Cumberland sausages with onion gravy

recipe Detail


Onions are integral to most of our favourite savoury dishes, but something special happens when they find themselves sitting alongside rich, salty pork sausages. In this sausage and onion gravy recipe, the onions are braised and simmered until soft, smoky and rich, imparting their wonderful flavours.


- Cumberland sausages

- Onions

- Olive oil

- Salt

- Pepper

- Dried thyme

- Cornstarch


1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).

2. Place the Cumberland sausages on a baking tray and drizzle with olive oil. Season with salt, pepper, and dried thyme.

3. Bake the sausages in the oven for 25-30 minutes, or until they are cooked through and golden brown.

4. While the sausages are cooking, prepare the onion gravy. In a large saucepan, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil over medium heat.

5. Add 2 sliced onions to the pan and cook until they are soft and caramelized, stirring occasionally. This should take around 10 minutes.

6. In a small bowl, mix 1 tablespoon of cornstarch with 1/4 cup of water until it forms a paste.

7. Once the onions are caramelized, add the cornstarch mixture to the pan and stir well.

8. Pour in 1 cup of water and bring the gravy to a simmer, stirring constantly.

9. Let the gravy simmer for 5-10 minutes, or until it thickens to your desired consistency.

10. Season the gravy with salt and pepper to taste.

11. Once the sausages are cooked, remove them from the oven and let them rest for a few minutes. This will allow the juices to redistribute and make the sausages more tender.

12. Serve the Cumberland sausages with the onion gravy on top. You can also serve them with your choice of sides, such as mashed potatoes or roasted vegetables.
