My family really enjoyed this traditional St. Patrick’s Day dish of cooked sausages (bangers) and mashed potatoes (mash) served with onion gravy and made in minutes right in our Instant Pot. #bangersandmash #instantpot #StPatricksDay
Instant Pot Bangers and Mash with Onion Gravy
- 2 lbs. of your favorite uncooked sausages, we used Swedish potato sausages
- Oil, for browning sausage
- 1 yello onion, thinly sliced
- 1/2 cup chicken broth
- cornstarch slurry, to thicken
- 8 Yukon Gold potatoes, unpeeled
- 1/2 cup whipping cream
- 2-3 cloves garlic, crushed
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1-2 tsp. prepared horseradish
- 1 cup sour cream
- milk, as needed
Using the saute setting on the Instant Pot, brown off sausages in a bit of oil; remove and reserve. Add the sliced onions to the sausage drippings in pot and cook for 1 minute, then add broth to deglaze the pot.
Return the reserved sausages to the Instant Pot; add the lid and lock it into place. Use the manual setting to choose high pressure for 5 minutes, bringing the Instant Pot to full pressure . When the timer sounds, use a natural release for 10 minutes, then a quick release to remove any remaining pressure from the Instant Pot.
Meanwhile, make the mash by boiling potatoes in broth until fork-tender. (If using an Instant Pot to cook potatoes, cook on high pressure setting for 5 minutes with a quick release.) While potatoes are cooking, simmer the cream and garlic in a small saucepan over medium heat for 5 minutes.
Mash the cooked potatoes, then add warm cream and garlic, egg, horseradish and sour cream, adding milk as needed to make the potatoes creamy and fluffy.
Remove the cooked sausages from the Instant Pot; then add a bit of slurry to liquids remaining in the pot using the saute setting. Whisk the gravy to prevent lumps, stirring until the gravy is nicely thickened.
Serve the Bangers and Mash in bowls, topped with warm onion gravy.
