“Bangers and mash gets its name because sausages used to burst (or bang) while cooking, due to rusk (dried bread) being added to the meat. Mash, meanwhile, refers to the mashed potatoes. This recipe was a staple at our home in Dublin at Halloween. It is a very cheap, very traditional supper, and one that truly requires good sausage. Try to use a good quality sausage or perhaps even a bratwurst. Please note that this is a very thin gravy, as is traditional. It will still be very liquidy.” - by wsf
Original recipe yields 4 servings
- Preheat oven to 200 degrees F (95 degrees C).
- Cook the sausage links in a skillet over medium-low heat until browned on all sides, about 5 minutes per side; transfer to an oven-safe dish and move to the preheated oven to keep warm.
- Place potatoes into a saucepan over medium heat, cover with water, and boil gently until potatoes are tender, 10 to 15 minutes. Drain and allow to steam dry for a minute or two. Mix in 1/4 cup of butter, milk, dry mustard, salt, and black pepper; mash until fluffy and smooth. Set aside.
- Melt 1 tablespoon butter in a skillet over medium-high heat; cook the onions until translucent and just starting to brown, about 8 minutes. Pour in the beef broth and red wine; boil the mixture down to about half its volume, about 10 minutes. Season with salt and black pepper. To serve, place a sausage onto a serving plate with about 1/2 cup of mashed potatoes. Pour the onion gravy over the sausage and potatoes.

"Amazingly delicious! My family raved about this meal that is full of flavor from every angle. I used Johnsonville Brats and 3 lbs. red potatoes unpeeled. Although the gravy is thin it is very rich and..." See more soaks into the potatoes in a delightful way!"
"This was my first time having Bangers & Mash. It wasn't bad, especially the gravy, but a little too time consuming as written for a simple meal. I would suggest getting the potatoes on the stove first..." See more, then brown the sausage, put it in the oven, sautee the onions and start reducing the gravy before mashing the potatoes. Also, it took me at least half an hour to boil the gravy down by half, probably because of the humidity here in Florida. I turned on the A/C to draw some of the moisture out of the air and it seemed to help speed things up. The potatoes seemed a little dry as is, so I tossed in another splash of milk. Adding a splash of beef broth to the potatoes might not be bad, either."
"My husband wanted a traditional Irish meal for St Patrick's day, and said this was the best version of Bangers and Mash he has had! Great flavor, and the sauce was awesome..a little on the thin side s..." See moreo I added some cornstarch to it to help thicken it up just a bit. Will definately be serving this on more than just St Patrick's day"
