Step 1

Heat the oil in a pan over medium high heat. Add the sausage and cook until golden brown, about 2 to 4 minutes per side, and set them aside, slicing them as desired.

Add the onions and mushrooms and sauté until tender, about 5 to 7 minutes. Add the garlic and thyme and sauté until fragrant, about a minute.

Add the Guinness, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, and brown sugar along with the sausage and simmer for 10 minutes.

Mix the grated potatoes, mashed potatoes, flour, and enough milk to make a nice thick pancake like batter.

Heat the butter in a pan over medium heat, add the batter and cook until golden brown on both sides, about 4 minutes per side.
