Bangers & Mash (Sausage with Onion Gravy)

Prep Time:

5 minutes

Cook Time:


4 Servings


About the Recipe


  • 1/2 tbsp oil

  • 8 sausages of choice

  • 1 large onion , halved and finely sliced (yellow, white or brown)

  • 2 garlic cloves , minced

  • 3 tbsp flour (plain)

  • 2 cups beef stock/broth , low sodium, store bought or homemade

  • 1/4 tsp salt

  • 1/2 tsp black pepper

  • Peas


Step 1

Cook sausages: Heat oil in a large skillet / fry pan over medium high heat. Add sausages and cook, turning, until browned as much as possible all over and cooked through. Cook time will differ depending on sausage size – mine take around 8 minutes.

Step 2

Remove sausages onto a plate. Turn heat down to medium.

Step 3

2 tbsp oil remaining: You need around 2 tbsp oil left in the skillet. If you have much less, add a bit of butter or oil.

Step 4

Saute onion and garlic: Add onion and garlic, cook until golden brown – around 4 minutes.

Step 5

Cook off flour 2 minutes: Add flour and mix through. Then cook, stirring constantly for 2 minutes.

Step 6

Gradually add beef stock: Add about 3/4 cup of beef broth and mix into the onion so it becomes a sludge. Then add remaining beef broth and mix until combined. If it's lumpy, use a whisk to help make it smooth.

Step 7

Thicken gravy: Simmer, stirring, for 2 to 3 minutes until the gravy thickens but is slightly thinner than you want – it will thicken more as you serve it.

Step 8

Season: Add salt and pepper. Stir, taste, then add more salt if you want.

Step 9

Serve sausages with plenty of gravy, with mashed potato and peas on the side. (Low carb option – Creamy Cauliflower Mash)
