Day 2, Smoky, Sweet Sausage Traybake

So it is day two, and everything I have eaten so far has involved a component made in a roasting tin. This included my roasted banana, yoghurt and nut breakfast, and my pasta leftovers with spinach and avocado for lunch.

Recipe!

Tonight’s dinner was straight out of my roasting tin book, and it tasted amazing! The recipe was smoky sausage, sweet potato and red onion traybake.

Ingredients

The ingredients were:

  • 4 Pork sausages
  • 2 Sweet potatoes
  • 1 Red onion
  • Spinach
  • 3 Garlic cloves
  • Smoked paprika
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper

The beauty of this recipe is that it was so simple.

I peeled the sweet potato, cut it into chunky wedges and chucked it in my roasting tin along with the the red onion that I cut into eighths. Lastly I separated 4 pork sausages, and broke off 3 cloves of garlic from the bulb, which once again were put in the tin.

Over the meat and veg I poured a healthy helping of vegetable oil, and a large sprinkling of smoked paprika. At this point I also added salt and pepper. With the spice and seasoning now combined into the oil, I used my hands to mix everything together, ensuring all the potato wedges and onion were full of flavour too.

Coated!

I had preheated the oven to 180 degrees before putting my roasting tray into cook. After 50 minutes I added a handful of spinach to the sausages and veg, and put back under the heat for an extra 2 minutes. The spinach was a last minute extra, I just fancied a little bit of green, and some added freshness. After the 2 minutes were up, the spinach had wilted and the sausages were sticky.

All Cooked

The paprika had coated everything in a orange spicy seasoning and the meaty smell of the sausages filled the kitchen, making me even more hungry- I was positively salivating.

After reading my meal plan, Ellen had decided she fancied a bit of my smoky sausage, so I served up 2 portions. We had 2 sausages each, which had become sweet and juicy after the slow roasting, and I divided up the veg between our pink bowls.

Good enough to eat!

With another handful of spinach and a squeeze of mayo, my dinner was finally ready- and I cannot forget about the habanero chilli flakes. This recipe really exceeded my expectations, and both Ellen and myself really enjoyed it!! Also, sausages are a low-cost ingredient, getting 8 from Aldi for £1.39

Per portion the dish costs about 90p!! Making it my best value meal to date!
