Sausages, Creamy Potato and Sweet Potato Mash with Green Veg (& a giveaway)

Good evening! We had such a lovely dinner tonight. The children helped me put together a bit of a special dinner to celebrate the launch of Richmond chicken sausages. We had sausages (obviously!), creamy potato and sweet potato mash (my favourite mash recipe at the moment!), steamed Tenderstem broccoli and steamed fine beans tossed in melted butter and garlic.

To be perfectly honest, when Richmond invited me to celebrate the launch of their brand new chicken sausages, I didn’t think I’d be impressed. 

Did I think it was an odd concept to have chicken in a sausage? Yes. 

Do I have an open mind? Yes. So I went. 

The event, which took place in a lovely Soho kitchen, was a very relaxed affair, with a bunch of friendly bloggers and the bubbly Angellica Bell, 2017 Celebrity MasterChef winner.

Angellica treated us to a food demonstration with Richmond chef Mat Stephany. We also had a go ourselves at making Yorkshire puddings (first time for me) and delicious homemade baked beans.

When I first tried the chicken sausages, I was apprehensive. Although I didn’t want to be rude, I wasn’t planning to declare I liked something I wasn’t keen on. I was pleasantly surprised by the chicken sausages. They had a lovely consistency, nice flavours and with hindsight, they were actually lighter and much easier to digest than traditional sausages.  

With no further ado, here is the recipe for our delicious dinner: Creamy Potato and Sweet Potato Mash, Greens & Richmond Chicken Sausages.
