Bangers & Mash Recipe

It’s hard to beat a good meal of bangers and mash, especially with homemade onion gravy. It’s easy to make, and is wonderfully comforting. You could serve with green beans, broccoli, carrots or wilted spinach if you’re trying to add more vegetables into the family diet. Or use sweet potatoes for the mash to mix things up a bit.

Serves: 4

Ingredients

For the sausages and onion gravy:
  • 8 sausages

  • 2 onions, sliced

  • 1⁄2 tsp dried mixed herbs

  • 1 tbsp fresh rosemary, chopped
  • 1⁄2 tsp English mustard

  • 600ml beef stock

  • Salt and black pepper

  • 2 tsp butter, at room temperature
  • 2 tsp plain flour
For the mash:
  • 900g potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 50g butter

  • 100ml milk

Instructions

  1.  Preheat the oven to 200 ̊C/180 ̊C fan/gas mark 6.

  2.  Place the sausages in a roasting tin. Cook in the oven for 10-15 minutes, turning halfway through, until nicely browned.
  3.  Add the onions to the roasting tin. Mix the dried herbs, rosemary, mustard, stock and some salt and pepper together in a bowl and pour over the sausages and onions. Return to the oven for 15 minutes or until the sausages are thoroughly cooked in the onion gravy.
  4.  Meanwhile, cook the potatoes in a pan of salted boiling water until soft. Drain well and then mash.

  5.  Microwave the butter and milk until the butter has just melted. Add to the mashed potato and mix until smooth. Season with salt and black pepper.
  6.  To finish the onion gravy, mix the softened butter and our together to form a paste. Remove the sausages from the roasting tin, set aside and cover with foil to keep warm.

  7.  Place the roasting tin onto the hob over a medium-high heat. Add the flour and butter mixture and whisk until combined. Continue to whisk over the heat for 3-4 minutes or until the gravy has thickened.
  8.  Serve the sausages and mash with the onion gravy spooned over.
