Bangers and Mash

Bangers and Mash

Bangers and Mash is a perfect example of pub-grub, because it is easy to make, quick to prepare and yet in my opinion perfect comfort food. It is really just a another name for sausage and potatoes and is a typical English/Irish dish. Bangers and mash consists of mashed potatoes and sausage which can be made from either beef or pork.

Traditionally it is served with a think onion gravy. I wanted to revive this old favorite somewhat and made a few delicious changes.
I flavored the mash with some creamed horseradish and chopped chives and in stead of the traditional onion gravy, I made a onion relish and I topped it off with some parsnip crisps!!! All in all winner with the family!

You can use a sausage of your choice, just make sure it is a good one and the mash is pretty straight forward, just add the 2 mentioned ingredients with a knob of butter when mashing the potatoes!

Bangers and Mash

Bangers and Mash

Thick onion chutney/relish

4 large onions – halved and sliced
olive oil
sugar – about 1 tbsp
balsamic vinegar
2 tbsp red wine
fresh thyme

Heat the oil in the pan and saute the onions until it starts to soften. Add the sugar and let the onions caramelize. Add the wine and vinegar and let the onions cook until it becomes syruppy and delicious. Add the salt and pepper to taste. Serve with the bangers and mash or keep in a glass jar in the fridge to enjoy with sandwiches and salads!

    I've never, ever seen bangers and mash look this gorgeous. As Peter M said so well, "Comfort food goes posh." I can't think of a better way to say it.

    One of my blogging friends had a St. Patrick's Day event and I made Doyle's Dublin Coddle which is very similar to Bangers and Mash. It was great! Your's looks fantastic with the onion relish and parsnip crisps! I love fried parsnips on salads too.

    How nice that your daughter is spending more time with you the the kitchen πŸ™‚

    Bangers and mash are the BEST (although I'd struggle to do without the onion gravy…!). I often flavour my mash with wholegrain mustard. Love your pic!
