Sausage Mash and Onion Gravy

The other night we was working out what to ahve for dinner, we realised we had a huge amount of potatoes that probably should be used up. To use up all these potatoes I suggested we had the good old sauasge mash and Onion gravy for our dinner, so we could make a big batch of mash.

Sausage Mash and Gravy

For the mash:


  • Potatoes (from our allotment but needed using up)
  • Splash of milk
  • a nob of butter
  • Mustard sauce (optional but tasty)


  1. Peel all the potatoes and place in a large pan covered with water. Bring to the boil and boil for 20 minutes until the potatoes are soft enough to slide a knife in easily
  2. Remove pan from heat and drain. Put Potaotes back into pan and place back on hit for 1 mintue to evaporate any remaining water off
  3. Add milk and butter and mustard sauce and with a masher mash until a thick paste.

For the Onion Gravy


  • 1 onion chopped (from our allotment)
  • 1tsp of sugar
  • a knob of butter
  • 400ml hot Stock (we used vegetable but beef stock would have given a darker colour)
  • 1tbsp plain flour
  1. Heat the butter in pan until melted and add the onion and sugar. Very gently cook on a low heat stirring often for 15minute until the onions are really soft
  2. Add the stock and cook for 1 minute. Then remove a small amount of liquid about 50ml.
  3. Add the flour to the small amount of reserved liquid and mix until a thick paste is formed. add the thick paste to the rest of the gravy.
  4. Bring to the boil and then gently simmer



  • 6 good quality sausages


  1. Cook sausages in the oven gas mark 8 for about 30 minutes or according to pack instruction
  2. Serve with mash and pour over the gravy


I love sausage and mash its a comfort food and making our own mash and gravy make it all the more better.
