Recipe by Sackville
Bangers & Mash is a traditional English dish that's simple, cheap and filling. No need to be excluded from enjoying this treat if you're vegetarian -- just try some of the many meat-free sausages available. In England, Quorn sausages are a favourite of mine but the Linda McCartney brand sausages are also good.

I really enjoyed this, though I have never had Bangers and Mash before. My husband said that the potatoes were right, but that the gravy was not--though it was tasty! Thank you for a good dinner and great directions. (Following your directions, everything came together at exactly the same time!)
- 6 plump sausages
- 4 -6 large potatoes, peeled and quartered
- 1⁄2 cup milk
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 2 onions, finely sliced
- 1 tablespoon cooking oil
- 1 tablespoon flour
- 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
- 1⁄2 glass wine
- 1⁄2 chicken stock cube, dissolved in 300 ml water
- salt and pepper, to taste
Directions See How It's Made
- Grill or fry the sausages.
- The healthiest way is to grill them in the oven at 350 F or 180 C for 20-30 minutes.
- Meanwhile, boil the potatoes until tender.
- Drain potatoes and mash with milk, butter, salt and nutmeg until smooth.
- For the gravy, heat oil in a frying pan and sauté onions until nicely browned.
- Stir in the flour and then the mustard, followed by the wine. A few seconds later add the stock and allow to thicken.
- Pile the mash onto a plate, followed by the sausages and lovely spoonfuls of the gravy.
