Bangers and Mash is a popular Anglo-Irish dish made with sausages, mashed potatoes and onions. This delicious recipe is served in pubs as well as at home and is quick and easy to make. It is therefore the ideal meal if you want to have an Irish dining experience without too much time pressure!
The Bangers and Mash belong to the family of what is called “Pub Grub”, dishes that are mostly served in Irish Pubs.
This is one of the main dishes served in most Pubs (along with Irish Stew and Fish and Chips). This dish costs on average 7 to 8€ per person, and is traditionally served on a base of 3 sausages, and a creamy mashed potato to taste. Don’t be surprised if this dish is very high in fat and potatoes: the Irish are fond of rich dishes that go down quickly, and their love of potatoes is centuries old!
Serve it with a good pint of stout (brown Irish beer), and then you can enjoy this simple but delicious dish!
