  1. Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. For the onions, heat the oil and butter in a frying pan. Add the onions and soften with some seasoning over a low heat for 15 mins, stirring occasionally. Add the thyme leaves and a good pinch of sugar and cook for a further 5 mins. Pour over the pale ale and gently bubble for 10 mins until reduced and sticky. Stir in the mustard.
  2. Meanwhile, preheat a barbecue or griddle pan. Cook the peppers whole, turning occasionally until the skins are blackened all over (about 15 mins). Put in bowl, cover with clingfilm and leave to cool. Peel away the skins, seed and slice into chunky wedges.
  3. Mix the ketchup and Worcestershire sauce together. Put the sausages in a baking tray and brush with half the sauce, drizzle with oil and cook in the oven for 16-18 mins, or until cooked through, turning every now and basting with the remaining glaze. Transfer the sausages to the barbecue or griddle pan and char to your liking.
  4. Spoon the onions into a shallow tray with the peppers and top with the sausages. Scatter over the remaining thyme leaves to garnish.

Get ahead: Make the onions in advance and reheat before serving.
