Potato and Sausage Star

This lovely brunch or breakfast recipe uses potatoes, flavoured with herbs and cheese made into a delightful ten pointed star shape using your favourite sausages. Here we have used frankfurts that are so easy to cook with. You could however, cook any sausage to shape the star. The result is an attractive centrepiece that makes a very tasty and satisfying meal.
