Glamorgan sausage

Glamorgan sausage (Welsh: Selsig Morgannwg) is a traditional Welsh vegetarian sausage for which the main ingredients are cheese (usually Caerphilly), leeks and breadcrumbs.[1][2]

Glamorgan sausage is mentioned by George Borrow in his work, Wild Wales, written in the 1850s and published in the next decade. These sausages were originally made with Glamorgan cheese which is no longer made due to the near-extinction of the Glamorgan cattle from which it was produced. In modern versions, Caerphilly cheese is used, which a direct descendant of the old traditional Glamorgan cheese recipe and lends the same general texture and flavour.[3]
