Onion Gravy – From Scratch

This week I’m going to share with you how to make one of my favourite go to recipes to pump some extra flavour into your meals.  This red onion gravy is the traditional accompaniment to sausage and mash, but you can also mix it up and use it in place of a smooth gravy on your Sunday roast – it will do wonders for your pork chops and roast potatoes.

This onion gravy is a perfect accompaniment to bangers and mash, toad in the hole or a Sunday roast. Made from scratch and full of flavour. Vegetarian.

This simple onion gravy has a wonderful depth of favour.  It uses just a handful of ingredients, most of which will already be sitting in your kitchen cupboards and doesn’t require much attention during the cook, meaning you can keep enjoying that glass of red wine!

I often use a vegetable stock in onion gravy, so it’s perfect if you are catering for vegetarian and meat eaters, but you can also use beef or chicken stock if that’s what you have to hand. I always opt for red onions, rather than white, as they give a moorish subtle sweetness.

This is a foolproof onion gravy recipe that is packed full of delicious flavour and I’m sure it will become your go to accompaniment for your bangers and mash!

    I have a confession… I could eat gravy with EVERYTHING it’s one of my weaknesses! And adding onions to them? I might just grab a spoon… this looks amazing!
