  1. Step 1

    Cook the sweet potato in a saucepan of salted boiling water for 8 mins or until tender. Drain well. Return to pan and shake over low heat for 1 min to allow moisture to evaporate. Add butter and milk and mash until smooth.
  2. Step 2

    Meanwhile, heat 1 tbsp of the oil in large frying pan over medium heat. Cook the sausages, turning, for 6 mins or until browned and cooked through. Transfer to a plate. Cover to keep warm.
  3. Step 3

    Heat the remaining oil in the pan over medium-high heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring, for 3 mins or until starting to brown. Stir in the gravy and thyme. Bring to a simmer. Remove from heat.
  4. Step 4

    Divide the mash and beans among serving plates. Top with the sausages, gravy and parsley.
