Sausage and Mash has to be the ultimate comfort food. Take this classic dish to the next level with my Onion Gravy recipe. So tasty, like a hug in a bowl!


  • 0.5 tbsp oil
  • 8 sausages
  • 1 large onion
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 3 tbsp plain flour
  • 500ml hot beef stock
  • 1 tbsp Worcester sauce
  • optional: chopped parsley

To Serve:

  • mashed potato
  • peas


  1. Add the oil and sausages to a frying pan and cook on low for 15 minutes until the sausages are cooked through, turning regularly.
  2. Meanwhile slice the onion into thin rings.
  3. Remove the sausages from the pan and place them to one side in a bowl.
  4. Add the butter to the pan and melt. Add the onions and garlic cook for 3 minutes.
  5. Add the flour, mix well and cook for 1 minute.
  6. Add the beef stock a little at a time, mixing well so as to remove any lumps.
  7. Add the Worcester sauce and cook for 3 minutes until the gravy has thickened.
  8. Add the sausages back into the pan and cook for another 2-3 minutes until they are warmed through.
  9. This is optional but you can add a little chopped parsley to the top.
  10. Serve immediately with mashed potato and peas.


I used turkey sausages for this recipe but pork, chicken or veggie sausages will work too. Veggie sausages may need less frying time in Step 1 so check the cooking instructions on the packet.
