Smile Too many ingredients?

I am planning to have some firends over for a relaxed supper and was planning on serving sausage and mash.

I am going to cook pork & leek sausages and was wondering whether to serve mustard mash or just plain - do you think mustard mash would be too many flavours once the gravy is on?

thanks

I'd do plain mash, which will suit all tastes.

Welcome to DC luciem.

Pork and leek sausages sound delish. Do you make up your own or have a recipe to share, or they readymade? I would go with the mustard -- sounds like a tasty combo of flavors. Are you serving anything else on the side -- sauerkraut etc. When's dinner?

How about doing a roasted garlic mash, but make a mustard sauce?

At the risk of seeming totally unlearned, what is "mash"?

Mashed potato.

I guess my first questions would have to be ... can you list the ingredients in the gravy recipe? Without knowing what flavors are in the gravy it's hard to guess if mustard in the mash would be too much.

While not exactly "bangers and mash" in the English style - I did grow up eating grilled sausages and mustard potato salad (mashed potatoes, mustard, mayonaise, pickle relish, diced hard boiled eggs, diced onions, (one aunt always threw in some small-diced celery and pimento), a splash of cider vinegar, and sometimes some crumbles of fried smoked streaky bacon). The potato salad could be served either warm or cold - and we never put gravy on potato salad.
