  1. Place the potatoes in a pan, and add enough water to cover. Bring to a boil, and cook until tender, about 20 minutes. Drain, leaving the potatoes in the pan.
  2. Meanwhile, stir the bouillon cubes into the warm milk until dissolved. Stir the milk mixture and butter into the potatoes. Mash the potatoes until smooth and creamy.
  3. Heat the cooking oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Prick the sausages in a few places with a fork, and place them into the skillet. Cook, turning often, until golden brown and juices run clear, 12 to 15 minutes depending on thickness. Remove from the skillet and drain on paper towels.
  4. Using the same skillet, add the onion rings. Cook and stir over medium heat until the onions are golden, but still crisp, about 5 minutes.
  5. Heat the gravy in a pan over medium heat.
  6. To serve, scoop the potatoes onto a large serving plate. Arrange the sausages over the potatoes, top with the onions, drizzle with gravy, and sprinkle with oregano.

Ok, I really played with this recipe...but gosh, it is such a good comforting meal! I grilled my sausages and made my own beef gravy with stock I thickened up. I uses Emeril's cheddar, onion mashed potatoes and let me tell you...this was better then anything you'd get in a pub! Delish!!!

The "mash" part was a little salty for my tastes, although the entire 6 lbs. were eaten, so maybe it's just me. Used grilled polish sausage because that's all I had...again, no complaints. A good meal, that makes me want to take a nap.

this is exactly how I make them (minus the chicken broth/milk idea for the potatoes)- some recipes call for beef sausage, i always stick to pork- better flavor with the gravy... this recipe is very easy and very tasty!!!

This came out fantastic! I made some changes, based on what I had. I used turkey sausage and used my own mashed potatos recipe. It was simple, tasty and comforting. I served it with some smashed peas with mint. Definately a keeper.

this is a very good dish that I will make again. Just to make it easier, I grilled the sausages and then cut them up and added them to the bottom of the casserole dish. Then I layered on some gravy I had made. ( I addedBistro! a british gravy powdew to the pan with the sausage drippings and whisked in some water and veg stock.) Then I added the onions and bell pepper mixture and then the mashed potato. Very yummy for the winter.
