Hej hej!

Some other folks have described the differences in bacon, so I thought I'd do the sausages. Bangers tend to me ground a little bit finer than most trad American breakfast sausages, and have a milder flavour. They have little to no sage, and only a bit of white pepper in place of black; instead they have marjoram, thyme, and a bit of nutmeg. If you want to make things like toad in the hole (sausages in Yorkshire puding) or a Dublin caudle, they're really reqired; American sagey sausages won't work.
