Bangers and Mash
Recipe by Just the Tip / Inspired by Ina Garten
Here’s what I used:
- 1 pound pork sausage (love the provolone and garlic from market basket)
- 1 1/2 pounds Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled and chopped
- kosher salt
- 3 tbsp unsalted butter, diced
- 3 oz 0% plain greek yogurt
- 1/3 cup half and half or milk
- 1 1/2 tsp dijon mustard
- 1 1/2 tsp whole-grain or coarse mustard
- 1/2 tsp dry mustard
- 1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
- Fresh parsley, for garnish
Here’s what I did:
- Preheat the oven to 425.
- Place a baking rack on a sheet pan and arrange the sausages in one layer on the baking rack.
- Roast for 18 to 20 minutes, until the sausages are just cooked through.
- Meanwhile, place the potatoes in a large saucepan with a big pinch of salt enough water to cover the potatoes. Bring to a boil and simmer for 15-20 minutes, until the potatoes are fork tender. Drain the potatoes in a colander and return them to the saucepan. Add the butter, greek yogurt, milk, dijon mustard, whole-grain mustard, dry mustard, 2 tsp salt, and the pepper and beat the potatoes in the pan with a handheld mixer on low speed until smooth and creamy.
- To serve, mound a generous portion of potatoes on a dinner plate and top with sausages. Sprinkle with fresh chopped parsley and serve.
