Sausage and Mash Bake

We all love our Bangers and Mash especially with bread and tomato sauce.  Then I spotted this Sausage and Mash Bake and knew this would be good.  It certainly delivered.

Sausages, potatoes, peas and gravy together are delicious.  Easy to dish up too as it is a complete meal.  We had it with buttered bread on the side for wiping up leftover gravy and I think sausages and bread belong together.

The original recipe uses redcurrant jelly however I left that out. 


Sausage and Mash Bake.


Ingredients
1kg potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks - I used Dutch Cream Potatoes
100ml milk
50g butter
Small bunch chives, chopped
5 spring onions, sliced
450g pork sausages
1 brown onion, diced
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
100ml red wine
400ml chicken stock
2½ teaspoons cornflour dissolved in 1 tablespoon cold water
A few sprigs of fresh thyme plus a little for garnishing
1 cup frozen peas



Boil the potatoes until tender.

Heat the milk in the microwave until it is very warm to hot.  

Mash the potatoes with the butter and milk.  Stir through the chives and spring onions.



Preheat the oven to 180°C.

Fry the sausages in a frying pan until lightly browned.  Remove and slice into chunks.  Place the sausages into an oven proof dish (approximately 21 x 21cm).

Without wiping the frying pan cook the onion until starting to brown.  Add the balsamic vinegar and wine.  Bring to the boil.  Add the stock and simmer for 3 minutes.  Stir through the cornflour mixture and a few sprigs of thyme.  Simmer until it starts to thicken.


 
Pour the gravy over the sausages and then add the frozen peas.



Spoon the mashed potato over the top and then scatter a few more sprigs of thyme.

Ready for the oven.

Bake for 25 minutes.



A real comfort food.

  1. I love those kind of meals. The green thyme looks so pretty. It reminds me of Shepherd's Pie.
