Madhouse recipe : Banger and Squeak !

This was a total see-what's-in-the-fridge-and-needs-using-up meal but it actually worked very well. The completely made-up name comes from a cross between bangers & mash and bubble & squeak ! 

Banger and Squeak

ingredients :
drizzle of olive oil
1 pack of smoked Toulouse sausages
2 onions
3 mushrooms
1/2 Chinese cabbage (normal cabbage would be fine too)

Heat the oil in a pan and gently fry the chopped sausages and onions for 10 minutes.

Add the mushrooms and continue cooking for a few minutes.

Add the cabbage and stir-fry for a few minutes. (Add a couple of spoonfuls of water if necessary.) 

If you want to go down the bubble and squeak route, you could add some leftover mashed potato to the pan at this point. I was serving mine with the remains of the gratin dauphinois though, so I didn't bother with extra potatoes.


  1. Looks yummy, I love the name of it :)

  2. Sounds very tasty, and I'm all for using up odds and ends from the fridge - hate food waste.

  3. Wish I could be good at picking things out of the fridge and making a dish out of it.

    1. It can be a bit hit and miss but a tin of tomatoes and some spices usually help salvage the ones that don't work so well !!
