  1. To make the potato cakes, squeeze the grated potatoes to get rid of any excess liquid. Mix together the potato, apple, egg, flour and thyme. Season with salt and pepper. Form into 4 patties and set aside.
  2. Preheat the grill to high. Cook the sausages for 10-15 minutes, or until cooked through.
  3. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a frying pan and fry the potato cakes over a medium heat for 2-3 minutes on each side, or until browned and cooked through.
  4. Cook the green beans in lightly salted boiling water for 3-4 minutes, or until tender.
  5. Serve the grilled sausages with the potato and apples cakes and hot gravy.
