With St. Patricks day coming up this Monday we wanted to share an easy, 30 minute recipe that anyone can whip up to help celebrate their inner irish!
I’m sure most of you have tried banger’s and mashed potatoes but this was my first time incorporating mustard and gravy to the mix. It’s not rocket science, but the combination was perfection and my husband seemed to enjoy it so much he went for seconds!
I’m a huge fan of Trader Joe’s which is where I picked up all my ingredients. They have an amazing selection of fresh, organic and healthy products that you can’t find anywhere else and everyone is super friendly and helpful.
What you will need..
2 lbs. of potatoes
Salt & pepper
1/2 stick of butter
1/2 cup of whole milk
4 oz. of creme fraiche
2 tsp. of dijon mustard
2 lbs. of chicken sausage
Parsley to garnish
Place the potatoes in a large saucepan with enough water to cover along with 1 tablespoon of salt. Bring to a boil and simmer for 20-25 minutes. Drain the potatoes and return to the saucepan. Add the butter, milk and creme fraiche and beat the potatoes in the pan with a handheld mixer until smooth. Mix in the dijon mustard and 1 tablespoon of salt and pepper.
Meanwhile cook sausages in a skillet for 5 minutes on each side.
If you opt for gravy…strongly encouraged
1 clove garlic, chopped
2 tbs. flour
1 bottle Guinness
2 tbs. mustard
1 tbs. worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon brown sugar
Saute the garlic until fragrant, about a minute. Add 4oz beef broth,
sprinkle in the flour and let it cook for a few minutes. Add the Guinness, mustard, worcestershire sauce and brown sugar and simmer for 10 minutes.
If you know me at all, I’m not the most amazing chef. So an easy recipe like this one really gives me an ego boost. Try it out and let us know what you think!
Happy Saint Patrick’s Day!!!
