Sausage Tray Bake

I love a sausage and this easy sausage tray bake is simple to cook and provides a hearty dinner. The star ingredient is the sausage – but not all sausages are created equal. Sausages can be highly processed and packed with fillers and preservatives which you really want to avoid. 

When buying meat, I do try and go to my local butcher where the pork they sell is local; it is from free range pigs that are outdoor reared and fed on a natural cereal based diet which ensures it has a superior flavour, both succulent and tasty. All the sausages are made by hand at the butchers and they only add in extra seasoning or herbs for flavour, so I know exactly what I am getting. Although it may not always be convenient to buy from a butcher or farm shop, when buying in a supermarket look for free range and organic options and read the labels to check what has been added – look for the percentage of pork meat and buy the best quality you can. 

This is a hearty meal and although the feeling of spring is in the air, the nights are still cold and dark and roasted vegetables and sausages make a satisfyingly warming meal! The great thing about a tray bake is that you can use whatever vegetables you have available and you can always get creative and mix it up!
