Ingredients

  • 2 x 400g packs of British free-range pork sausages
  • 2 onions, sliced into wedges
  • Few fresh thyme sprigs
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 150g polenta
  • 1 tsp caster sugar
  • ½ tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 170g plain flour
  • 1½ tsp baking powder
  • 284ml buttermilk
  • 1 large free-range egg
  • 
25g unsalted butter

Method

  1. Heat the oven to 220°C/200°C fan/gas 7. Put the sausages and onions in a 23cm ovenproof frying pan. Season and add a few fresh thyme sprigs and 1 tbsp olive oil. Bake for 10 minutes.
  2. Mix the polenta, caster sugar, bicarbonate of soda, plain flour and baking powder in a mixing bowl. Add the buttermilk and egg and, using a wooden spoon, beat until smooth.
  3. Remove the sausages and onions from the pan and melt
