Sausages with Onion Marmalade

On 17th January 2016, This was dinner

I have to start off with a heartfelt apology to my sister for the abomination that was dinner yesterday. I’m sure you enjoyed your cereal when you got home. The moral of the story is always trust your instincts with a recipe and try and read through and do the prep before you a) natter as you cook and b) drink wine! We ended up with a very dry and tasteless butternut squash lasagne. I will redeem myself next time, I promise.

Sunday’s dinner made up for it (for us, not for my sister). You can’t go wrong with sausages, onions and gravy can you?


  • Finely slice a couple of red onions
  • Finely slice a couple of white onions
  • Finely slice a couple of shallots (my white onions were tiny)
  • Preheat the oven to 180°c (fan)
  • Get sausages, red wine, white wine vinegar, caster sugar, oil & seasoning ready


Heat some oil in a pan, brown the sausages and remove from the pan.

Make sure there is enough oil on a very gentle heat and add all of the onions. Cook for about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Add the wine, vinegar, sugar and seasoning and turn the heat up to bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and stir for a couple of minutes then transfer to an over proof dish.

Pop in the oven for 15 minutes. Stir will then add the sausages, after 15 minutes, stir again and then but back in oven for another 15.

We served ours with chips and gravy. Yum.


The original recipe can be found in Mary Berry’s Cook Now Eat Later.

Walter saw his first snow today. We got up bright and early as we knew it wouldn’t hang around. There wasn’t loads to throw him into confusion but there was a lot of sniffing involved and a lot of us laughing and disappearing snowballs. Like an idiot I forgot to take my phone to get some photos.
