Scottish recipes - Bangers and Mash with Bisto Gravy

First up Tartan followers, have you noticed anything new around here?

This little Blog is all grown up

I purchased my domain name and no longer have the "blogspot"


and how did I celebrate?

Well, with Bangers and Mash of course (wink)

Bangers and mash

Bangers and Mash, the perfect British Sausages (Bangers) and Mashed Potatoes with a delicious well know and well used British beef gravy product called Bisto

This, for me, is a home from home dinner. Comfort food at its best

To make your Bangers and Mash

You will need

1 pk of 6 British Beef Sausages
2 Large Onions
Bisto Gravy Granules (Made according to packet) (or any other gravy you prefer if you cant find Bisto)

British beef sausages

for the mash
Bag of Potatoes
2 tbsp Butter
Salt to taste
Splash of Milk or cream

  • Take your sausages and grill them (broil for my USA readers) on high heat, turning occasionally until evenly cooked and browned
Grill the sausages

  • Meanwhile make your Mash. Peel and chop potatoes into chunks and place in pot with water and salt, bring to boil then turn down to a rolling simmer until potatoes are tender and soft. Drain the water, add some butter, salt and milk/cream and mash until smooth and fluffy


  • Place the cooked sausages in a large saucepan

  • Make the Beef Bisto Gravy, according to package and add to the sausages

  • Cut onions in half or quarters depending on size (you want the onions in big chunks) and add to the sausages and gravy

Scottish Word of the Day - Hoose - House
(What Hoose do you stay in?)


  1. Delish - I wish I could get those sausages here. I'll have to dream for now.

  2. I've done this with fresh beef brats from the butcher and beef bouillon granules as a base for the gravy (I'm in the midwest). Turned out wonderfully. Peas or Brussels sprouts are also a great accompaniment.


I love comments, big and small, so go on, leave me some, you know you want to
