when my husband and I married, my best friend was less than impressed.
Don’t get me wrong – she loves Bearhands, but she thought that two keen cooks marrying each other was a waste. She’d spent her adult life sustained on toast and takeaway, then married a bloke who couldn’t boil water and found herself cooking every night. The thought of two capable cooks in the same household seemed excessive.
sausages in tomato and onion gravy
- 6 thick pork sausages – don’t skimp here, buy the best snags you can.
- 400g tin chopped tomatoes
- 2 brown onions
- 1/2 can water
- 1 heaped teaspoon plain flour
Brown the sausages in a large saucepan. Slice the onion finely. Once the sausages are almost cooked through, remove them from the pan and saute the onion in the pan for a few minutes. Add the tomato puree, then fill the tin halfway with water and add it to the tomato and onion gravy. Then add a heaped teaspoon of plain flour, stir and simmer for five minutes.
Return the sausages to the pan and simmer for a further five minutes.
Serve with mashed potatoes. I like sweet potato mash but Bearhands is a puritan and believes that traditional potato mash is the superior accompaniment for sausages. Whichever way, it’s delicious!
