Why are Sausages also known as Bangers, especially in Britain when referring to Bangers & Mash?
Meat was heavily rationed during WWI & WWII so butchers started adding all kinds of dubious ingredients to the ground meat to make it stretch; from breadcrumbs to sawdust with the addition of water!
We all know that water and oil just ain't a good mix so the sausages would often explode with a BIG BANG during cooking!
Bangers & Mash is British comfort food at its best, and here I've fused it with an American breakfast favourite all the way from Boston, Massachusetts called Boston Baked Beans & Sausages.
I've broken all the rules and served Budget Boston Baked Beans Bangers & Mash for dinnertime with Sweetcorn on the cob; and this certainly did not break the bank, a real budget meal!
A tongue twister the name certainly is though;)
My Pork Sausages fortunately sizzled and did not explode during grilling, telling me that it's been stuffed with good ingredients; no sawdust and water!
Baked Beans, sweet Baby Onions, topped with Bacon bits, Garlicky Basil & Tomato Relish, fresh Rosemary and Thyme; this was absolutely finger-licking good!
