  1. Brown the sausage slowly in skillet, pricking skins first to prevent burning. Remove and drain on paper towels; discard the fat in the pan.
  2. Melt the butter in the same pan; add the chives and the flour.
  3. Cook over low heat for 2 to 3 minutes, add thyme, bay leaf, marjoram, and wine, stirring to blend well. Simmer for 20 minutes.
  4. Return the sausage to the skillet and heat in sauce until sauce thickens.
  5. Remove from heat and discard bay leaf.
  6. Serve with mashed potatoes, omelet, or popovers.
