Bangers and Mash

IMG_0528 It seemed appropriate to share a recipe like this since tomorrow is St. Patty's day. It may not be that traditional, but it is so good. If you can get a hold of some good Bangers (or any other sausage would work great), then definitely make this tomorrow!

I got mine from Trader Joe's, they always have them in stock around this time and taste great.

Boil some taters, and mash them up with peas, Greek yogurt, butter, salt and pepper. I decided to mash them by hand, I like the texture of them better than using my stand mixer.

While the bangers were cooking, I caramelized some onion. It brought a nice sweetness to the dish.

Cheeky kittens also like caramelized onions.

[recipe title= "Bangers and Mash" servings= "3" time= "About 1 Hour and 30 Minutes"]

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb of Bangers (or another sausage of choice)
  • 5 medium gold potatoes, washed and diced
  • 2 cups frozen peas, thawed and rinsed
  • 1/2 cup Greek yogurt
  • 2 tbsp butter, softened
  • 2 tbsp milk
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 yellow onion, sliced
  • 2 tbsp olive oil

Directions:

  1. Heat a small non-stick pan over medium heat, and add olive oil. Add the onions, and stir to coat with the olive oil. Let them sit for about 4 minutes, before stirring again. Slowly cook down the onions until they are soft and golden brown. Reduce the heat if you feel they are browning too quickly.
  2. In a large stock pot over high heat, add potatoes and fill with water until they are covered. Boil the potatoes until they are soft when pierced with a fork. Drain, return to the pot, and set aside.
  3. While the potatoes and onions are cooking. Begin to cook your bangers over medium heat. Be sure to pierce a few holes in each with a knife. Rotate the bangers a few times while cooking, until completely cooked through.
  4. Add the peas to the potatoes, and mash together. Add the Greek yogurt, milk and butter, and mash to combine. Add salt and pepper to taste, and using a wooden spoon, stir to mix everything completely.
  5. To assemble, layer the mash, a couple of bangers, and caramelized onion!
