Method

  1. Preheat oven to 140°C.
  2. Melt butter in a pan. Add sausages and cook over low heat until golden. Transfer to a baking tray in the oven until needed.
  3. Place onions in the pan and cook over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, for about 10 minutes until very soft and golden brown.
  4. Meanwhile, to make aligot, place potatoes in a large pan of water and boil until tender. Drain, then return to pan and cover with a tea towel to absorb steam and dry out.
  5. Add herbs and flour to onion and cook until flour starts to turn light golden. Add wine and simmer for a few minutes, then add stock and mustard. Cook for 1-2 minutes. Return sausages to pan, increase heat to medium and cook in gravy for 5 minutes.
  6. Use an electric beater to beat potatoes, cheese, butter and cream in a bowl until rich and creamy. Add parmesan and season with salt and pepper. Beat until smooth. Divide between plates, add sausages and serve with onion gravy.
