"The giant sat back down on the sofa, which sagged under his weight, and began taking all sorts of things out of the pockets of his coat: a copper kettle, a squashy package of sausages..."
(Sorcerer's Stone 48).

Hagrid does ask for a cup of tea before we learn that he has a package of sausages in his pocket, but we've already talked about tea! Which means that our next new item to make is sausage!

There are multiple kinds of vegetarian sausage products to choose from, and the ones I've tasted are all delicious. Of course, you could go whole-hog (sorry, I had to) and make your own sausages, but that involves all kinds of work and finding a place that sells vegan casings... no thank you. Hagrid cooks his sausages over the fire on a poker:

"Nobody said a thing while the giant was working, but as he slid the first six fat, juicy, slightly burnt sausages from the poker, Dudley fidgeted a bit"(Sorcerer's Stone 48).

If you want to cook your sausage camping-style like Hagrid, I recommend using one of the sausage creations by Light Life. They are delicious and large enough to accommodate being stuck with a poker. If you'd prefer the microwave or skillet option, you might want to try Morningstar Farms' Sausage Links. They're excellent. And since I don't really have access to a campfire here in suburbia (and it's one of the hottest weeks of the year here in Michigan), I'm  going with Morningstar Links in the microwave. Easy.

You Will Need (like stated above):
Your preferred sausages

1. Place your desired number of sausages on a plate or skillet and cook according to directions on the package.
2. Enjoy your sausages!
