This dish is a french classic dish served in every household and mine wasn’t an exception as this dish was one of my favorites . In france we call it ” SAUCISSES LENTILLES” and is best served with a some dijon mustard . We often use a sausage called “SAUCISSES DE MORTEAU” but i cannot find it in Ireland so i used some polish smoked sausage that did the trick.
