Cathleen's Bangers in Rum

Europe, North: Irish

This is the first meal we had after my sister got out of the hospital from having a baby.


1 lb Shannon Traditional Sausages(Bangers)
1 1/2 to 2oz rum (white or dark)
2 1/2 tablespoons dark brown sugar


Cook sausage until lightly brown in skillet with a little oil. Drain on paper towel. Slice sausage into three equal parts. Steep in rum for two hours. Sprinkle sugar over rum and sausage making sure they're covered in liquid. Cook at 325 degrees in oven for 15-20 minutes or until bubbling. Serve with cocktail sticks.
