Marmite, some people love it, some hate it. But, when it's stirred through a dish, just a teaspoon of Marmite brings out the rich, intense flavours. Anyone bored of Marmite on toast (are you mad?) might fancy trying these alternatives recipes. You can even use it to add another level of flavour to your favourite BBQ dishes. So if you love Marmite, get experimental with that little jar.

Serves 3

Ready in 45 minutes

200g pork sausages
400g potatoes, peeled and quartered
1/2 tbsp vegetable oil
1 onion, sliced
150ml beef stock
1tsp Marmite
1/2tsp cornflour
1tsp mustard, we used Dijon
Pinch black pepper
Drop of skimmed milk for mashing
15g butter/marg for mashing

1. Bring a pan of salted water to the boil and add the potatoes for 15-20 minutes until tender. Drain and keep warm.

2. Cook the sausages until golden brown and cooked through.

3. Meanwhile, heat the oil, add the onion and cook for about 5-10 minutes, stirring occasionally until soft and beginning to turn golden brown. Add the stock and the Marmite and simmer for about 5 minutes until the liquid has reduced by half.

4. Mix the cornflour with a little water to make a smooth paste and stir into the onion mixture. Bring back to the boil and simmer gently for 1 minute.

5. Add the mustard to the drained potatoes and mash with the milk and butter.

6. Spoon half of the mash onto each serving plate and serve with the sausages and red onion gravy. Serve with a mix of vegetables.
