Irish Bangers & Champ

Irish Bangers & Champ

“Bangers and mash” may be the famed dish, but the champ here—TJ’s Frozen Mashed Potatoes with scallions and butter—gives the dish a decidedly Irish turn.

Serves: 3 Prep Time: 5 Minutes Cooking Time: 25 Minutes






Prepare the Bangers: In a large skillet or frying pan over medium heat, heat 3 tablespoons oil. Add bangers and brown on all sides, about 10 minutes. Add water and cook until bangers until internal temperature reaches 165⩝F. Remove bangers from pan and set aside.

Prepare the Gravy: Add remaining oil, onion, and garlic to skillet and cook over medium heat until onions are translucent. Add flour and mix thoroughly. Add one cup of broth and stir until a thick paste is formed. Pour in remaining beef broth, one cup at a time, mixing thoroughly between additions. Continue heating until gravy has thickened (about 5 minutes). Turn heat to low and cover pan until ready to serve.

Prepare the Champ: Heat frozen mashed potatoes in microwave or on the stovetop according to package directions. Once heated through, stir in butter and scallions. To serve, place a large scoop of champ on a plate, top with bangers and a generous ladleful of gravy.
