Bangers_and_mash_1For those on this side of the pond, the name of this simple (yet delicious) meal may be a tad bit confusing. Not to worry however; this dish isn’t made with any bizarre ingredients that you’ve never heard of. On the contrary, “bangers” are your standard Cumberland sausage, whereas “mash” is simply a slang term for mashed potatoes.

Quickly catching popularity, bangers and mash have become a pub staple over the years, making it no surprise that the dish has gained equal favoritism on the go brit! menu. What may be surprising however is the fact that one of the key ingredients isn’t featured in the famous name.

That’s right, some may say that a plate of bangers and mash just isn’t complete without a little bit of English brown sauce. Described by the Huffington Post as a “darkly spiced, slightly syrupy, savory flavor bomb,” some may even go as far as to say that it is the glue that holds the dish together.

Traditionally served with a side of mushy peas, if you have yet to try this tasty dish, now’s the time! It’s the perfect meal to keep you warm this winter season.
