Serve it up with delicious mashed potatoes, a few greens and of course the onion marmalade for a really satisfying lunch or dinner.
- 8 Cumberland sausages
- 1 tbsp goose fat or sunflower oil
- Yorkshire pudding batter
- 50g plain flour
- A pinch of salt,
- 3 medium eggs
- 300ml full-fat milk
- 1 tbsp chopped thyme
- Sea salt and black pepper
- 1 quantity of onion marmalade
Put the sausages in a large roasting tin and place in an oven preheated to 190°C/Gas Mark 5. Cook for about 30 minutes, until browned all over, then remove from the tin.
Turn the oven temperature up to 220°C/425°F/Gas Mark 7. Add the goose fat or oil to the tin and put it back in the oven for about 5 minutes to get really hot. Season the batter well with salt and pepper.
Return the sausages to the tin and pour in the batter. It should be sizzling. Place in the oven and cook for 25 minutes, then reduce the temperature to 190°C/375°F/Gas Mark 5 and cook for 15 minutes longer, until well risen and browned. Serve immediately, with the onion marmalade.
