Bangers and Mash with Onion Gravy

There’s a reason why every pub in town has bangers and mash on their menu, it’s because it’s super tasty! Bangers and mash with onion gravy is a fantastic winter meal, it’s quick to make, it’s easy to make, and, best of all, do you know anyone who doesn’t love mashed potato and gravy? It’s one of life’s ultimate comfort foods and it’s really easy to make when you’re on a budget.


Prep: 5 minutes

Cook: 25 minutes

Serves: 4



  • 8 thin sausages (sliced or whole)
  • 2 onions, sliced
  • 2 cups water
  • 2-3 tbs gravy powder
  • 1 tbs oil, for frying
  • 750 g mashed potatoes
  • 1 cup cooked peas



  1. In a large saucepan, heat the oil to a medium heat and add the onions. Cook for 5 minutes until the onions have softened.
  2. Add the sausages and cook until browned. Add the water and simmer for 15 minutes until the sausages are cooked through.
  3. Strain the water from the sausages into a bowl and stir in the gravy powder.
  4. Return the water/gravy to the pan and bring to the boil for 2 minutes. Then reduce heat and simmer until gravy is the desired consistency.
  5. Serve over mashed potatoes with peas on the side.


Note: The reason I say to strain the water into a bowl before you add the gravy powder is because I’ve had poor experiences when I’ve added the gravy straight to the sausage mixture. It clumps and sticks to the sausages and onion. It’s best to stir it into the water only.
