Bangers and mash, also known as sausages and mash, is a quintessential British meal… but you may be wondering how sausages ended up with the nickname “bangers.”
8 large good-quality sausages
1 tbsp oil
250g/9oz Savoy cabbage
4 spring onions (scallions)
5 tbsp milk
50g/1¾oz unsalted butter
salt and pepper
2. Meanwhile, cook the sausages. Pierce the sausages with a fork then heat the oil in a large frying pan over a medium heat and fry the sausages gently for 10-12 minutes or until golden-brown and cooked through.
3. Separate the cabbage leaves, cut out the stalks and discard, then finely slice. Bring a separate pan of water to the boil, add the cabbage and cook for 3-4 minutes until tender. Drain thoroughly. Finely slice the spring onions.
4. Drain the potatoes, return them to the pan and add the milk and butter. Using a potato masher, mash until smooth and creamy. You may want to add a little bit more, or less, milk and butter, according to taste.
5. Stir the spring onion and cabbage into the mash and season with salt and pepper. Serve the cabbage mash topped with the cooked sausages.
