Slow Cooker Sausages in Onion Gravy

As the nights are drawing in and the temperature begins to drop, we start to wonder when that first frost will be here, and whether we'll we be able to find the ice scraper we tossed aside after last winter, as we ran joyfully into Spring.

As it's British Sausage week this week it would be rude not to share a recipe for one of my family's favourite dishes, sausage and mash, which is perfect comfort food for this miserable weather.

I've been pretty busy recently and have been using my slow cooker a lot more, which makes cooking the evening meal so much easier. Onion gravy cooked in the slow cooker is amazing, and the onions just melt in your mouth - forget the sausages, I would be happy with a bowl of gravy and mash!

Slow Cooker Sausages in Onion Gravy - serves 4/5

tbsp oil
10-12 thick pork sausages
2 large onions, sliced
2 tbsp plain flour
750ml beef stock
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
tbsp Marmite or Bovril
black pepper
  • Heat the oil in a large frying pan
  • Add the sausages and cook over a high heat to brown
  • Add the onions and fry for one minute, stirring continuously 
  • Remove the sausages & onions from the pan and add the flour to the juices in the pan
  • Cook over a low heat for 2 minutes, adding stock, a little at a time, to make a watery paste
  • Add the rest of the stock and stir
  • Add the sausages, onions and gravy to your slow cooker and cook on high for 3-4 hours, until the onions are melt in your mouth soft

Serve with mash and steamed green vegetables - here I served mine with a buttery mash of sweet potato and white potatoes
