How often have you come home after a hard day at the office, tired, hungry and do not feel like cooking a big dinner?   So..... just perfect for one of those days,  is a recipe from my quick recipes book...…. Bangers and Mash Home Cooking Haven style.

  • ¾ tsp English Mustard
  • ½ tsp dried mixed herbs

  • Add the sausages and cook on med to low heat for about 20 minutes until golden brown, remove and set aside.
  • Return the onions to the skillet with mixed herbs and mustard. Cook until golden brown, .
  • Drain excess oil from pan and turn heat down to medium, sprinkle the flour into the pan, leave the flour to absorb the juices for approx. 1 min.

In South Africa, we love having pap with our boerewors and it goes just as well with bangers, see how to make pap below.

Mielie pap can be enjoyed in different ways; some prefer it thinner and smoother, while others prefer a thicker and chunkier consistency. 

In this instance we make it thicker and chunkier, and have it with the bangers and the sauce.


  • 2 cups maize meal
  • 3 cups water
  • salt and pepper to taste.
Mielie Pap


  • Mix 1 cup water with ½ cup maize meal and make a paste.
  • Boil 2 cups of water in a saucepan till it starts bubble.
  • Add a cup of maize and stir to avoid lumps.
  • Let simmer for 3-4 mins

 Below are just a few ideas for serving this tasty dish.  Spoon a generous portion of mash potato's onto a plate.

  • Place sausages on top of Mashed potato/Mash Sweet potato or pap and drizzle with gravy.
  • Add a portion of boiled or steamed  peas and enjoy!!
  • Great with bake beans.
  • In South Africa we love it on a helping of "pap" see instructions above.
  • Serve with steamed Carrots and Green beans.
  • With Bacon, Fried Potato/Sweet potato chips, Egg and fried tomatoes.

    I'm sure you will come up with more ways of plating.
