Learn something new every day More Info Bangers are a type of sausage common to the UK. They are often an essential part of pub food, as they are quick to prepare, but they're also often made at home. In fact, to avoid losing some of the sausage, they can be boiled first, and sliced lengthwise prior to frying or grilling.
These sausages are white or pink and are made primarily of pork butt, a small amount of breadcrumbs, and water. They are normally pleasantly spiced with both sweet and savory spices. The average banger will have both salt and pepper, as well as sage, ginger and mace or allspice.
Spices differ depending upon the brand. The ingredients are well mixed, and then stuffed into casings, as is usual with most sausages. Casings are usually made from pork or sheep intestines, and look like long translucent ropes. Some bangers are pre-cooked, which makes them easy to cook and helps ensure that the interior of the sausage will be cooked through. Sausages that are not pre-cooked often should be boiled before they are fried so the interior meat, which is not cooked, has a chance to come to a high temperature before they are finished in a hot pan.
This way, they're well cooked and have a crisp skin. In the UK, bangers may be served with breakfast, and they make part of one of Another Brick In The Wall (Part 1) - Pink Floyd - The Wall most traditional of English dishes, bangers and mash.
This is actually a quite simple dish, usually made up of two sausages served over mashed potatoes. They may also be served in sandwiches with grilled onions.

Still, I do love bangers and mash. They were a bit sourish. Don't know what they are supposed to taste like, but didn't like these particularly much. The latter are not added as filler but are used to add moisture Walter Egan - Magnet And Steel texture.
I too make my own. Bangers are relatively bland compared to Italian sausage. All I can say is the mash was good and the bangers tasted like crap. Would never put with Italian food. Completely different flavorings. I'm english and I make my bangers because the ones sold in the US are horrible, especially the widely sold Picadilly brand. I have never heard of anyone pre-boiling bangers.
A proper British banger has filler called rusk and actually ends up having a much leaner and less greasy taste.
It's quite delicious - we cook em up in a pan with Thoughts Of Rejection - Bahnhof::Zoo - The Fire Of Our Souls (File) oil with diced red onions, and then put Die Uhren Laufen Weiter - Bums - Fluchtpunkt Terror on top of mashed potatoes.
