Bangers and Mash


It wouldn't be St. Patrick's Day without some green food. So here is my contribution to the cause. Bangers and Mash to the rescue! Simple, easy, and delicious, they're ideal for St. Patty's Day. The sausages are sauteed and topped with the most delicious onion gravy. And of course, the side of the Mash is made green by using my Healthy Green Food Coloring made out of spinach. The combination of flavors is so right for something so unassuming. Give this a try, and you might love it so much that it might replace this year's corned beef on your table.


Ingredients for Bangers and Mash:


Bangers:

1 - 19 ounce pack Irish sausage or 1 pound Bangers or Bratwurst

1 tablespoon olive oil


Mash:

3 pounds Yukon gold potatoes, peeled and cut into equal-sized pieces

3 tablespoons butter, melted

3/4 cup milk

5 tablespoons Healthy Green Food Coloring, Click HERE for the recipe

kosher salt

black pepper


Onion Gravy:

1 large onion, peeled, halved, and sliced

1 tablespoon flour

2 cups beef broth

kosher salt

pepper


Time-Saving Tips: The potatoes can be prepped and left covered in cold water for a few hours before cooking. The onions can also be sliced earlier in the day.


Let's see what we need.

We're ready to cook.


Place the potatoes in a pot of cold water with a 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Bring to a boil and then reduce to a simmer. Cook until the vegetable is fork-tender. Drain and then either mash the potatoes or put through a ricer. Add the milk and melted butter. Then add 5 five tablespoons of Healthy Green Food Coloring and combine well. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside.


Heat oil in a non-stick pan and add the sausage and brown all over. Transfer the sausages to a plate.


Add the onions to the same pan and season with salt and pepper. Saute over medium heat until light brown and caramelized.


Add the flour to the onions and cook for a couple of minutes. Pour in the beef broth and simmer until gravy thickens.



It's ready! Bangers and Mash looks amazing and tastes awesome. Just place a scoop of potatoes on a plate, then a sausage or two and top with gravy. This is a meal the whole family will love. It's full of flavor and the green mash is fun for kids. Give it a try and I know you will love it.


Enjoy!
