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. Cover with a lid and cook gently for about 10 mins, until softened. Remove lid, add sugar, then cook 15-20 mins, stirring, until all of the liquid has evaporated and onions have turned golden. Divide into 3 batches to make the recipes, right. Will keep in the fridge for up to 5 days, or freeze for up to 1 month.

The basic sticky onions are for 3 batches as it says in Step 2, so if you're making for 4 people, divide the Basic Sticky Onions part of the recipe by 3, ie - use 4 onions. Makes a really good gravy but use a good quality beef stock and not too much muscovado sugar as it becomes too sweet.

So so tasty, & I agree on the onion:sugar ratio comments - I used 4 large onions & needed a good couple tbsp sugar. But gorgeous all the same!

It is a tasty recipe. 39 reviews and nobody spotted the typo? The recipe calls for 12 onions!!!! I believe that should read 1-2 onions!
