how to make it

Start by making onion gravy

  1. Melt the oil and butter in a large saucepan over a low heat. Add onions and cover with a lid. Cook slowly for 10 minutes or until onions are soft.
  2. Add sugar and balsamic vinegar to the onions and stir well. Cover with the lid and continue cooking for an additional 5 minutes.
  3. Add the skillet and boil gently for 5 minutes.
  4. In a heatproof bowl or bowl, mix cornstarch/flour with cold water to a thin paste. Pour a little of the hot broth into the starch mixture and mix well. Pour the starch mixture back into the broth, raise the heat to high and boil for 10 minutes or until the broth becomes slightly thickened. Keep warm until ready to serve

Potato cooking

  1. Meanwhile, start the mashed potatoes by boiling the potatoes in lightly salted water until soft. Drain, and heat until ready to mash.
  2. While the potatoes are cooking, cook the sausage.
