November 6, 2009, Newsletter Issue #258: Cooking with Dad: Bangers and Mash

Tip of the Week

If you’re looking for a quick dinner then Bangers and Mash is a viable solution. This meal falls into the 30 minute meals a category as well as a kid favorite. I substitute all animal proteins for Vegan alternatives and the meal is just as good. Once you feed this English favorite to the kiddies they’ll love it forever. Enjoy.
Bangers and Mash


2 pounds potatoes
8 links Italian sausage (or Vegan Italian sausage)
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 large onion
2 tablespoons flour
4 cups chicken stock (or vegetable stock)
4 tablespoons cream (or soy milk)
2 ounces butter (or Vegan butter substitute)
Salt and pepper
1 teaspoon parsley

Peel and dice potatoes then place in a saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring to a boil, add salt and simmer for 20 minutes. Meanwhile, prick sausages with a fork, heat a skillet and brown the sausage in 1 tablespoon olive oil. Slice the onion. Remove the sausage to a plate and add the onion to the pan. Cook onions until soft, then add 2 tablespoons flour, cook for 1 minute. Add the chicken stock and return the sausage to the pan, cooking it through for about 15 to 20 minutes.
Drain the potatoes and mash with a potato masher. Add the cream, butter and season with salt, pepper and parsley.
Plate the potatoes and add the sausage on top.
Bon Appetite.
