Bangers and Smash



6 potatoes, left whole

500 g sausages

Olive oil, for cooking

1 jar pesto

Cup of green beans chopped

Flat-leaf parsley and baby spinach, to serve

Feeds 4


Light your fire and let it burn down until you obtain a medium heat or cook over the stove if you’re vibing those cosy feels. 

Meanwhile, cook the potatoes in the pot of boiling water until just tender but still firm. Drain and set aside.

Cook the sausages in the frying pan (in a coil or circle) over the fire.

While the sausages are cooking, pour a good splash of olive oil into the frying pan, add the potatoes and smash with a rock. Cook until they are lightly golden, then spoon over the pesto, add the peas and cook for another 5–10 minutes. Serve with the sausages, with tossed parsley and spinach over the top.
