This easy sausage Bake is just sensational. Comfort food at it's absolute best.
Peel the potatoes and cut into medium chunks and boil in salted water until tender. leave for a few mins to drain and then mash with a potato masher or ricer together with the cream and butter. Season with salt to taste.
Meanwhile in a largish frying pan heat the olive oil to a high temp and brown off all the sausages. Then place in your baking dish. Add the sliced mushrooms. This is just to put colour on them they will cook fully in the oven.
Turn the heat down and add the sliced onions. Let them cook for ten minutes or until brown and caramelising. Boil the kettle and make the beef stock with 500 mls of water and the two stock cubes/jellies. Preheat the oven to 180 C/350 F/Gas Mark 4
Sprinkle the flour over the onions and mix in well. When you can see no more white flour in the onions then add the beef stock and allow to simmer. As the gravy begins to simmer then mix well as it thickens. Let it blip away for a few mins.
Top with the mash. Smooth it over very roughly. Place on a baking tray to catch the gravy drips.
Bake for about 45 minutes and it emerges golden and bubbling.
