Sausage & Onion Pie

This is a great weeknight dish, you can use leftover cooked sausages & mashed potato if you happen to have them. Cooling the filling & mash before constructing the pie is important to stop the mash sinking into the filling too much so it's worth doing.

I keep a few packets of instant mash in my store cupboard which is perfect for this pie!

  • 1 pack sausages of your choice
  • 1 onion, halved & sliced
  • 500ml beef stock
  • 1 tbsp flour
  • salt & pepper
  • approx 600g mashed potato

Cook the sausages however you prefer (I cook them in the oven to keep the hob free)

Set aside.

Heat about 1 tbsp oil in a large frying pan & cook the onion until soft.

Add the flour & stir for about 1 minute.

Gradually add the stock stirring in between until you have a smooth sauce & all the stock has been used.

Season to taste with salt & pepper.

Cut the sausages into 4 & add to the onion gravy. Stir & allow to simmer for a few minutes.

Remove from the heat & allow to cool.

Pre-heat the oven to 180 Fan/200C/Gas 6

Transfer the sausages & gravy to an ovenproof dish.

Top with the mash & smooth with the back of a spoon.
