Spot on. I bought sweet chilli sausages from Asda. We all had two each with fries. Diet? What diet!

This is my partners favourite recipe, it feels abit like your being abit naughty while dieting! I seriously count calories so just have half a bread bun and serve with salad and coleslaw, whereas he has chips to man it up even more, so they're easily versatile for families! I'd definitely recommend using both red and white onions too! A quick and easy winner of a recipe!

Made these last night, I used Sainsbury's Ultimate Pork Sausages. I think the quality of the sausage makes every difference. I found the onions too sweet though. I cooked out the tomato paste as recommended by another commenter and didn't taste any tomato at all. So maybe I overcooked it out, the onions went quite jam like and not like the picture. Overall it was quick and easy, would probably try again. Served with fries! I also griddled my sausages to give the BBQ look.

Really nice and easy to make. I used one red and one white onion for a bit of variety. I would definitely make these again.

Tasty and simple. One isn't very much so I made sweet potato wedges for the side. The onions weren't very spicy so next time I might add some more chilli.

I made these bad boys the other week from the magazine and the onions with the sweet chilli and tomato is nom nom nom! The only tip i'd give is cook out the tomato puree for a bit with the onions as non cooked out tomato puree can be quite harsh! And make sure ya buy high pork content bangers! None of this 30% value/basics sausage nonsense! hehe! :D
