1. Guinness Onion Gravy: Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the olive oil and the onions and saute, stirring often, until caramelized, about 30 minutes.
2. Add the flour and cook until golden brown, 2-3 minutes.
3. Add the Guinness, beef broth, Dijon, vinegar, sugar, salt and pepper. Reduce heat to low and simmer until thickened, about 8-10 minutes.
4. Bangers: Heat oil in a large cast-iron skillet over medium heat. Add bangers and cook until evenly browned on both sides and cooked through, about 12-15 minutes.
5. Mashed potatoes: Quarter potatoes leaving the skin on. Place in a saucepan with water to cover, salt the water and bring to a boil over medium heat. Cook until the potatoes are tender when pierced with a fork, about 15 minutes. Drain and mash with a potato masher. Add the butter, heavy cream, garlic and continue to mash until smooth. Season with salt and pepper.
6. To assemble: Place mashed potatoes on plate, top with sausage and onion gravy and green beans or English peas.
