It Was a Bangers and Mash Sort of Night (with Pictures)
There are times when I wish that I had lived abroad in the United Kingdom or Europe. I had such a desire to do so, but it was not "in the cards" for me.
But having done a little bit of traveling, and also having met friends from all over the world, I have an appreciation for many foods.
Tonight was a sausage and mash night, and I had some sausages that I purchased from the shop, "Proper British Bacon." I wrote about it in the story, "Proper Meat Market Sells Proper British Bacon and then Some. "
First, I assembled a few simple ingredients--Lincolnshire Sausage, an onion, mushrooms and a gravy packet (from England). I would have liked to have some sweet, red bell pepper, but this will have to do. Then I browned the sausages in a tablespoon of oil.
I added the large onion, sliced, to the pan to soften the onions. Then, I added a half-pound sliced mushrooms, and placed the sausages and vegetables in an ovenproof casserole. (This is where I would add sliced red bell pepper.)
Packet was mixed with a cup of water and added over the sausage and vegetables, stirring gently to mix; then I covered the casserole and put it in the oven at 350F degrees for one hour.
Serving it up on my plate with pan-roasted Brussels sprouts and mashed potatoes, using the sauce as a gravy for my potatoes, it hit the spot tonight. Thankfully, I have plenty left over for a couple more meals.
