Sausage, Pears and Onions

One of the foods that reminds me so much of baseball games and Boston is "sausage, peppers and onions". Well it's been years since I've lived in Boston and it's not quite baseball season yet, so I decided it was time to make this dish a bit more winter and a bit more London.

The great thing about british pork sausages is that you can find really high quality, lean pork sausages of all different flavors. I'd suggest using either plain sausages or pork and apple sausages for this recipe. Pears are one of the few fruits grown in Britain that can still be found in February and red onions bring a bit of color to this dish

Sausage, Pears and Onions
1 tsp olive oil
6 lean pork sausages
1 red onion chopped into 1/4 moons
2 pears cored and sliced

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C (350 F) In a roasting dish or large frying pan heat the olive oil and fry the sausages until they are brown on each side (about 5-10 minutes) Add the onion and pears to the pan and place the whole pan into the oven for 15 minutes. Remove the pan from the oven and stir the contents of the pan and cook for a further 15 minutes.

Prep time: 5 minutes
Cook time: 35 minutes
