# Place 4 loaf tins or equivalent into the oven with a good drizzle of oil, leave until smoking.
# Pour in some batter mix up to about an inch of the tin, place in the oven for a couple of minutes.
# Remove the tins from the oven and place 2-3 sausages in the centre of each tin and return to the oven for 20-25 mins.
# Place the sliced onion in a pan with a small amount of oil and sauté until soft with the addition of salt and pepper, rosemary/thyme and garlic if desired.
