The Posh Sausage Sandwich Recipe

The Posh Sausage Sandwich recipe was discovered when we were too close to pay day for a big shop and all we had left were some lean Musclefood sausages.

But what a little find this sausage sandwich recipe was! The sarnie is quick to prepare and cook, with very little ingredients too. We did it indoors but I bet it’s even better knocked up at a BBQ.

To create the posh sausage sandwich for two you’ll need:

  • 6 Sausages
  • 4 Pitta Breads/Flatbreads
  • Bag of Fresh Rocket
  • 150ml Mayonnaise
  • 1 Tsp Paprika
  • 2 Tbsp of Wholegrain Mustard
  • 3 Red Onions, sliced
  • 2 Tbsp of Brown Sugar
  • 2 Tbsp of Balsamic Vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp of Olive Oil

Preheat your oven to 180 whilst you prepare your onions and mix your peppery mayo. Slice the onions finely and pop to one side. Mix your mayonnaise with the 2tbsps of mustard and the paprike in a jar or bowl and then pop in the fridge to chill until you’re ready!


Stick your sausages on a foil covered tray and into the oven they go for around 20-30 minutes. You can of course, fry or BBQ your sausages too.


Now it’s time to make the caramelised onions. Would you believe this was the first time I’d attempted them? It’s too easy, and compliments the mustard mayonnaise perfectly.


Heat up your olive oil in a pan and once hot chuck those sliced onions in! Slowly cook for a good 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally not to catch any on the bottom of your pan. Once they’re lovely and golden add in your sugar and balsamic vinegar.


Slowly cook the onions for a further 10 minutes until sticky and caramelised. Smells cracking, doesn’t it?


Remove from the heat and pop to one side, as your sausages should be about ready and sizzling too.

I chopped my sausages up into chunks, but you could always slice them down the middle or whack them in your sandwich whole – I’ll leave that up to you.

In your already hot oven, stick your pitta breads or flatbreads in for 30 seconds each side until warm.


Now, it’s all about the assembly. On your warm pittas add a good dollop of that heated, peppery mayonnaise, layer with a sprinkling of rocket and top with your sausages. To finish, add a covering of the gooey onions.


A kick from the mustard, soothed by those sweet caramelised onions and a good bit of juicy meat. A proper bit of posh grub, made from minimal ingredients. Which classic British numbers have you fancied up?
