What You’ll Need

The Mash
  • 1KG quartered and peeled potatoes
  • 100 grams of butter
  • 250 litres of milk
  • Freshly grated nutmeg
  • Salt
  • Pepper
The Gravy
  • 6 sliced onions
  • 2 tablespoons of flower
  • 2 tablespoons of brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar
  • 500 ml halal beef stock
For sausages
  • Sage leaves
  • 10-12 halal sausages
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil

How To Prepare And Cook

First, you need to make the gravy, so fry up the onions in a frying pan. Keep frying until they are soft. They should feel creamy and taste sweet. This is going to take about twenty minutes.

Once you have done this, you can add the flour before adding the sugar, halal beef stock and vinegar.

Gently simmer the mixture for another twenty minutes and then add some seasoning.

While you are doing this, mix up the mash. Put the potatoes in a pot and cover them with water, bringing them to the boil. The potatoes need to be soft. Add butter and milk to make the mash creamy with the nutmeg for a little extra zing of flavour. Finally, once the potatoes are creamy and smooth make sure that you add seasoning.

The third part of this dish is the halal sausages. You need to preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius. Or, 180 if you’re using a fan oven. While you’re preheating the oven, you can add the halal beef sausages to a dish and lightly drizzle the olive oil over them. This will stop them from sticking. They need to be roasted for thirty minutes until they are beautiful and golden brown.

Serving Suggestions

Once the sausages are cooked through it’s time to serve. You can plate the sausages and mash however you wish. Typically though, you will put the mash on the plate, adding the halal sausages to the top. You can then add as much or as little of the onion gravy as you wish. Served properly, the dish should be piping hot all the way through, and this is all about getting the timing right for each part of the preparation.

Remember, once you have tried this a couple of times, you can test different seasoning options to see which goes well with the sausage and mash. You can even roast the sage leaves with the sausages, allowing them to go crisp. You can also experiment with different sauces though the onion gravy compliments the dish beautifully.

We hope you try this dish for yourself and love the taste of this fantastic halal recipe for sausages and mash.
