… back in the big smoke for a meeting or two and I think we’re now very sadly well and truly past the summer here in the UK. We’ve still experiencing some warm sunny days but I think those lusty heatwave days of June and July are behind us as there is most definitely a chill in the evening air… and yes it is more than possible that we’ll recover from this and have a glorious Indian summer in September but let’s not kid ourselves here… we had it good and now it’s over. Let’s pack up the bikini’s and the skimpy shorts, pull out the duvets and the warm baggy jumpers and get on with Autumn like good boys and girls. I for one am glad all the sweating, sucking-in and salad eating is over and The Viking and I can finally pull on the elasticated pantaloons and eat proper food…
sausage and caramelised onion focaccia
the fine people of Edinburgh may be up for a laugh at this time of the year but they’re not giggling so much when it comes to sausages which they take very seriously… particularly the incredible Crombies who very kindly sent me a selection of their infinitely superior sausages… and yes I thought, like you’re probably thinking, how can one sausage really be so much better than any other but believe me, these are particularly good sausages. Old-fashioned in the good kind of way – they split beautifully down the middle when baked – yet firm enough to sit nicely on a fork or make it into a sandwich. Most of the sausages they sent me didn’t get any further than breakfast but I saved the Pork with Caramelised Onion and the Piggy Black (made with black pudding) for these focaccia bread pizza’s…
… being the good boy I am I also made a veggie version for The Viking using Quorn sausages…

I could just pluck that off the screen and eat it.

This is brilliant and beautiful and the egg is perfect. Here in the USA we are also having chilly evenings and shorter days. The heat waves are gone, I hope, and I too look forward to sweaters and jackets. This may just be the most perfect dish ever!

That looks incredibly yummy. Such a deceptively simple list of ingredients – what's the betting I can still make a complete mess of it!

Your post gave me several smiles 🙂 Although I'll be going kicking and screaming into autumn, this would be a perfect way to ease the pain! It looks so delicious.

Oh yes, I fear we are already there, brambles in the hedges and we even had a touch of frost earlier this week – eek! Love your banger focaccia and those piggy-black sausages sound divine.

I don't want to be a good girl and accept autumn……. I hate being cold! But if it means eating sausage, onion AND focaccia…….. all in one go……. I might just be able to cope!

Oh wow, your photos look like cookbook photos. I would dig into this focaccia with no problem. Crispy onions, chewy bread, sausage. Delicious!
Lovely flavor combination. I'd struggle to get a second slice before my hubby devoured it. 😉
