St. Patrick’s Day has always been a holiday that quickly arrives and passes for me. It whirls in with a whoosh of green t-shirts and drunken pubs (which I never go to) and leaves as fast as the Leprechaun that eludes as. But even though we might turn our milk green at breakfast, avoid the drunken parades and carry on with our day, I can’t go without some of that Irish fare. Sure, I may not be one for corned beef and cabbage, but Irish cream, soda bread, and bangers and mash are pretty tasty. This recipe has been updated, dashed with the South, and made into a one (okay, maybe two) pot wonder for your family!
Just what is a banger, you might ask? It’s a sausage! And mash? Simply mashed potatoes. A pretty basic meal overall, but add some southern spice, a favorite skillet and you’ve got something! After steaming your potato pieces in a microwaveable bowl, everything goes into the skillet and simmers together. The leftovers are absolutely fabulous!
