Finishing the flat bean mash – 20 minutes

Fry the bacon in a medium-sized skillet for a few minutes. Sauté the onions for a few more minutes and set aside.

Cook the flat beans in the medium-sized pan for a few minutes, making sure they are not overcooked. They are best when they are al dente.

Drain the potatoes and mash them roughly with a potato masher. Stir in the flat beans and fried bacon and onions.

Create a smooth mash with a good splash of milk and a knob of butter. Season with nutmeg, pepper, salt and a tablespoon of mustard. Serve with a smoked sausage if you like, enjoy!
