What to eat with bangers/ bramley apple bangers? [moved from UK/Ireland]
Hi. Just moved to the UK, and purchased bangers at Tescos, a pack of original British bangers and a pack of bramley apple bangers.
Question: What do you eat with bangers? HOW do you eat bangers?
I mean, my first impulse would be to fry the bangers and eat them with mustard. But bramley apple bangers? Should I eat them with, I don't know, maple syrup?
What should I make with bangers? (Mash, I know, I know...but the issue is, solely bangers with mash sounds awfully boring...)
So, requests for any side-dishes or any other sauces (types of gravy? HP sauce?)
I am on a pumpkin gnocchi kick. Had them with chicken/apple sausages here the other day. Pumpkin gnocchi with toasted hazelnuts, garlic, sage, and parmesan.
It would have to be sausages with mash and gravy for me. Pork and apple is a lovely combo, although I've not tried the Tesco one. Personally, I wouldn't add anything sweet to them as they caramelise quite a bit when you cook them. Just lots of lovely onion gravy.
You'll find helpful recipes (for UK things) at the BBC website and also Delicious Magazine's, not to mention tons that will come up if you Google.
Besides Toad in the Hole, I like to grill my sausages and have a nice recipe that uses roasted peppers that come in oil and a mixture goes over tagliatelle or other pasta. (The sausages are cut up into pieces.) It's here:
Serve with jacket potatoes and lots of butter for a basic-but-classic.
Otherwise, sausages make a lovely casserole: you can cook them in red wine with mushrooms and onions, or in beef consomme with pancetta and lentils, or chop them up with butter beans, bacon and onion and stir into passata with some worcestershire sauce, oregano and dry mustard powder.
I hope you enjoy them, let us know!
