30 ‘Til 30 Recipe 24

If you were to ask a group of people to name the most English dinner, half of them would probably say “Bangers and mash”. Yep, sausages and mashed potatoes are a British favourite and a lot of the time it is served with onion gravy.

I love gravy, and when it comes to beef gravy, regular gravy granules are just fine, but when it comes to onion gravy it has to be made from scratch, and with red onion. I have tried to make onion gravy with both red onion and yellow onion but it just does not taste as good with yellow onions, it just has to be red.

Start by spraying a large frying pan with frylight, and add your onions and cook for 2 minutes on a medium heat. Add the sugar and cook for another minute until the onions begin to caramelise.


Add the flour and stir the onions to coat. Cook for another 2 minutes.



Add the stock and bring to the boil whilst stirring continuously.


Once boiling, turn down the heat to low and simmer for around 20 minutes or until gravy has thickened. Serve immediately.
