**Sausage with Brown Sauce and Green Mash Recipe** This recipe combines savory sausages with a flavorful brown sauce made by deglazing the frying pan with stock and mustard. It's served alongside a delicious green mash, which is pureed potatoes with the addition of spinach or broccoli. The use of a glass pot in the microwave for cooking the potatoes ensures they are tender and perfectly cooked.


For the Sausage: - 4 sausages (any variety you prefer) - Salt and pepper, to taste For the Brown Sauce: - 1 tablespoon olive oil - 1 small onion, finely chopped - 1 cup chicken or vegetable stock - 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard - Salt and pepper, to taste For the Green Mash: - 4 large potatoes, peeled and cubed - 1 cup fresh spinach or broccoli florets - 1/4 cup milk or cream - 2 tablespoons butter - Salt and pepper, to taste


1. **Cooking the Potatoes:** - Place the cubed potatoes in a microwave-safe glass pot. - Add a splash of water to the pot, cover it with a microwave-safe lid or plastic wrap with a small vent. - Microwave on high for about 8-10 minutes, or until the potatoes are fork-tender. Be sure to stir halfway through the cooking time to ensure even cooking. 2. **Cooking the Sausages:** - In a large skillet over medium heat, add a bit of oil. - Add the sausages and cook until browned on all sides and cooked through, about 10-15 minutes depending on the sausage type. Remove from the skillet and set aside. 3. **Making the Brown Sauce:** - In the same skillet, add a tablespoon of olive oil over medium heat. - Add the chopped onion and sauté until translucent and slightly caramelized, about 3-4 minutes. - Pour in the chicken or vegetable stock to deglaze the pan, using a spatula to scrape up any browned bits from the bottom of the skillet. - Stir in the Dijon mustard and let the sauce simmer for a few minutes until it thickens slightly. - Season with salt and pepper to taste. 4. **Making the Green Mash:** - In a pot, bring water to a boil and add the spinach or broccoli florets. Cook for a few minutes until they are tender. - Drain the vegetables and set them aside. - In a large bowl, mash the cooked potatoes using a potato masher or fork. - Heat the milk or cream and butter in the microwave until warm, then add them to the mashed potatoes. - Add the cooked spinach or broccoli to the potatoes and mix well. Season with salt and pepper to taste. 5. **Assembling the Dish:** - Serve the sausages on a plate, drizzled with the brown sauce. - Accompany the sausages with a generous scoop of the green mash on the side.
