8 premium pork Wicks Manor sausages

For the mash

900g washed and peeled Maris Piper potatoes
100ml milk
100g unsalted butter, cubed
salt and pepper to season

For the onion gravy

4 white onions
2 sprigs of fresh sage, finely sliced
1 cube of unsaltedbutter
225ml white wine
250ml stock of your choice ( beef, chicken or vegetable)
1 tbsp vegetable oil


1.) Cook the potatoes in a large pan of lightly salted water and bring over a medium heat for around 20 minutes or until soft.

2.) Drain the potatoes in a colander then put back them back in to the pan and mash well.

3.) When the potatoes are smooth, add in the butter and milk and season.

5.) Meanwhile, place the sausages under the grill for 15 minutes, turning, until cooked and piping hot.

For the onion gravy:
