Add the onion to the frypan and cook until soft then add the flour and cook for 2 minutes while stirring. Add the stock, vegetables and stir until combined, now add the sauces and stir, and now add the sliced sausages. Simmer for 20 minutes on low.

Bring a saucepan of water and the potatoes to the boil and cook until tender. Heat some milk in a microwave safe jug.
