Sausages with a French Onion Sauce

I don’t have very much to say about this recipe. It’s quite simple, but perfect on a foggy, drawn in night and so I thought I would share it with you. The only thing that is remotely ‘complicated’ is the onion sauce, the recipe for which is below.

Cook your sausages (I made beef sausages for the first time for this and they were absolutely delicious and worked really well with the rich onion) in your preferred manner. I’m personally not very fond of fried sausages, so tend to do mine in the oven (25 minutes at 180°C) or air fryer (10-15 minutes at 180°C). Boil new potatoes until tender. Serve with peas and carrots and the sauce.

French Onion Sauce

  • 3 medium onions
  • 1 oz butter
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 2 cloves garlic (minced)
  • ½ tsp dried thyme
  • 2 large ladel-fuls of beef stock
  • 1 tbsp Grumblebee Honey Spiced Rum (optional)


  1. Peel and thinly slice the onions.
  2. Cook onions over medium heat with the oil. When the onions are softened, add in the butter and continue cooking, stirring regularly.
  3. When the onions have browned off, add the garlic and cook for another minute.
  4. Add the beef stock and thyme and cook over a low-medium heat until the mixture has reduced to the desire consistency/amount (about half).
  5. Season to taste with any extra salt and Grumblebee Honey Spiced Rum.
  6. Serve over the sausages.
