It is amazing how one of natures angriest vegetables can becomes so sweet. You just have to coax the sweetness out. You could call this slow food, it does take a while to cook the onions down to a sweet, sticky base for this sauce. But you will be glad you did. It goes really well with Toad in the Hole and of course with sausages.
You can find a good recipe for onion gravy here at The Telegraph.
Round 2, A Pauper’s Dinner
Leftovers. I rolled a few more sausages out, reheated the onion gravy and, well I don’t like reheated mashed potatoes so much. However, left over mashed potatoes make great potato cakes. Heat up the mashed potatoes a little, add a pinch of salt, just enough flour (whole wheat in this case) to make a soft “dough,” form into cakes and slow fry in butter. Oh and we need a veg, so I cooked up some cabbage in milk. Taste=great, cost=very little.
