A classic great British meal, sausage and mash is a comforting delicacy that’s easy to whip up and delightful to eat.

Popular amongst children as well as ideal for quick weekday meals, sausage and mash is usually made with creamy mashed potato and pork sausages for simple yet tasty flavours.

As appetizing as it is, sausage and mash can become a bit too plain after a while, which is why it’s nice to spice things up a bit and get creative with this family favourite.

Today, we’ll be replacing everyday pork or beef sausages with chorizo sausages, and swapping plain mashed potato for garlic mashed potato for a tantalising chorizo recipe that’s bound to impress.
