Iggle Biggle

– Quick meal idea for toddlers

metm5.jpgNo, no. Not Iggle Piggle. We’re talking Iggle Biggle. Or, just plain Biggles, to be more precise.

We just love London’s oldest sausage shop to help us make a quick meal for our youngest. And you will too.

Biggles produce the finest sausages in the land, made fresh daily with British Farm reared lean red meat. They’re gluten free so you can avoid the nasties added to other bangers – and avoid those scary pink things at the supermarket.

Try the traditional Biggles Breakfast sausage or if you prefer sausages sans pork, give Biggles 24 hours’ notice and they’ll prepare a delicious lamb and rosemary chipolata for you. Then simply thaw ‘n throw (a culinary term for toddler cooking) into a medium oven for 20 minutes giving you time to put peas in a pot, and make a little pasta (mash is optional, after all).

Your little one will love ‘em. Maybe more than Iggle Piggle. (And you will too.)

What Mini says:
More!

What Moi thinks:
Is that “more” sausages or “more” of that silly creature with the red blanket?

Find Biggles Gourmet Sausages at 66 Marylebone Lane W1U 2PF
