Bangers and Mash – with roast onion gravy

Bangers and Mash – with roast onion gravy

It’s been a long hung-over Friday in work, so what better way to treat it than with bangers and mash and a movie – I won’t bore you with details on how to grill a sausage or mash potatoes – except that Rayne added in some strong mustard which gave it a bit more body. So here’s the recipe for the gravy.

4 med onions, thinly sliced in moons
2 tablespoons of veg. oil
1 heaped teaspoon grainy mustard
1 table spoon of honey
Salt & Pepper
1 servingspoon of flour
1 servingspoon of butter

Coat onions in oil and then mix in salt, pepper, mustard and honey – pop into a hot oven for1/2 hour till they are getting black around the edges – only some of the onions now, not all of them.

Melt butter into a pan – and then stir in the flour – then add in the onions and coat thoroughly. Gradually add water until you get a nice sauce – sirring all the time to avoid lumps. All to simmer gently for a few minutes – taste and season accordingly. It’s incredible how dark the gravy will get with just the natural colour from the browned/blacked onions.

Spoon over of a bed of mustard mash with nice big thick butchers sausages – mmmm mmmm good, as the little Bisto guy would say.

I would say ‘Up yours, Bisto kid’ but they’re too cute
