Sausages with Caramelized Onions and Parmesan Mash

4 red onions, quartered (or cut into eighths if large)
2 1/2 Tbsp soft brown sugar
1/2 tsp chili flakes
sea salt
freshly ground black pepper
2 1/2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
2 1/2 Tbsp red wine vinegar or balsamic vinegar
8 good-quality sausages
Parmesan mash (see below)


  1. Preheat the oven to 400° F. Put the onions in a baking dish and sprinkle with the sugar, chili flakes, salt, and pepper. Drizzle with olive oil and vinegar and bake for 35 minutes.
  2. Cook the sausages in a frying pan over a medium-high heat for about 15 minutes until well browned. Serve with the caramelized onions and Parmesan mash.

Parmesan Mash

1 lb 12 oz waxy potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks
1/2 cup milk
1 oz butter
1/3 cup finely grated Parmesan cheese
sea salt
freshly ground black pepper

Cook the potatoes in boiling salted water until tender, then drain and mash. Heat the milk and butter in a saucepan until the butter has melted and then beat into the mash until smooth. Add the Parmesan and beat well. Season with salt and pepper.

Notes: We realized after cooking this that we were supposed to use the smaller breakfast sausages. The photo in the cook book was a bit misleading and we used large sausages instead. Still, a tasty meal.
