Sausages are some of the best staples to have in the freezer, you can serve them up for breakfast, lunch or dinner and there are endless ways of making them more interesting but you’re guaranteed great flavour regardless of how it is served.
The key is to use good quality sausages that aren’t too processed. A little trick to really get the flavour into this particular dish is to remove the outer casing of the sausage which allows the flavours to really get into the meat.
This meal can be thrown together in minutes and you can forget about it as it bakes which frees up time to do just about anything else after a busy day.
Let’s get cooking…
First up let’s remove the skins from the sausages. Make a small slit down the length of the sausage and the skins should easily peel off. Then place it into a roasting tray along with some chopped up peppers and onions. Mix up the ingredients for the marinade and pour over the sausages and veg. And hey presto you’re done!
Pop into an oven and forget about it for 40 minutes. Once it’s cooked, serve up immediately on a pile of buttery mashed potatoes.
