Welsh Faggots - Ffagodau Cymreig

This recipe has been reproduced with the kind permission of Owen Jones, a fellow Welshman, and more recipes can be found on his website . . .

These liver and onion balls are seasoned with sage and baked in stock in the oven. This is real comfort food and is often served in a beef stock with peas and thick chunks of freshly baked bread and butter. Mmmmm!


1 lb pig's liver
3 oz shredded suet
Salt and pepper
1 teaspoon fresh sage or 1/2 teaspoon dry sage
2 medium onions
4 oz. fresh breadcrumbs
1/2 pint beef stock


  • Set oven to 350°F or Mark 4.
  • Mince the liver and onions together, preferably in a food processor.
  • Put into a bowl and stir in the suet, breadcrumbs, sage and seasoning to taste.
  • Form the mixture into 12 balls with floured hands and place in a well-greased, shallow, ovenproof dish.
  • Pour the stock into the dish. Cover and bake for about 30 minutes.
  • Uncover and continue cooking for a further 10 minutes or so to brown the faggots.
  • Remove the faggots from the dish and keep warm.
  • The remaining gravy may then be thickened with corn flour or gravy granules / powder, if preferred.
  • Serve with creamed potatoes.
