Hugh Whittley Fearningstall's recipe is fairly standard - use Pork Belly.

Serve with Onion Gravy

okay: caillettes aux epinards

1.5kg spinach
a few leaves sorrel
100g pork liver
250g pork belly
I large onion
3 cloves garlic
parsley
25g lard
250g pig caul
1 glass dry white wine

Blanch the spinach and sorrel. When wilted drain and squezze out as much liquid as poss, then chop very finely with the meats, onion and garlic.

Roll into 6 balls and wrap in the caul. Dot these with lard and put in a small dish with the wine poured around and cook at a medium heat for about an hour.

If you don't have caul, you can make it in a terrine dish, mixing the wine into the mixture, and lay some slices of pork fat over the top - in which case cook for 1 1/2 hours.

No Heart ?
I'm thinking that you could probably replace the spinach with watercress which might add a nicer, peppery flavour.
And of course if caul is difficult to find then you could take HFW's tip and bash some bacon out nice and thin.

Got any good Pigs Trotter recipes Billy ?

I can get the caul as I have friend who owns one of the largest butchers shops on the Island & he makes his own faggots, pies etc but like everyone else he is under certain restraints as to preservatives etc. me I just want to make em & put them in the freezer for quick homemande meals.

Well used a mixture of recipies & made `em. They were really good & I have enough for 2 more meals to go in the freezer, so well on the way to my 2 weeks of very little cooking now. Just pies, meat pud & bacon rolls to make. chef2

I use all the heart in hurkey or stuff them with black pudding, Gus.

I was thinking you try replacing the spinach with nettles - works in most other applications.

I used equal amounts of
heart
liver
meat
breadcrumbs
A bit of bacon
onion
plenty of herbs
mixed up with an egg
Made it into balls & cooked in a slow oven.

Next I will cut down on the liver a bit.
But they really were delish.

Well made my second lot of faggotts. OOOOh they were good.

Not so much liver, forgot the egg & added some porry oats probably not equal quantities of anything, just what was left in the freezer. Made enough for 2 meals as well, so just as well they were good.

Apart from cooking, took about 1/2 hour to mince & mix & shape.
Slow cooked for about an hour.

Then froze. chef2
