  • 4 Honey Mustard Sausages
  • 450g Potato
  • 1 Red Onion
  • 100g Cavolo Nero
  • 1 Tbsp Balsamic Vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp Red Wine Stock Paste
  • 1 Tbsp Redcurrant Jelly
  • 2 Tbsp Wholegrain Mustard

Before you start, make sure to wash the veggies before you use them! You will also need some cooking tools, like Baking Tray, Kettle, Wooden Spoon, Measuring Jug, Colander, Saucepan and a Large Frying Pan.

Step by Step Instructions

Step 1: Grill the Sausages

Fill and boil your kettle and preheat your oven to 220°C. Pop the sausages on a baking tray and roast them on the top shelf of your oven until browned and cooked through, 18-20 mins, turning halfway through cooking.

IMPORTANT: The sausages are cooked when no longer pink in the middle.

Step 2: Cook the Potatoes

Meanwhile, chop the potatoes into 2cm chunks (no need to peel!). Pop them in a large saucepan along with 1/2 tsp of salt, cover with boiling water and put onto high heat.

Boil the potatoes until you can easily slip a knife through, 15-20 mins.

Step 3: Prepare the Sauce

Meanwhile, halve, peel and thinly slice the red onion. Heat a drizzle of oil in a small frying pan on medium heat.

Add the onion and cook until softened and beginning to brown, 5-7 mins. Stir often. This is the base of your gravy.

Step 4: Cook the Cavolo Nero

When the potatoes have 5 mins left, add the cavolo nero to the pan of potatoes. Submerge the cavolo nero in the boiling water or cover with a lid so it cooks.

Cook until tender, 5 mins.

Step 5: Finish Off

Lower the heat of the pan with the onions to medium and add the balsamic vinegar. Cook until almost evaporated, 1-2 mins. Add the water (see ingredients for amount) to the pan and bring to the boil.

Stir in the red wine stock paste and redcurrant jelly to dissolve. Simmer for 2-3 mins until the sauce has thickened slightly.

TIP: Add a splash of water if you feel it needs it.

Step 6: Mash and Serve the Dish

Meanwhile, drain the potatoes and cavolo nero in a colander then return to the pan. Mash together and then mix in the wholegrain mustard and a knob of butter (if you have some). Season to taste with salt and pepper – colcannon made!

Share the colcannon between your plates and serve the sausages alongside. Spoon the gravy over the sausages and tuck in!
