How tasty was this? Excellent recipe - will only ever cook sausages like this in future, enjoyed by all. Minimum washing up and maximum comfort food. I did add 400ml of stock as suggested and used a little cornflour to thicken the gravy. Top marks from us.

So quick and easy - love this recipe! I used 500ml lamb stock (I had run out of beef stock) and two tablespoons of flour to thicken it slightly. Will definitely make again.

Excellent. Followed the suggestions below and used more stock and flour and threw in some chunky mushrooms half way into the cooking time.

Great recipe, done it a few times now, also used white wine vinegar when didn't have balsamic and that came out great too. Won't do sausage and mash any other way now - plus really saves on washing up!

Absolutely delicious. Made this one night when there were only sausages left in the fridge - but wasn't really in the mood for eating them. Loved it though and so did the whole family. Would definitely make it again, and it's so easy to make - with less mess than cooking the sausages under the grill and the gravy in a pan.

Made this many times, great simple recipe to make a tasty dinner, the gravy is lovely (I do slice the onions though as opposed to wedges and use Hendersons relish as opposed to Worcestershire sauce). Nice with any greens / veg.

Love this recipe. Always do sausages this way now.

Really enjoyed this but next time would slice the onion wedges more thinly so that they cooked to a soft texture rather than retaining some bite but that is a matter of taste. I added halved chestnut mushrooms and some sliced courgettes to the onions because I wanted to use them up and that made a really substantial meal

Easy to make and really tasty. I use this almost every time we have sausages now!

Tasty and easy. Did thicken the gravy with Arrowroot, once the dish was ready.

Very tasty. Went down well with adults and 2-year old.

Very tasty, with a lovely bite from the balsamic and Worcestershire sauce. Will probably add a little flour next time to thicken the gravy slightly as it was a little runny. However, a hit with all the family.

Very nice but 300ml stock is nowhere near enough. I used nearly 500ml to give a useable amount of gravy.
