Autumn In A Bowl

Autumn In A Bowl 2

Sausages, sweet potato mash and onion gravy, a perfect dish to welcome Autumn.

Fry sausages slowly in butter until sticky and lightly browned, then add a large sliced onion to the pan and saute until soft and golden. Turn up the heat, add a tablespoon of flour, stir and and cook for a minute or so, then add some marsala to sizzle away. Add a dried herb like oregano and a little beef stock. Leave to simmer and thicken whilst you mash some peeled, cubed and boiled sweet potato with butter.

Serve in a bowl and curl up on the sofa while the Autumn leaves dance in the wind outside.

    Hi Julia!
    First of all that sounds delicious!I have never tried a dish like that before, but I think I will welcome autumn this year with a hearty warm dish such as yours. I like to experiment and I’ll try anything once. I’ll write back to let you know how it turns out. Thanks for the idea!

    Hi Bola!

    This isn’t my usual sausage and mash recipe – I use a Nigel Slater one – I’ll type it out for you.

    Alan – I know you want it too so I’ll send it to you.
