This classic, comforting recipe is super quick to make and is the perfect winter dish.


  • 8 great quality sausages

  • 1 red onion, finely diced

  • 2 tbsp olive oil

  • crushed sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

  • 2 cloves garlic, roughly chopped

  • 100g bacon, cubed

  • Batter

  • 100g plain flour

  • 2 free-range eggs

  • 300ml full-fat milk/100 ml cream

  • Pinch of crushed sea salt


  • 1.

    Preheat the oven to 180C. Put the sausages in a medium roasting tin (so they are quite snug). Scatter over the onion, garlic, bacon, season with crushed sea salt and freshly ground black pepper and drizzle with the olive oil. Bake in the oven for 10-15 minutes until the sausages are beginning to brown and the onions are tinged at the edges.

  • 2.

    For the batter, sift the flour into a mixing bowl with the salt. Make a well in the centre and crack in the eggs. Beat lightly, then gradually pour in the milk, beating all the time, until you have a smooth batter.

  • 3.

    Remove the roasting tin from the oven and pour the batter over the sausages.

  • 4.

    Return to the oven for a further 12 - 15 minutes until the batter is crisp, golden and well risen. Serve immediately.
