About Bangers and Smashed Potatoes

We've reinvented bangers and mash with this mouth-watering all-in-one tray bake.

  • 10m prep 
  • 50m cook 
  • 4 servings


  • 2 large brown onions, halved, sliced
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 2 tsp balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tsp brown sugar
  • 8 baby potatoes
  • 8 beef sausages
  • 8 brown flat mushrooms
  • 150g green beans, trimmed
  • Thyme sprigs, to serve


Step 1

Preheat oven to 200°C. Line a large baking tray with baking paper. Arrange the onion on the lined tray. Drizzle with oil and vinegar and sprinkle with sugar. Season and toss evenly to combine. Spread out in an even layer. Bake, stirring halfway through cooking, for 15 mins or until onion is light golden.

Step 2

Meanwhile, place the potatoes in a large saucepan and cover with water. Bring to the boil. Cook for 10-15 mins or until the potatoes are just tender. Drain well.

Step 3

Use a wooden spoon to push onion to the edges of tray. Place potatoes on the tray and use a clean tea towel to squash.

Step 4

Add the sausages to the potatoes on the tray and spray with olive oil spray. Bake, turning the sausages and potatoes halfway through cooking, for 25 mins. Add mushrooms and beans. Bake for 10 mins or until the sausages are cooked through. Sprinkle with thyme to serve.
