IHCC - Bangers and Mash Nigel's Way

Made a typically Brit meal with Nigel Slater last evening ... well, sort of. Certainly a plate of bangers and mash is typical pub fare in the UK. Nigel gives it a bit of a spin, though. I was intrigued! So, it was carrot mash and bangers browned and baked with a lemon honey mustard glaze. Added a chunk of pumpernickel bread on the side and a good glass of wine (no beer for me, but perhaps for SB!) and we had a tasty 'stick to the ribs' supper!

Nigel Slater’s Lemon Mustard Sausages with Carrot Mash


4 – 6 pork sausages
2 tbsp. grain mustard
1 tbsp. Dijon mustard
3 tbsp. honey
2 tbsp. lemon juice

Carrot Mash:

400 g. carrots, peeled and chopped
a gob of butter
a bit of heavy cream perhaps?

Making the Dish:

  1. Preheat the oven to 400° F.
  2. Brown the sausages on either side in a very hot fry pan. 
  3. Transfer them to a casserole that allows them to lay in one layer.
  4. Mix the mustards, honey, lemon juice in a small bowl and pour over top the sausages.
  5. Bake the sausages for 25 – 30 minutes, turning the sausages every once in a while and spooning the sauce over top to make a glossy glaze.
  6. Meanwhile, steam the carrots until tender.
  7. Turn the carrots into a bowl and mash with a gob of butter and perhaps a small bit of heavy cream. Please use a hand masher so you keep some form to the mash ... mash, not baby food.
  8. Plop the carrot mash on a plate and top with a couple sausages. Serve with a chunk of pumpernickel bread and a glass of spicy white wine (like a Gewurtztraminer or dry Reisling) or beer.

The I Heart Cooking Club has asked its members to pull out the stops and make a dish fit for the Brits ... I can hardly wait to see just what gets served up! Head over to see the fare!


  1. Looks and sounds like a mighty tasty meal to me!

  2. ooooh, YES!!!... bangers and mash... glorious... and don't you wish Nigel (and me) was there with you to dine? Love baking sausages, I think they're all-round a better taste. Lovely!

  3. That is one of my favorite meals, bangers and mash. We have to be careful how often we have it though, don't want to get tired of it. Great choice for Fit for a Brit!

  4. I love Nigel's little twists on traditional dishes and that carrot mash is so bright and colorful. Perfect weeknight comfort food. ;-)

  5. The mention of pork sausages already make me drool...!!! This looks like the perfect meal and would make anyone smile at meal time! Looks really delicious!

  6. What a delicious looking meal! I often serve maple or honey mustard with sausages but love the idea of glazing the sausages with it while they roast.

  7. Oh, this sounds like comfort food!

  8. I almost made the lemon mustard sausage recipe because the lemon and honey glaze sounded so good. At first, I thought maybe this was sweet potato mash, but carrot mash is even more intriguing/surprising.

    The first time I ever baked sausages was when we cooked with Jamie Oliver. This method produced great results--nice browning.

  9. Great take on bangers & mash. I'm loving the lemony mustard glaze for the sausage, and your carrot mash looks a whole lot better than the carrot & parsnip puree my mother used to make when we were kids!

  10. I think the carrot mash is such a brilliant idea by Slater, definitely a good twist for the usual mash. I think this makes such a nice meal :)
