Bangers and Mash (Sausages and Mashed Potatoes)

  • 5 sausages
  • 4-6 large potatoes, peeled and quartered
  • dash sea salt
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 tbsp margarine
  • dash nutmeg
Gravy for bangers
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 2 onions, thinly sliced
  • 1 tbsp flour
  • 1 tbsp dijon mustard
  • 1/2 cup red wine
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • dash Worcestershire sauce
  • salt

  1. Grill or cook sausages according to directions or bake in oven at 350-degrees for 30 minutes, turning halfway.
For mash
  1. Boil potatoes until soft.
  2. Drain water and add salt, milk, margarine and nutmeg and mash with a fork or potato masher until smooth.
Note: do not use a food processor to mash the potatoes, it turns the potatoes into an inedible paste.

For gravy for bangers
  1. In a deep pan, heat oil on medium and add onions.
  2. Continue to fry onions until they begin to brown.
  3. Sprinkle flour on onions, stir, then add mustard, red wine, chicken, Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper.

  1. This looks great. Bangers and mash stays a big favourite of mine. I have never added nutmeg to mash, I will give that a try the next time I make mash.

  2. The nutmeg caught me off guard as well when I discovered it in a couple of recipes, but it was nice.

  3. OMG!! I haven't had these in years. I used to date a British guy years ago who took me to a pub and introduced me to these foods. Great post!

  4. @Kathy: and nothing is stopping you from making a butter chicken sausages with cardamom mash (hey, I like that idea). Interested in fusion?

  5. I just saw this Dan, funny as bangers and mash is on my "need to make asap" list. I had a wonderful bangers and mash at a pub in Victoria, BC back in May and I still can't stop thinking about it. I'm especially craving it now that the cooler weather has arrived. Great comfort food!

  6. @Brenda: tell me the pub was "The Bard and the Banker" (the only pub I've ever visited in Victoria)

    Meredith and I were there on our honeymoon (the last stop of an Alaskan cruise), and the pub food was outstanding, the decor was beautiful and the live band played our song.
