Sausage and Potato Traybake

0:40 m

This may be the perfect mid-week meal: speedy, simple, healthy and delicious! We love a traybake, because you can just pop your goodies in the oven, wait a little while, and you have a great meal! We don't know many people who don't love sausages or potatoes, so this traybake is a winner. We topped it with a fresh and zesty salsa verde which brings everything together perfectly.

Make the tray bake

  • Bring a medium saucepan of salted water to the boil

Add the sausages

  • Take the tin out of the oven and stir the potatoes around, lightly crushing a few if they’re soft
  • Add the sausages, tomatoes and thyme to the pan
  • Put the tin back in the oven for 20-25 minutes until the potatoes are golden, the tomatoes have split and the sausages are cooked through
