  1. Boil the potatoes, then drain well, mash with the butter and milk.
  2. Season with pepper and a very small amount of salt.
  3. Pre-heat a grill, oven or frying pan and cook the sausages well.
  4. Meanwhile, place the oil into a saucepan and add the onions.
  5. Cook for about 10 minutes to soften and take a little colour.
  6. Add the vinegar and boil away completely, stirring all the time.
  7. Add the water and bring to the boil, once boiling, simmer for 5 minutes.
  8. Then thicken with the granules.
  9. Place the mash on the plate, top with 2 sausages and spoon over the onion gravy.

Phil's Tips

Salt can be reduced, as the gravy will balance out.

Adding vinegar to the onions and reducing them gives the sauce a nice sharp edge; this also helps to reduce the amount of salt needed to make a nice sauce.

All butter can be removed from the mash, as you have plenty of gravy to soften the mash.

Great, simple food which can be made the day before and re-heated.

If you do not have granules, add 1 tbsp of flour to the cooked and reduced onions, then add water and a beef stock cube, this will thicken perfectly.
