Sausages with Mash and Onion Gravy is one of my favourite recipes. Thick onion gravy with soft mash potato and perfectly cooked Cumberland Sausages is in my top 5 recipes. This main dish is ideal all year round and is filling, comforting and incredibly tasty. I serve with frozen peas for additional colour, flavour and texture.
