Ingredients

  • 8 British free-range pork sausages
  • 2 x 400g tins butter beans, drained and rinsed
  • 400ml vegetable or chicken stock
  • 50-75g vintage cheddar, coarsely grated
  • Knob of butter
  • Small handful of fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • Steamed and buttered spinach to serve
  • Dijon or wholegrain mustard to serve

Method

  1. Heat the grill to medium-high and cook the sausages for 10-15 minutes, turning often, until dark and golden.
  2. Meanwhile, put the butter beans in a pan together with the stock, bring to a simmer and boil for 3-4 minutes until heated through and tender. Drain well, then either mash them with a hand-held masher or whizz briefly in a blender until you have a coarse mash.
  3. Stir through the grated cheese, butter and parsley, season to taste, then serve alongside the sausages, with steamed and buttered spinach and a dollop of mustard on the side.

  1. The amount of mash here might look a bit small compared with a big dollop of mashed potato, but the butter beans and cheese make for a very filling alternative.
