Qurator's: Hive Top Chef! | Sausages! - Budget Boston Baked Beans Bangers & Mash

in Qurator4 months ago

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!

Boston Baked Beans Bangers

  • 6 Pork Sausages
  • Handful Baby Onions quartered
  • 2 Tomatoes diced
  • 1-2 cloves Garlic crushed
  • Handful fresh Basil
  • Dried mixed Herbs
  • 1 tsp Brown Sugar
  • 1 tsp Balsamic Vinegar
  • Salt & Pepper
  • 1 can Baked Beans
  • 1-2 rashers Bacon diced
  • Fresh Rosemary & Thyme

Brush sausages with oil, add onions & Rosemary & grill till golden, turning frequently


Sautee Garlic & Tomatoes in a little oil, add Sugar, Herbs, Salt & Pepper.

Spoon Baked Beans in between sausages, top with Tomato Relish, Herbs & Bacon & return to oven to grill Bacon and heat through.

Incredibly delicious and flavoursome Boston Baked Beans Bangers.

Served on creamy mashed Potatoes.

Luckily, bangers are much better today!!

For sure, although some of the very cheap ones still have dubious fillings although I doubt it's ever sawdust;)

I'm not a fan of pork or baked beans - but I believe I would have eaten this meal. Looks so good

I'm not either but what made all the difference, was that tomato relish, baby onions and fresh herbs, really delicious!

That I can have anytime

I really like bangers and mash. Never cooked myself, always eat bangers and mash from my local pub.
With your recepy, I will try to make that tasty dish myself.

A very delicious recipe and a perfect combination.
Have a wonderful day!!! :)

looks pretty tasty!
