Peppery sausages and mash


I love bangers and mash. It’s one of the few non-spicy recipes I can eat over and over again. This recipe, however, is a spicy twist just in case you wanted something hotter. I’ve also combined it with a mixed mash of potatoes and sweet potatoes, using up what I had left. 




Serves 2

  • 250g potato
  • 250g sweet potato
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • Ground nutmeg
  • 4 sausages
  • 1 tsp hot pepper sauce
  • Juice of 1/4 lime
  • 2 tsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp thyme
  • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
  • 2 tsp tomato puree

Preheat oven to 220C. Put the potatoes in a pan of salted water and boil for 20 minutes.

Guess which sausages are mine

Put sausages on a baking sheet on a tray. Bake for 10 minutes. In a bowl mix the pepper sauce, lime juice, sugar, thyme, garlic and puree and stir with 2 tsp water. After 10 minutes brush the sausages with the spice mix and bake for another 10 minutes.


Drain the potatoes and mash with the oil and add nutmeg to taste. Serve with the sausages and some peas.
