Sausage Traybake - Pinch of Nom Slimming Recipes

For the full list of ingredients and comprehensive instructions, please see the recipe card below. Before you scroll, there’s important stuff in the blurb!

On busy days, it’s so nice to be able to throw a few simple ingredients into a dish and let the oven work its magic. This Sausage Traybake is minimal in effort, but so rewarding when it comes to flavour. 

There’s no need for multiple pans or lots of prep, just parboil the potatoes and carrots and then throw everything into a roasting dish. Who doesn’t love a recipe with less washing up afterwards?

Drawing on the classic combination of pork and apple, this recipe includes fresh wedges of apple, nestled in with onions, carrots and potatoes. Coated in a honey and mustard sauce, all the flavours mingle together as they roast, turning golden, caramelised and completely irresistible. 

Although we’ve used reduced fat pork sausages there’s no reason these can’t be swapped for vegetarian sausages if you want to make this recipe meat-free. Just remember to keep an eye on the calories if you’re following a diet plan. 

What diets is this Sausage Traybake suitable for?

This Sausage Traybake can be enjoyed on a dairy free diet. The recipe can be made gluten free if you swap the sausages for a gluten free version. 

It can also be made vegetarian as long as you use veggie sausages. 

If you’re cooking for people with allergies, be extra careful when checking ingredients and preparing food!

How Weight Watchers friendly is this Sausage Traybake recipe?

Weight Watchers’ new PersonalPoints plan calculates each individual’s Points allowance based on their unique food preferences and goals. This means we’re no longer able to offer exact WW points for our recipes.

The good news is that all of our recipes are still Weight Watchers friendly! If you have any questions about your Points budgets or you’re unsure how a certain recipe will fit into your plan, please reach out to Weight Watchers directly.

Do you need any special ingredients to make Sausage Traybake?

Our favourite thing about this recipe is that you don’t need anything fancy! It uses simple, hearty ingredients that are available in your usual supermarket. 

Hints & Tips

Below we added some of our communities most common hints and tips. We hope you find them useful.

NEW TIP
Delicious! We add an extra apple as its so tasty, and use local sausages from the butcher.
NEW TIP
Loved it. Very tasty
I didn't have any apple juice so used 100 ml vegetable stock instead, also added a green pepper to the traybake. Really, really nice. Can thoroughly recommend this one.
NEW TIP
Simple and delicious
I used chicken stock instead of juice - worked perfectly!
NEW TIP
Another clean plate!
We used Cumberland sausages from the butchers. We don't like apple so we left out the apple and used chicken stock rather than apple juice.
NEW TIP
Very easy to make
Keep turning sausages, if you like them brown all over.
NEW TIP
Use any seasonal veg, parsnips work well especially with the honey and mustard 👍
NEW TIP
I added 100ml of vegetable stock to the dish and it helped give me that slight bit more sauce.
NEW TIP
Veggie Sausage Traybake
Used Richmond meat-free sausages with potatoes, carrots, onions and sweet potato. The whole family enjoyed it including my autistic son who has spent the last 12 years eating only a very limited “beige diet.”
NEW TIP
Add chicken
We added chicken instead of sausage
NEW TIP
Taste sensation!
I used 100ml of apple juice and added a little more honey.
NEW TIP
Easy to cook as basically a one pot meal.
I cooked mine for an additional 20 minutes, reduced the mustard to 2tsp & also added some Bouillon to the sauce and the results were fantastic, it tasted amazing!!

NEW TIP
I did a smaller recipe
I added peppers and butternut squash for extra veg
NEW TIP
Had to try this traybake as so many have said how nice it is
I browned the Sausages in the tray before adding the vegetables as I didn't want them too anemic - worked perfectly
NEW TIP
Love this recipe and this time my BBQ version.
Cooked on the bbq. I used Lidl potatoes from a jar and added mixed peppers, partly cooked the carrots and added the partly (bbq'd) sausages at the same time as the apple juice etc. Delicious - and no electricity!
NEW TIP
Very tasty Will definitely make again
I didn’t use potatoes, I used butternut squash runner beans instead.
NEW TIP
I added in some parsnips to boost the veggies and it just made it even more filling. Served with some broccoli and was a perfect dinner to have as a roast on a Sunday 🙂
NEW TIP
Really delicious easy to follow recipe
Fantastic combination of protein, fruit & vegetables so tasty
NEW TIP
So easy to make! Delicious too! I used tinned potatoes as I had loads in the cupboard!
NEW TIP

Can you use veggie sausages that are cooked from frozen? Or use chilled or defrosted veggie sausages?

Reply

    HollyTuesday 26th April 2022

    Hi Hannah, yes any type of meat free sausage will work in this recipe, it’s best to refer to you pack instructions for the best way to cook them and if they suggest to cook from frozen or defrosted, hope that helps!

    Hey Anne, the Sausage Traybake has a little sweetness from the apple and honey but is not overall a sweet recipe, hope that helps!

Someone in the house doesn’t like apple juice, could I make up some veg stock and use that? I know its would change the flavour

Can diluted apple juice be used?

    Hi Phillipa, you could use diluted apple juice but it would alter the flavour of the dish a little.

I don’t have any whole grain mustard but have English mustard powder.
Can I use this instead and if so, how much?
TIA

    HollyMonday 21st March 2022

    Hey Lainey, mustard powder has a more intense and powerful flavour so add a little at a time until it’s right for your taste, hope that helps!

I didn’t have any apple juice so I have used low cal low alcohol cider, can’t wait to taste this

Reply

    SharonMonday 7th March 2022

    Hi Anita, cider is a good alternative, it will give you the same flavours as apple juice. Thanks for sharing your tip!

KirstenFriday 4th March 2022

Hi, if I don’t have any apple juice, can I just use water?

Reply

    HollyMonday 7th March 2022

    Hi Kirsten, you could swap the apple juice for water but you would miss out on the flavour from the apple juice, hope that helps!

I don’t like mustard, is there an alternative?

Reply

    HollyMonday 7th March 2022

    Hi Kay, if you don’t like mustard you could omit from the recipe this would alter the overall finished flavour but it should still taste great without. Hope that helps!

I don’t like thyme, what other herb could I use? Thanks.

Reply

    SharonTuesday 1st March 2022

    Hi Anne, you could use sage or oregano instead of thyme; either would go well with the ingredients in this dish. Hope that helps.
