Happy St. Patrick’s Day from Casaculinarian.com



Well it was a great day. We are getting old, so when having cocktails at 3:00 pm means bed a 9:00 pm. We had a lot of fun, and the recipes were awesome. Thanks for following. Check out our Pix for the day!!!






The Corned Beef was perfect. Very hard to cut, it was so tender… My winner of the night was the bangors and mash with onion gravy! It was sensational. I think the sauce was too thick compared to the traditional recipe’s, but who cares- it was Fantastic!!!!

bangors and mash


Casaculinarian.com 2016 St. Patrick Day Bangors and Mash Recipe


bangors and mash

Bangors and Mash- A simple traditional meal for St. Patrick’s Day and great alternative to the Corned Beef. It is very hard to find Bangors- so I typically will use Brats at home. Bangor’s are a very mild almost creamy Sausage. They call them Bangors because when the skin opens during cooking they bang and burst… The Mash part is obvious. Serves 2-4 people

mild sausage raw- 1 package bangors or bratwurst 4-5 large links

olive oil 1 tablespoon

In a cast iron pan add olive oil on medium heat.  Brown both sides of the sausage and add to a the oven at 350 degrees to finish cooking to 165 degrees internal temperature.

Onion Gravy:

pan drippings from sausage

butter 2 tablespoons

flour 1 tablespoons

onion 1/4 diced

beef broth 1 and 1/2 cups

salt and pepper for taste

dark beer 2 oz.

Keep your pan drippings in the cast iron pan. Add butter and onions and brown. Whisk in your flour and whisk till lumps dissolve. Deglaze with the dark beer. Add seasonings and beef broth. The sauce is traditionally thinner than thicker. Place on low temperature.


yellow potatoes 5-6 peeled and sliced

half and half 1/4-1/2 cup

kosher salt 1 tablespoon (you can use less)

black pepper for taste

butter 3 tablespoons

onion powder 1/2 teaspoon

parsley 1/2 teaspoon

Boil potatoes until tender. Drain water out. Add Butter and seasonings. Add 1/4 of half and half to start. Mash with potato masher or large whip. Add more half and half if necessary- a little at a time until consistency is perfect. Build your plate. Gravy on the bottom, Mashed in the middle of the plate, and Sausage on top. You can drizzle more Gravy over the Sausage if you wish. Our Pix’s coming tomorrow. Enjoy! Jason.
