Sausages with tasty bubble and squeak mash

This healthy, balanced meal is the perfect family - and budget - friendly meal.

  • 8 low-fat sausages
  • 2 red onions (finely sliced)
  • spray oil
  • 1 beef stock cube
  • 300ml boiling water
  • 1 tsp cranberry sauce or redcurrant jelly

For the bubble and squeak mash:

  • 450g potatoes (peeled and cut into chunks)
  • 1 onion (finely chopped)
  • 2 cloves garlic (crushed)
  • spray oil
  • 175g cooked left-over vegetables (e.g. shredded cabbage, chopped sprouts)
  • 85ml skimmed milk
  1. Cook the sausages under a preheated hot grill, turning them frequently, until they are cooked through and appetizingly brown all over. Keep warm.
  2. While the sausages are cooking, boil the potatoes in a large pan of lightly salted water until tender.
  3. Drain and return the potatoes to the warm pan.
  4. At the same time, cook the onion and garlic slowly in a pan that has been sprayed lightly with oil until they are really tender.
  5. Stir in the leftover vegetables.
  6. Mash the potatoes with the milk and beat with a fork until smooth.
  7. Add the cooked vegetable mixture and plenty of black pepper. Keep warm.
  8. For the gravy, cook the red onions gently in a pan sprayed with oil until softened.
  9. Crumble in the stock cube and stir well, then add the boiling water and cranberry sauce.
  10. Let it bubble away until it reduces and thickens.
  11. Serve the mash with sausages and drizzle the gravy on top.
