Maura Laverty’s Sausage Pie

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

This dish can be prepared well in advance, then browned up in the oven before serving. If re-heating from cold it will need 30 minutes in a moderately hot oven-180-200 C.

The mash for this dish can be  as simple or as special as you like. Either mash up the potatoes quickly by hand, adding butter, salt and pepper, or pop everything in the processor to make a perfect pomme puree. This can then be piped or spooned over the sausage. For a quick finish, just smooth over the mash and roughen up with a fork or make a pattern with the inside of a dessertspoon.

1 lb sausages

2 apples

2 tblsp oil for frying

2 onions

Mashed potato

1 tblsp flour

½  pint vegetable stock or water.
