bangers-and-mash

Bangers and Mash is a classic British dish that is fairly quick and easy to make. It is also cheap and perfect when you are cooking for a crowd and kids especially loved it. It is a really versatile recipe as you can use different types of sausages and herbs every time, which gives it a different twist.

I have always imagined eating a place of this by the fireplace on a cold stormy night. A pretty vivid imagination for someone who lives in a country where it is mostly sunny throughout the year. Maybe that was me in Paris. Please don’t roll your eyes on me. I mean If you wanna build sandcastles in the air, might as well build a huge 1. If you wanna dream, might as well dream big.

Anyways, for those who are not familiar with “Bangers and mash”, it is basically a dish that is made of mashed potatoes and sausages!
It is usually served with some gravy. An onion gravy in most cases. You can also add a side of baked beans or peas.

The onion gravy was really good.  You can pour it over anything. Steaks, chicken chops, grilled vegetables. Love the endless possibilities!
