Bangers & Mexicana® Extra Hot
Dynamite Mash

Ingredients:

 

  • 8 of your favourite large sausages
  • Oil for greasing
  • 3-4 large garlic cloves
  • 1kg floury potatoes, such as Maris Pipers or King Edwards
  • 80ml whole or semi-skimmed milk
  • 120 g Mexicana® Extra Hot, grated
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

55 MINS

SERVES 4

MEDIUM

Method:

Heat the oven to 200C/180C fan/gas mark 6.

Place the sausages on a greased baking tray and roast in the preheated oven and cook as instructed on the pack.

Wrap the garlic cloves in a little foil and put them on the baking tray with the sausages and bake for 20 minutes.

Peel the potatoes and cut them into evenly sized pieces. Put them in a large pan and cover with cold water and add a good pinch of salt. Simmer gently until tender, about 15 minutes. Once cooked drain and return them to the pan and mash.

After 20 minutes, carefully remove the garlic from the foil parcel and cut off the very root tip with a sharp knife. Then use the knife to squeeze out the soft flesh through the cut end. Use the flat surface of the knife to crush and ensure the garlic flesh is a smooth purée. Add this to the mashed potatoes.

Using a wooden spoon stir in the milk, the grated Mexicana® Extra Hot and season to taste with salt and pepper.

Serve with the cooked sausages.

Tip: Roast some vine tomatoes while the sausages are cooking for a bit of colour.

 

 

 

Drinks pairing: IPA and pale ales

If you want to accentuate the spiciness, go with IPAs and pale ales. Bitter, hoppy flavours and highly carbonated beers amplify spicy foods. Beers with a high alcohol percentage will also increase the warmth that comes from the spiciness of a dish. But lay off the beer until the fireworks have been set off!
