- In a saucepan, mix corn relish ingredients together, except the cornflour.
- Bring to a boil and let simmer on medium-high heat for 10 min.
- Mix cornstarch in ¼ cup (60 mL) water. Stir into the saucepan and let mixture thicken. Remove from heat and let cool.
- To cook sausages, preheat grill to medium heat or oven to 425°F (220°C) and cook for 10–15 min, or until well done.
- If using baguettes, slice each lengthwise, open flat and top with cheese slices.
- Place on the grill or oven rack and heat until cheese melts. Remove from grill and cut into thirds to make buns.
- To serve, fill buns with sausages and garnish with corn relish and herbs of your choice.
