What is Bangers and Mash, and Why is it Called that?
Bangers and Mash is a traditional British dish that consists of sausages, mashed potatoes, and gravy.
The name of the dish is derived from the term “bangers” which is a slang term for sausages. It was first used in World War II to describe the practice of using explosives to kill animals. The term was then used in reference to sausages being cooked in water or other liquid, which causes them to make a popping sound like an explosion.
