Along with laverbread, a Welsh speciality. These are made of cheese and leeks, chopped and bound together with breadcrumbs, and then breaded and fried after being formed into sausagelike shapes.

Here's what looks to be a well-tested recipe (gotten from, but obviously all over the Internet):

  • Fresh breadcrumbs - 175g (6 oz)
  • Caerphilly cheese - 110g (4 oz), grated
  • Small leek - 1, washed and very finely chopped
  • Fresh parsley - 1 tbsp, chopped
  • Mustard powder - 1 pinch
  • Eggs - 2, separated
  • Milk - 4 tbsp
  • Plain flour - for coating
  • Vegetable oil - 1 tbsp
  • Butter - 15g (½ oz)

      Mix the breadcrumbs, cheese, leek, parsley and mustard together. Add 1 whole egg and 1 egg yolk and mix thoroughly. Add enough of the milk to bind the mixture together.

      Divide the mixture into 8 and shape into sausages.

      Beat the remaining egg white until frothy. Dip the sausages in the egg white, then roll in the flour to coat.

      Heat the oil and the butter in a frying pan and fry for 5-10 minutes until golden brown. Serve hot or cold.

      These are very nummy and a good vegetarian option if you're in Wales (just be careful about what they're frying in) or anywhere in Britain that might have them. I would think Cheddar would work fine if you couldn't find Caerphilly cheese.
