Recipe type: main
Serves: 4-6
  • 6 raw link pork sausages
  • 5-6 potatoes, peeled and roughly chopped
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • ¼ head savoy cabbage, thinly sliced
  • ¼ cup cream or milk
  • Salt and pepper
  1. Place the sausages in a sauté pan over medium-low heat. That's it. No frills. Turn the sausages every 10-15 minutes until all four sides are cooked through. It will take about 40 minutes total for them to be finished.
  2. While the sausages are cooking, place the potatoes in a large pot and cover with water. Add a teaspoon or so of salt. Bring to a boil over high heat and boil until tender, about 20-25 minutes.
  3. Drain the potatoes and set aside. In the same pot the potatoes boiled in, add the butter over medium heat. Stir in the garlic once the butter has melted, and then add in the cabbage. Sauté for 5 minutes.
  4. Add the potatoes back in, mash with enough cream or milk to make them smooth, and season with salt and pepper.
  5. Serve scoops of potatoes topped with bangers for an easy meal.
Traditional bangers aren't a spicy pork sausage, but a more mellow variety flavored with sage, thyme, nutmeg, and black pepper. It makes leftover sausage easy to add to your breakfast by slicing and tossing in a pan to heat and brown. You could also use a beef Cumberland sausage in place of pork or a non-flavored pork sausage.
