Sweet glazed sausages and onions cooked in crisp golden batter are a winning combination and a great family favourite. This recipe adds a new twist to the traditional recipe.

400g pack  Pork and Fresh Leek Sausages
2 medium onions, cut into thick wedges
150ml  Pure Apple Juice
Pinch of dried sage
2 tbsp olive oil
2 medium eggs, plus 1 egg yolk
100g plain flour
225ml milk

Preheat the oven to 220*C.
Fry the sausages in a non-stick frying pan for 4-5 minutes. Stir in the onion wedges and fry for a further 5-7 minutes until the sausages are golden brown.

Pour the apple juice into the pan, add the dried sage and bring to the boil. Let the liquid bubble for 5-7 minutes until it reduces to a sticky glaze.

Pour the oil into a medium-sized roasting tin and place it in the oven for 3-4 minutes to heat gradually. Meanwhile, whisk together all the remaining ingredients to make a smooth batter.

Using a pair of scissors, cut each sausage in half. When the oil is hot and smoking, carefully add the sausages and onion mixture, then immediately add the batter. Return to the oven for 25-30 minutes, or until the batter is well-risen and golden brown. Serve with gravy, and some steamed Savoy cabbage.
