Method

  1. Fry sausages for 15 mins or until browned, then remove from pan and keep warm. Heat onions in same pan, then add flour, stirring for 1 min. Add thyme, then gradually add stock. Bring to boil then simmer for 5 mins until smooth. Add Worcestershire sauce, season and serve with sausages.

  2. For the onions: Makes 600g, which is 3 batches. Prep time 5 mins, cook time 30 mins. Melt the butter in a large, deep frying pan and stir through the onions.

10/10, also always serve the sticky onion gravy with Toad in the Hole and have used it in place of plain boring gravy many times
