Method

  1. Heat the oil in a medium frying pan (one the sausages will fit in fairly snugly). Add the sausages and fry for 8-10 minutes, turning them often. Turn the grill to high. Splash a couple of tablespoons of red wine into the pan if you are using it, then pour in the stock and stir in the caramelised red onions. Allow the mixture to bubble for 3-4 minutes, so it thickens a little and turns into a rich gravy. Remove from the heat.
  2. Spread the potatoes so they roughly cover the sausages and gravy. Put the frying pan under the grill for about 8 minutes until the potatoes turn crisp and golden. Serve while bubbling and hot – there is no need to add seasoning.

Really disappointed with this recipe I don't know anybody that has ready made caramelised onions in their fridge so by the time you add 40+ minutes to make them it is definitely not a quick meal. It also doesn't tell you in the recipe how to make the onions so anybody who didn't know would be stuck. Found the overall taste fairly bland it definitely needed something else adding to it. Probably wouldn't make again :-(

Loved this recipe! Took everyone's advice and parboiled the potatoes. Spread with a little melted butter before putting under the grill and they came out really crispy. Used a smaller amount of caramelised onion chutney and came out lovely. Served with yorkshire pudding and was a delicious midweek meal that looks like you put loads of effort in :)

This recipe was simple to make using storecupboard ingredients I already had. I used cooked ordinary potatoes and sliced them as i didn't have long life potatoes, and glazed them with melted butter before putting them under the grill to make them lovely and crisp. I also added a small amount of garlic and a dash of worcestershire sauce to the gravy which I think worked well, and some cornflour to thicken it, as i prefer a thicker gravy. Overall delicious, and will certainly be making again!

Couldn't find long life potatoes to save my life-but used standard baking potatoes thinly sliced and precooked & it tasted delicious!

I added leeks and mushrooms to this one. Screwed up and got distracted by my boyfriend and added 3/4pint of stock, but no matter, drained that out, had boiled the potatoes first after reading the comments above, and voíla! Perfect. Really filling and easy to make!

yep, thumbs up for this one! But as similarly to what others have said, I chopped the potatoes into thin slices, boiled for 7ish minutes, then layered on top of the sausage and gravy. Grated some cheese on top and stuck it under the grill and it was lovely! I also added some wholegrain mustard into the gravy and a wee dab of hp sauce.

I loved this recipe - I love sausage and mash but this was amazing! I added some leeks to the sausage/gravy mix, and made mash instead of grilling the potatoes on top. So easy and absolutely delicious - my boyfriend couldn't believe I had made it!!

I precooked new potatoes & used, I added red pepper with the onion, this was lovely, would make it again.

Successful when used with small red potatoes, sliced and pre-cooked, long life potatoes ...waste of time!

Nice taste but very difficult to get the long life potatoes :-)

This is a great way to serve good butchers sausages.

The caramelised onions in this were delicious. went so well with the sausages! I was a bit disappointed with the recipe though - firstly, it took a lot longer than it says it would and secondly, the 8 minutes for the potatoes just wansn't enough. After 8 minutes they were still completely solid. I left them in a bit longer and they started to burn so i had to bake the whole thing which took twice as long. In the future, i would cook the sausages with the caramelised onions but make the potatoes seperately. Still a very tasty dish though!!
