Nina is such an explorer and fixer creator of recipes. She did a post on sausages and said, “strangers emailed me to tell me that they look at sausage in a whole different light. Hard to imagine, I just took it for granted that everyone knows how versatile sausage can be………
Sausage and Mash – a meal that features quite often in our household, but I try to give it a different twist every time. Sometimes it is straight forward Bangers and Mash, sometimes I make a tomato base sauce to serve with the mash, but this time I wanted to feature a piece of fresh horseradish that I picked up at our local grocery store. The packet of sausages from Rudi’s Sausage Deli that I also used for my previous post, was perfect for the recipe I had in mind. The sausages are so spicy that I thought it needed strong flavours to carry them. What better way to up the flavor in mashed potatoes than to add some grated horseradish.to it! I needed a mild sweetness to counteract all this spice and the apple and sweet onion relish worked really well. So here goes!!!”
Spicy Sausage with Horseradish Mash , Apple and Onion
8 spicy pork sausages
a little cooking oil
2 large onions – sliced
2 apples – peeled and sliced
For the Mash
5 large potatoes
3tbs melted butter
a little milk
2 tbsp grated horseradish
Heat the oil in a skillet and fry the sausages until golden brown on all sides. Keep aside. In the same pan, fry the onions in a little oil and after about 2 minutes, add the apple slices. Gently move the onions and apple about in the pan. When ready to serve, season with salt, pepper and sugar. Return the sausages to the pan and heat through. Serve on the mash.
