Method

  1. Heat the olive oil in a large frying pan set over a medium heat, tip in the sausages, then cook for 10 mins, turning every so often. Stir in the onions, then leave to cook for 5 mins more until the sausages are browned and the onions softened.
  2. Tip in the garlic, fennel seeds and grapes and cook for 5 more mins, stirring often, until the grapes are starting to soften. Pour over the vinegar and swirl around the pan. Cook for a few mins more until the onions are sticky and the sausages cooked through. Serve with soft polenta or mashed potato.

I was sceptical about this recipe at first but can safely say that it's well worth a try. A really yummy twist on the classic bangers and mash. The smell when the fennel seeds and garlic hit the pan is to die for! I didn't have any red wine vinegar so, like others, substituted with balsamic and a splash of red wine. Really tasty. Will definitely be cooking it again!

I made something very similar in the summer, I know for a fact that this recipe is a winner. I'll be making it tonight and (like others) will be using wine instead of wine-vinegar; only through necessity though, we have a lot of wine at the minute...

Sausage with grapes sounds crazy, but this is delicious! I just left out the fennel seeds as I'm not that keen on fennel.

This was delicious, I cooked this for some friends and they loved it. Was a bit dubious about the grapes but they really added a lovely sweetness and tasted beautiful with the red wine vinegar. Made a nice change to the standard mash, veg and gravy!

It was nice, but I wasn't too keen on the fennel seed. But thats probably just a matter of personal taste.

A great summery sausage recipe! I was looking for a change from the more traditional and wintery recipes with beer and wine and I wasn't disappointed.

Excellent - really easy and very tasty. Grapes went really well with the sausages and also liked the red wine vinegar. Served with vegetables & new potatoes. Hit and recommended!

Delicious way of doing something as basic as sausage and mash! I liked the grapes but next time I might substitute for little cherry tomatoes or peppers. I served with cheese & spring onion mash, and some fresh veg and it went down a treat! Will definitely make again!

I thought it was great with the red wine vinegar - it added some acidity that balanced the sweetness of the grapes.

Excellent. I also used red wine instead of vinegar.

Delicious! I used balsamic vinegar rather than red wine vinegar, with an extra splash of red wine.

This is a fine recipe, but I prefer it with a glass of red wine and no vinegar.
