Sausages in red wine and onion gravy over mashed potatoes. The ultimate comfort food, British style. —Jas
What You'll Need
Cumberland or other good quality pork sausage
chicken or beef bouillon
fresh or dried basil
fresh or dried parsley
fresh or dried rosemary
salt & pepper to taste
Put peeled and diced potatoes in a large pot and cover with cold water. Add salt and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer until tender, about 20 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a large sauté pan brown the sausages in oil on all sides over medium-high heat. Remove sausages to a plate and keep warm. Add the onions to the pan and cook until soft.
Add garlic and sauté for about 30 seconds. Stir in flour, cook for 1 minute. Add the chicken bouillon, wine, basil, parsley and rosemary. Cook until wine has reduced to a glaze over the onions, about 10 minutes. Return the sausages to the pan and simmer for about 5 more minutes. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
Drain the potatoes and mash with milk, butter and mustard. Transfer the bangers and mash to a serving dish and dig in!!! I mixed a cup of red wine with one cup of Coca Cola to make my favorite drink Bambus, as we call it in Bosnia. Yum! Try it - even the non wine lovers will like it.
