Recipe - Mikey's Lazy Sausage Bake
This is a very simple recipe that still gives you lots back. There's not much prep and it sort of cooks itself.
You can just serve it in the tray you cooked it in and let everyone serve themselves so you don't even have to go for that extra effort.
The point in this recipe that I am a bit ambivalent with is the potatoes. Parboiling them takes a little bit extra time but you won't end up with any hard potato centres that way.
If you want to avoid that problem totally, just serve the sausage bake with some mashed potatoes instead.
As always, I go for a mixture of sausages - sort of a sausage roulette.
4 large potatoes, peeled and cut into smaller pieces
3 red onions, finely sliced
4 plum tomatoes, thickly sliced
Peeled garlic cloves, to taste
Fresh rosemary sprigs
8 pork sausages, well pricked
Pre-heat the oven to 200c.
Par-boil the potatoes in some salted water for 2 - 3 minutes. Drain and allow to let some steam off.
Put the potatoes, onions, garlic and tomato slices in a deep baking tray. Drizzle with olive oil and mix it up a bit. Scatter with the herbs and season well. Put the sausages on top.
Cook in the oven for about an hour, stirring the veg and rotating the sausages every now and then.
