Method

  1. Tip the flour and a pinch of salt into a large bowl. Make a well in the centre and pour the beaten egg into it, with a splash of milk. Draw in the flour with a whisk, gradually adding the remaining milk.
  2. Heat oven to 220C/fan 200C/gas 7 and grease a 15cm x 25cm ovenproof baking dish with oil. Arrange the onion, apple and sausages in the baking dish and season to taste. Cook for about 10 mins, until the onion and apple soften. Pour over the batter and cook for a further 30-40 mins. The batter should be well risen and golden. Serve with gravy and mashed potato.

I used thin taste the difference sausages as that's all I had. It was also v soggy but the outside was crisp verging on burnt. I thought it tasted lovely anyway but my boy didn't like/eat soggy bit! I'm wondering if its coz there was a lot of water in the sausages- prob best drain them before adding the batter or use really good sausages that have minimal water content!

I really liked this, thought the apples tasted lovely with the sausages. Unfortunately mine was a little soggy in places, perhaps needed a little longer in the oven :-)

gorgeous recipe this! i added some thyme to the batter mix along with a tsp of mustard powder. i also flavoured the oil with half a clove of garlic. you can just taste the garlic without it being too over powering. my spanish friends love it over here!

Mmmmm.
Highly recommended with course grain mustard and garlic mash.
So so quick and easy - a good sunday meal for when you have guests.

very easy to make, and the boys liked the look of it! We would'nt put the apple in again, and maybe try it without the onions, as we too had a soggy bottom! Tasted really nice though.

Another dish from good food that always gets eaten. I plan around 4-5 meals a week and the others are pot luck from whatever ingredients are in the fridge. This dish often pops into my head on such occasions. So simple to make and my 16 year old daughter has now learned to make it on her own. Great for a large family meal I have cooked this with 24 sausages before! I think the quantities shown are a little mean there are 5 of us (inc a 3 year old) and they would fight if I only did 6 sausages. I also find the batter is too hard and crispy so I double the recipe amount and find its moist in the middle and crispy on the outside. Mmmmm
