Bangers and mash with awesome onion gravy

07 Nov

Oh I had the best onion gravy with my bangers and mash last night, it was awesome.  And even better, there wasn’t a gravy granule in sight!!!!!

I got the recipe from here, but tweaked it to make it more slimming world friendly and it worked out at 3 1/2 syns for 2 servings.  It was gloriously oniony and beefy but it was completely vegetarian, or so I was lead to believe on the website and it was worth the 2 syns that I gave it to be safe!


  • 1 large onion (sliced into rings).
  • 1 clove of garlic (Finely chopped
  • 1 level tbsp of plain flour – 3 1/2 syns
  • 350ml of stock (boiling water poured over 1 veg stock cubes)
  • 1 level tsp of Marmite
  • 2 tsp of soy sauce
  • 1 tsp of balsamic vinegar
  • 1 pinch of decent mixed herbs (my addition)
  • Ground black pepper to taste


  • Heat the frylight in a pot over a low heat and add the onion slices.
  • After five minutes add the garlic.
  • Sautee until the onions are soft and transparent.
  • Add the flour and stir in well. Let the flour get a bit nutty.
  • Add the stock gradually, stirring constantly. Then add the Marmite, soy sauce, balsamic vinegar,  mixed herbs and black pepper.
  • Bring the mixture to the boil and simmer very gently for 10 – 15 minutes. Stir every 5 minutes until the gravy thickens and the flavours blend.

So I had it with M&S Extra Lean Pork Sausages and I have to say they are yummy.  I can be very fussy when it comes to sausages incase I get a grizzly bit but these were lovely and at only 1/2 a syn each totally worth it.  Better than any other extra lean sausages I have had before and not a grain of rice in sight, bleurch!

I also had mashed potato’s which I couldn’t finish and loads of petit pois to go with it.  Yummy yummy get in my tummy.
