Orange Glazed Pork Sausages and Creamy Mash, Mushrooms & Spring Onions

A new take on classic bangers and mash with a Winter boost. Bangers and mash are usually sausages with a mash and onion gravy. We’ve changed it up by using some fresh Winter oranges and seasonal produce. The pork sausages are cooked in an orange glaze and paired with the best creamy mash, using parmesan along with some pan-fried mushrooms.
