Bangers and Mash is almost the ultimate comfort food, rich, warming and satisfying.

40min cooking.
Serves 4

16 x sausages of your choice
1 Tblsp olive oil

For the mash
675g Potatoes
110g Margarine/ butter
30g chives
Sea salt and cracked black pepper

1. Use a potato peeler for the skins, then cut the potatoes into even-sized chunks. Put the potato chunks in a large pan of cold water, sprinkle the salt all over them, put a lid on and boil the potatoes until they are absolutely tender – they should take 15-20 minutes.
2. The way to tell whether they are ready is to pierce them with a skewer in the thickest part: they should not be hard in the centre, and you need to be careful here, because if they are slightly underdone you do get lumps.
3. When the potatoes are cooked, drain off the water, return them to the saucepan and then add the butter, milk and finely chopped chives. then mash until there are no lumps. Taste and, if they require seasoning add salt and pepper
