Sticky Onion Marmalade Sausages

"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."

  1. 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!
  2. 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!
  3. 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 :)
  4. This is really wonderful! We had it with hot Italian sausages. Can't wait to try it with other kinds. I can see how it would be marvelous with cheese and crackers. Will be making this over the Christmas holidays for sure! Thank you for sharing!


I live in the South of England, no kids but preparing for one day cooking for a whole brood hopefully! I love Australia most of all for food - exotic food but also hearty homecooked aswell. I enjoy salsa to burn off the excess calories and one day again i hope to be some good at it!
