  • cover with water and bring to boil, leave to simmer for about until tender, drain water and keep warm in oven with lid on,(or make them just before mashing).

    Thank you for this recipe, I think I have been waiting for it all of my life. Bacon and sausage are the only forms of pork I will eat, and I've wanted a good Bangers and Mash recipe for almost forever. I also love Toad in the Hole. Thanks

    I followed this recipe with the exception of the peas. My son does not like peas so I used 2 fresh zuchinis and saute them with the onions. My whole family loved this dish. I tried to save the drippings from the sausage to cook the vegys but I did not get any. The sausages were difficult to cook thorough on the skillet, so after browning the outside, I sliced them up about .5 - 1 inch thick and saute them. Thank you for a wonderful dish. This will definitely be part of our regular dinner line-up.

    This is a great dish. I didn't add the oil. Just used the fat from the sausage, then added mushrooms. Mushrooms act as small sponges, so they soaked up what little oil was left. Pick them out if your on a diet, like my DH. Awesome recipe Perfect, Thanks!

I lived in new zealand for 8 years of my life, now england for the past 8 years. I go to boarding school on the east coast of england. I have friends from all over the world, my best friend is canadian and also lived in france, so her mum and her for that fact, are mean chefs, boy do i like going to her house. I recently found out I am intollerant to wheat so have found it difficult to give up such easy foods to find and now have to search harder. I also have 2 leaks in my heart, one on a valve going in and one on a valve going out. A top carteoligist from London told me as long as I don't get pregnant for a while (I should hope not, I'm only 15) or eat fatty foods, my heart would do allright. He said he didn't want to operate on me yet, beacause there is a operation coming in the next 10 years which is lazer, so he wants me to wait, but he said I was fit and healthy and had no need to worry, yet....... when i was younger i dreamed of being a choreographer or a marine biolagist, then i wanted to work for vouge magazine, then get married and move to barbados and raise a family where the only thing that passes anyones lips will be home grown or hand made, a bit ambitious i know, hehe. But now my dream is to be a laywer and help others that really need it, and hopefully move back to my roots and bring up a family there For lent i have given up refined sugars and it is so hard and i am only 3 days into it, i was starving at school, opened my tuk box only to find marshmallows and smarties and a box of cereal, i think cereal is about to become my best friend over the next 6 weeks. LOL EDITED 30TH AUGUST; Last night at 3:30am, my best friend lost her battle to cancer and it has made me realise how important it is to live life to the full and take every opportunity thrown at us. She was a special girl and only 15 - wherever she is now though, she is out of her suffering. I have no doubt that she went straight to heaven. Lord rest your soul. i also have a lot of favourite sayings, here are some of them "shoot for the moon, even if you don't make it, you'll land amoung the stars" "I'm on a seafood diet, see food and eat it" "smiling is infectious, you catch it like the flu, when someone smiled at me today, i started smiling too, i passed around the corner and someone saw me grin, when he smiled i realised, i'd passed it on to him. I thought about that smile, then i realised it's worth, a single smile just like mine could pass around the earth. So if you feel a smile begin, don't leave undetected. Lets start an epedemic quick, and get the world infected!!!"
