Ingredients

  • 1 red onion , cut into wedges, layers separated
  • 8 thick low-fat pork sausages
  • 1 tsp olive oil

For the batter

  • 100g plain flour
  • 1 medium egg
  • 300ml skimmed milk
  • 2 tsp wholegrain mustard
  • 1 tsp fresh thyme leaf
  • steamed carrots and cabbage, to serve

Method

  • STEP 1

    Preheat the oven to 200C/Gas 6/fan oven 180C. Tip the onions into a small shallow non-stick tin (about 23x30cm/ 9x12in). Arrange the sausages on top of the onions, then add the oil and roast for 20 minutes.

  • STEP 2

    While they are roasting, make the batter. Sift the flour into a bowl, drop the egg in to the centre and beat in the milk a little at a time until it makes a smooth batter. Stir in the mustard and thyme and season.

  • STEP 3

    Pour the batter quickly into the tin and return to the oven for 40 minutes until the batter is risen and golden. Serve with steamed carrots and cabbage.
