These are unbelievable! I love sausage and mash and this is a favorite of mine, the longer you cook it the thicker the sauce gets so cook according to your taste. I have also made this marmalade to eat cold with cheese and crackers instead of a pickle - delish either way.
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 4 onions, thinly sliced
- 12 spring onions, thinly sliced (green onions)
- 8 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
- 1⁄2 cup merlot (red wine)
- 1⁄4 cup balsamic vinegar
- 6 sausages
- Brown sausages in a pan then drain and put to one side but keeping warm.
- Melt butter in a pan, then add the onions, spring onions/green onions, and garlic.
- Cook over high heat, stirring, for 10 minutes, until onions are soft.
- Add the red wine and vinegar, and cook for 5 to 10 minutes, until liquid is almost evaporated.
- Add the sausages to the onion marmalade in the pan and coat thoroughly then remove from pan and serve.
This was really tasty. I did the sausages in the oven and then finished them off in the pan with the sauce. I served them with mash and mixed roasted veg. Very delicious!
This was great, especially for such a simple, no-fuss kind of recipe. I didn't have merlot, but just subbed another red wine I had hanging around, and it turned out great. I used kangaroo sausages, and the sweetness of the balsamic vinegar and the wine offset them perfectly. I served them on a bed of mashed pumpkin with steamed broccoli and cauliflower. Delish!
I made this with thick beef sausages that I pre boiled first to remove most of the fat. I am not a fan of sausages but DH loves them so I made these to please him. The sauce has a nice flavour and went well over mashed potatoes. Another 'keeper' for us :)
