Bangers & Mash

Go to the delicatessen… pick up some kolbász… get recommended some krainers and buy them… make bangers & mash.

That’s basically what happened. So here we go, sausages & potatoes, or in Brit-language, bangers & mash. (´・ω・`)

Ingredients (per person)
350-450g potatoes*
20g-30g butter**
1/4 cup of milk
1 tsp garlic powder
pinch of salt to boil potatoes
1 or 2 sausages***
oil or lard to cook sausages
salt/pepper to taste

Half a yield of onion gravy from 1 onion.
1 large onion
200ml beef stock
100ml red wine
1 tbsp all-purpose flour
1 tsp dijon mustard (I sometimes use Worcestershire sauce instead because dijon really discolours it)
salt/pepper to taste
butter and oil to cook onions (I use peanut oil)

Steps
1. Make onion gravy.
2. Make mashed potatoes; cook chopped potato chunks (I usually quarter my potatoes since I leave the skin on) in boiling water until they’re fork tender, about 20-25 minutes. Mash potatoes with potato masher, add in your butter, mash it in, then switch to a whisk and whip in your milk and spices.
(Refer to Chef John’s tutorial for some tips and tricks on how to make the perfect mashed potatoes.)
3. Cook the sausages with whatever oil you like to use, even if they’re precooked/smoked. I like to add a bit of fat and colour and heat to my sausage before putting them in my mouth.
4. Cook until they’re nice and brown and heated all the way through (especially if you’re using raw sausages). Krainers are smoked so I only had to cook them briefly to fatten them up a little.
5. To serve, portion out your mashed potatoes on a plate, top it with the sausage(s), and pour on your onion gravy. Ennnnjoyyyyy….

Notes:
*depending on the size of the person (¬‿¬)
**depending on how much potato you use, and also how buttery you like your mashed potatoes, just keep in mind that you’re making bangers & mash, not creamy mash.
***depending on the size of the– oh , I probably shouldn’t say that… (*ノ・ω・)
