Bangers and Mash is the familiar term for Sausage and Mash, a favorite British food. The name bangers is believed to come from the habit of sausages bursting in the pan with a bang if cooked too quickly. Bangers and Mash is quick and easy to make, and also makes a cheap yet very substantial meal. A great favorite with children. Where once it was only possible to buy beef or pork sausages, there are now many different flavors available, from spicy through to fruity. Ask your local butcher for his recommendations. Any thick rich gravy is perfect for Bangers and Mash but my favorite is an onion gravy

Notes: When making the caramel, it helps to use a regular stainless steel or other light-colored saucepan; the paler background lets you see the true color of the caramel as it darkens. The sauce may be made up to a week ahead and kept chilled, covered in plastic wrap. Leftovers are great on ice cream.
