Weight lost recipe: no 7

French-style sausage casserole

454g packet of extra-lean sausages
garlic low-fat spray
1 onion, finely sliced
20g (3/4 oz) gravy granules
1 teaspoon white wine vinegar
1 dessert spoon whole-grain mustard
220ml (8 fl oz) brown ale

Preheat the oven to gas mark 5/190c/375f
Put the sausages on a baking tray and place in the preheated oven. Fry the onions off in a non-stick frying pan with the cooking spray until starting to brown.
Meanwhile make the gravy granules and boiling water, make 300ml (1/2 pt) gravy. To this add the vinegar and mustard and top up with the beer.
Transfer the cooked onions to a casserole dish and top with the part-baked sausages. Add the gravy mixture, reduce the oven to 3/170c/325f.
Cover the casserole and cook for 3/4 hour, remove the cover, spoon the gravy over the sausages and cook for a further 15 minutes.

We have this with steamed vegetables and mashed potatoes.

To be honest even if you don't like mustard, (which I cannot stand) this recipe is lovely, especially with the weather at the moment, it's delicious.
