Bangers and Mash for lunch or dinner with mustard.
MMM for breakfeast!!!!!! Put an egg on it!
Well for me Bangers and Mash is some serious comfort food. For me this is great comfort food, yep meat and potatoes. This is a standard for English or Irish pub grub, that can be made with generally any kind of sausage or bratwurst but typically with a mild flavored pork sausage. Funny enough this product of World War I got its name from its ability to explode with a loud bang during cooking. This cheaply made, but hardy meal served a greater part of the working class for lunch and dinner, mostly due to the fact that the Bangers were a ration from the war.
I made these Bangers and Mash with a mild Italian chicken sausage mostly because most everything I eat these days goes directly to my waste line. This is a simple dish made with herbs, sausage, onions, potatoes and sometimes wine, just different strokes for different folks. I would consider this a not the traditional way and not its normal preparation, but I feel the way I make it this way is mighty tasty and compared well to the Scottish pub down the street, but this is my take and it may be a little different than the real thing, but its really tasty!!! I can eat this no matter what time of the day breakfast, lunch or dinner, put an egg on it.
