Oh no. It is too greasy! I tried that my first year in 2011 and they went straight in to the trash. Good luck

Mrs P makes them with "Jimmy Dean's" brand sausage meat and they turn out OK.

No, I don't have high hopes but I'm going to give it a go. Will report back later!

Haha! The extent of my baking is mince pies and sausage rolls. Christmas pudding, Christmas cake and marzipan stollen all from Tescos!

One year I forgot to cook the turkey! I had it ready, just forgot about it - too many glasses of fizz!

Not half bad! They're a bit more peppery than British sausage meat but they'll do very nicely!

They look great. Mrs P's turned out well too.

The English Pork Pie Company
I don't know if anyone has posted about this this place before but I found this company based in Buffalo New York and I ordered pork pie, sausage rolls and scotch eggs to be sent to my son and daughter in law (in Chicago) for Christmas and they said they were absolutely brilliant! I saw the pork pie when we factime'd and it look better than the ones I got here!

Oh yes, discussed several times. I think Yorkieabroad has bought from them, and perhaps Uncle_Bob. Lansbury is their honorary ambassador to BE.

Folks in the Metrowest area...there's a new Indian grocery store that's opened up on the Northborough/Shrewsbury town line called India Market.

The restaurant that's attached isn't open yet, but it had loads of Brit chocs, from the UK. PG Tips for $16 for a 240 count box and loads of other things. Massive bottle of Robinsons for $8, which is much larger than the one in Wegmans for the same money.

And of course, loads of Indian sauce mixes and microwave meals for pretty cheap as well as the herbs and spices.

There's also a really decent little Middle Eastern grocery store in the same plaza that's a good spot for random things and well priced cuts of meat.

Thanks for letting know, will check it out- think I did see that before while passing..

On a side note in that same lane- there's a bakery called European bakery (which I saw while passing)- do you or anyone else know much about it?
I was hoping they sell French Macaroons there..

No, but check out some of the Brazilian bakeries in the area, a lot of them are really good and a lot cheaper than the regular ones that are around.

There's an amazing one that's in Marlborough, the little plaza just before you get to the country golf club but there are loads of others.

For posh stuff though, Wegmans isn't too bad.

Bit of a hike to the Northborough/Shrewsbury area though...Framingham is a nightmare to get to, but a good one, the one in Bellingham is ungodly huge and very nice, but also a fair run but possibly the least hassle down Rt-85/I-495 and there's a tiny one in Wayland/Sudbury townline but that's a monster of a mare to get to, but it is the one that sells booze.

not really British foods but they are what you might find in sainsburys/waitrose - My Trader Joe's haul:
creme fraiche - the best I've found yet and the closest to real creme fraiche
Petit Basque cheese - from my region of France. Half a circle of heaven! You'd be hard pushed to find this one outside of SW France so I was very pleased to see it in TJs
French liquid soap - orange blossom with honey. Amazing savon de marseille with lovely orange blossom scent. Very gentle and lovely to use.
