Cumberland Sausages & Mustard Mash with a Pancetta and Red Onion Gravy



Putting people down does not make you a powerful and strong person. It makes you a bully, a coward and eventually alone in life.”Tess Calomino

I made this tasty dish the other day.

So as people wouldn’t be alarmed at the amount of calories, I made this for other people in the house too.

Usually I make extra anyway and keep some for myself for an extra meal the next day but I made this for the rest of the house as well. The caloric info is for three Servings, but I only put the caloric intake of the sausages for one person so that people wouldn’t wonder why the calories were ridiculously high 😂👏.

1) Pre heat the oven to Gas Mark 8/200C

3) Meanwhile, bring the sweet potato to the boil in a saucepan of salted boiling water and then simmer on a very low heat for approximately 20 minutes.

4) In addition, place the broccoli heads in a medium sized saucepan of salted boiling water and bring to the boil. Remove from the heat with the lid on and then just simmer for a few minutes when there is only a few minutes of cooking left on the sausages.

5) For the gravy, fry the finely diced red onion and the cloves of garlic together in half a tablespoon of olive oil for a few minutes until golden brown.

6) Add the Pancetta and continue to cook for a few more minutes.

7) Add a tablespoon of red wine and continue simmering for a few minutes.

8) Mix 2 tbsp beef oxo granules with water and then add to the saucepan with the wine, Pancetta, onion and garlic.

9) Drain the Potatoes using a colander and then using the whole grain mustard and a little butter, mash the sweet potatoes.

10) Drain the broccoli in the same colander.

11) Spoon the sweet potato mash in to the centre of a large plate and decorate the edges of the mash with the broccoli.

12) Neatly arrange the Sausages on top of the mashed sweet potato mountain and then garnish with the Onion and Pancetta flavoured beef gravy.
