages or more
1. Cover sausages with water in a medium saucepan. Simmer gently for 15 minutes, drain.
2. Either cool and refrigerate or brown straight away.
3. When you’re ready to serve heat a frying pan or skillet with some oil. Pan fry the cooked sausages until just browned all over. Or BBQ until brown and hot.

Absolutely. Takes about 20 minutes.
