Put the potatoes on to boil. When they are fork tender, take out and mash with 1/2 the butter, milk and salt and pepper. as the potatoes are cooking, take 1/2 the butter, melt it down and add flour till it forms a wet sandy beach consistency.

é pan with some oil and your onions. when the onions have started to sweat add your bangers. sear the bangers around the outside along with caramelizing your onions in the same pan. When the bangers are seared add Guinness gravy to your pan and let simmer for 3-5minutes. Put 1 large scoop of mashed on a plate, flatten a little and place 3-4 bangers and a onions over the mash. Top by pouring the gravy from the pan over the bangers and mash pile! Eat while hot!!!!!
