Bangers and Mash

I must admit, I had a lot of trouble bringing myself to post this blog. I mean… Bangers and mash, really? It is a meal a lot of people take for granted. But on the failsafe diet, gravy is not really something we can indulge in, one because of the amines content and two because all prepared ones you can pick up from the supermarket contain ingredients we can’t have.

I love winter time for comfort foods like casseroles and especially soups. Unfortunately my 3 kids don’t share my sentiments for soup! One of the comfort foods I remember growing up with was sausages in gravy with mashed potato smothered in gravy, so I have found a way to let my kids enjoy this occasionally too.   I have said before that I like make things the easy way, and I also have trouble throwing away things I know that I can use again. So this recipe I use the juices I froze straight away after making the Caramelised Lamb Chops,  or from any casserole that has sauce left over. The only thing you will need to be aware of is that using the juices will bring some amines into the dish, but doing it this way, I have found my kids seem to cope ok. This is my son’s favourite winter warmer meal.

The sausages I use are from a local butcher that are Gluten Free and preservative free. For a full list of butchers that supply failsafe sausages check out this Link.


8-10 sausages (or enough to feed your family)

1 serve of frozen juice from a casserol or Caramelised Lamb Chops, defrosted.

1 – 2 teaspoons of cornflour mixed with a little water

1 serve of mashed potato (I used the recipe from the Thermomix EDC)

While potatoes are cooking in the Thermomix, cook sausages in a frying pan until just cooked. remove and slice into bite sized pieces. Place juice into pan and bring to the boil. Add the cornflour mixed with the water and stir to thicken, reduce heat and add the sausages back and stir through the gravy and simmer for a few minutes minutes.

Serve with mashed potato covered in the gravy and sausages with a side of fresh beans.
