Method

  1. Cook the potatoes in boiling, salted water for 15 mins until tender. Meanwhile, heat a non-stick frying pan and add the sausages. Cook over a medium heat for 15-20 mins, turning occasionally, until cooked through. Remove from the pan and keep warm.
  2. Add a knob of the butter and the onion to the pan, then cook for 15-20 mins until soft. Stir in the flour, then gradually add the stock, stirring to make a sauce. Simmer for 2 mins, then pour into a jug and keep warm.
  3. Cook the apples in half the remaining butter for 5-10 mins until softened. Drain the potatoes and mash well with the rest of the butter and the milk. Fold in the apple, then serve with the sausages and onion gravy.

Still very good, but this time I added parsnip to the mash.

Lovely twist on a classic, just as comforting but not as heavy.
I used a bramley apple which takes longer to cook but worth it. Might need to make more gravy in future as everyone wanted more :-)

Never tried apple in mash before but it added a delightful flavour to it. Works well with the Cumberland sausage and the gravy thickens nicely. A simple, filling meal.

Add a pinch of ground nutmeg to the potatoes as you mash them.

Tasty and very easy. Only niggle is that it took quite a long time to prepare. Never thought of adding apples to mash - will definitely use this idea again! Replaced onions, which we don't like, with sweet pepper

The apple mash is a great idea. Sour apples are better as they give a lovely burst of flavour to the potato mash. I also chopped some onions and cooked these along with the apple chunks to stir into the mash and it worked really well. Yum!

The gravy in this recipe is very good and easy to make. I also added a spoon of grainy mustard which was lovely with the sausages.
