Traditional bangers and mash is a British dish consisting of sausages and potatoes. The sausages got the nickname of banger because during WWI they were full of water and when placed on a frying they would pop and bang as the sausage heated. This very simple recipe can be made completely at home or store bought items can be used to speed the cooking process.

In a pan boil potatoes in some salted water until they are fork tender. Drain potatoes and return to pot. Add a decent dollop of butter and a splash of milk for creaminess. Using a masher, crush all of the potatoes until they are the desired creaminess. As potatoes are heating, throw the sausages in a pan and fry them until fully cooked.
If looking for a more intense flavor a wine gravy will go well with the dish.
