Selsig Morgannwg (Glamorgan Sausages)

This is a taditional Welsh recipe that I have come to love. There's no meat in the "sausages" as you'll see. Cheddar cheese and mustard powder were mainstays in the early Welsh diet, and still are today.
Try these cheese and breadcrumb sausages with a salad, or even as a snack!
I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

4 oz. strong cheddar cheese, grated
4 oz. white bread crumbs
1 small onion, finely chopped
1 tsp mustard powder
1 tbl chopped parsley
pinch of thyme
salt and pepper
3 eggs
dried breadcrumbs for coating
oil for frying

In a bowl, beat two of the eggs and add the mustard, parsley, thyme, and seasoning. In a separate bowl, mix together the cheese, breadcrumbs and the onion. Now combine the egg mixture with the bread mixture. With floured hands, form the mixture into approximately 10 sausage-shaped rolls. Beat the remianing egg in a bowl, dip the sausages, coat them with dry breadcrumbs and fry in hot oil until golden brown. Drain well.

Fried, cheesy, and yummy. All wrong, but so right!
