(FOX 2) - Ackroyd's Scottish Bakery is jazzed up for the Women's World Cup, and has the perfect food and beverages to enjoy while watching the matches.
Megan Ackroyd joined us in the FOX 2 Cooking School to show us how to make a traditional bangers and mash. You can watch in the video player above and get the recipe below.
Bangers and mash, also known as sausages and mash, is a traditional dish of the U.K, consisting of sausages served with mashed potatoes (and our version includes rutabaga). The dish is sometimes served with onion gravy, fried onions, or peas.
Bangers can be picked up at Ackroyd's Bakery at 25566 Five Mile Road in Redford, MI or order online at ackroydsbakery.com.
Alternatively, you can use any mild English or Irish style sausage

1 pound Potatoes (preferably Yukon Gold) diced (peel is optional). Boiled & cooled.
