First recipe back after being on holiday, and I’m keeping it simple.
But simple doesn’t mean it can’t be delicious.
I have a friend called Abigail. She is one of my very favourite people in the whole wide world. Occasionally we go for lunch and/or cake, and talk about lovely things for an hour or two.
One of my favourite places to go for food with her is The Enterprise in Holborn. Usually I have the fish finger sandwiches (because why wouldn’t I?) but I always see their Merguez, chorizo and red onion marmalade baguette on the menu and think “Mmmm. Next time, I’ll definitely order that”. Next time never comes — their fish finger sarnies really are delicious — so I decided to make a version of it at home instead. But I added cheese, because everything is better with cheese.
Buy one baguette, one pack of sausages and a red onion and you’ve got enough to feed four. Perfect for picnics or lunches or, when served with fries and a salad, a full meal. Delicious.
- 2 red onions
- 8 good quality sausages, either pork or Merguez
- 1 full-sized white baguette
- About 100g chorizo (add more or less to taste)
- Grated extra-mature cheddar
- Slice the red onions and fry in the butter over a medium-low heat for around 15-30 minutes, until soft and delicious
- Whilst the onions are caramelising, grill the sausages under a medium-low heat, turning frequently. Cut the baguette into quarters and split it down the middle
- When the sausages are cooked, put them in the baguettes. Spread over the chorizo and top with the caramelised onions. Sprinkle over the cheese and serve
