How To Make Sausage Tray Bake

This simple recipe includes roasted vegetables drizzled in oil, sprinkled with your favourite herbs or spices, mixed alongside roasted sausages.

Use your favourite vegetables, or what is currently in season.

For this sausage tray bake I used potatoes (Maris Pipers work well),  carrots and red onions. But you could use sweet potatoes, butternut squash, parsnips – they all taste amazing when roasted!

I used plain pork sausages, but you could use some flavoured ones – I particularly like the Bramley apple flavoured ones for tray bakes! 

The only ingredients I peeled were the red onions – the rest just got washed and chopped up. I tried to cut the carrots to a similar size as the potatoes so that they would be ready at the same time.

You will need 2 baking trays for this as you won’t want to cook the sausages in the same tray as the vegetables.

In tray 1 add the chopped potatoes and carrots. Drizzle with some olive oil and season with sea salt and black pepper. You can also add in some extra dried herbs or spices if you want to.

In tray 2 add the raw sausages – I cut each sausage into 3 so that they are bite sized. Add in the red onions having quartered them. 

Place tray 1 on the top shelf of a preheated oven (200C/180C Fan/Gas Mark 6), and tray 2 beneath it.

Cook for around 40 minutes, or until the sausages are browned and the vegetables are cooked through.

Drain the fat from the sausage tray and mix with the roasted vegetables.

Serve as it is, or with my favourite – a side of roasted Brussel sprouts!
