Extra Easy – 1 syn per serving

Ingredients

  • 8 low fat sausages (2 syns)*
  • 1 red onion, quartered and sliced thinly

*low fat sausages will vary in syn value. The turkey ones I used were 0.5 syns for 2, so be sure to check the syn value of the sausages you use

Method

Remove the casing from the sausages and roughly chop the meat.

Spray a frying pan with some Frylight or Pam spray over a medium high heat.

Add the sausage meat, season with a little black pepper and fry until lightly golden.

Remove from pan and set aside.

Spray pan with a little more Frylight or Pam spray, add the onion and fry on a medium heat, until lightly caramelised, you may need to keep adding a little bit of stock to prevent from sticking.
