 I love discovering unique hotdogs from around the world. Galette saucisse is a speciality of Rennes in France. A buckwheat pancake is wrapped around a fresh grilled sausage and served from carts in markets.

 It is very popular and is a tradition to eat them before football games. The local team Stade Rennais has a song involving the galette saucisse. You can read the lyrics and hear it HERE.

I made some for staff at work using a simple recipe for Galette bretonne and some good veal and pork sausages I bought at a butcher in Kensington. I spread a mixture of Dijon mustard and mayo on the galette before wrapping the sausage. They were great.

 I found this interesting video of a man making these snacks on a Haute-Bretagne tourist site:

Here's a recipe for the crepes if you want to try these at home.

Galettes de Sarrasin
  • ½ cup buckwheat flour
  • ½ cup all purpose flour
  • ½ cup milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp water
Whisk all ingredients together and let rest for an hour. Heat a non-stick 8 inch pan. Pour 3 to 4 tbsp of batter into the heated pan while tilting to spread the batter over the bottom of the pan. Turn the crepe over when the edges are dry and crispy and cook for just a few more seconds before taking it out of the pan.
To make the galette saucisse, spread the hot crepe with mustard and wrap around your favourite sausage
