Give Your Bangers & Mash an Irish Twist — by Adding Guinness

Sure, people have found lots of other ways to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, but those of us who love to honor the Irish roots of the holiday know it’s really all about the food — and a great bangers and mash topped with Guinness gravy is the second most important part of the holiday (after corned beef and cabbage of course).

You heard that right; Guinness is the perfect addition to bangers and mash. Family and friends will love the extra Irish twist, and even better for you: This dish is easy to pull off.

Tip: If you can’t find traditional Irish sausage (bangers), your favorite go-to sausage will work.
