Barbeque Sausage Scone
- 450g (1lb) self raising flour
- Salt to taste
- 175g (6 oz) butter
- 225g (8 oz) strong cheddar cheese, grated
- Milk to mix
- 2 medium red onions, peeled and sliced
- 20 British sausages, medium width
- 2 tbsp English ready-made mustard
- 4 tbsp tomato ketchup
- 1 tbsp piquant brown sauce
Line the large AGA roasting tin with Bake-O-Glide.
Sieve the flour and salt into a bowl and rub in the butter, or use a food processor. Add two-thirds of the cheese and mix to a soft dough with the milk. Press this mixture evenly into the tin.
Cover the onion with water and boil for a minute or two, then drain off the liquid.
Arrange the sausages in lines over the scone dough. Stir the mustard, ketchup and brown sauce together and spread over the sausages. Sprinkle over the blanched onion and then the remaining cheese.
