Branston Bangers 'N' Mash


Branston Bangers 'N' Mash

This British classic will please the whole family, and works as a quick school-night dinner or a weekend treat.

Serves: 4

8-10 sausages
1 kg potatoes, peeled and quartered
180m milk
A knob of butter
Salt and black pepper, to taste

And don't forget the special ingredient...
2x 410g tins of Branston Baked Beans

Step 1

Place potatoes in a pan with just enough water to cover them. Bring to the boil, then cover with a lid and simmer for 20 minutes or until tender, then drain.

Step 2

While the potatoes are simmering, heat the oil for the sausages in a large frying pan. Add the sausages and fry them over a medium heat for 8-10 minutes, turning now and then, until nicely browned and cooked through.

Step 3

Now put the beans into a pot, and heat through for 5 minutes.

Step 4

Pout a splash of milk over the potatoes and mash until smooth.

Step 5

Season to taste and serve immediately with the beans and sausages.

Try giving it a twist:

- If you like your mash smooth and creamy, use a hand or electric beater to whip it up after mashing.

- Add creme fraiche or cream cheese to your mash to give it a deliciously light and creamy finish. Copped chives also work very nicely in mash.

- If you have access to a local butcher, ask for a variety of sausages. This will add a little colour and variety to your family meal.

- Adding a little sweet potato or parsnip brings additional flavour to the mash, with a nutritional bonus!
