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!

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
Very cheap and quick andeasy to make. Tasted delicious!
Just followed the recipe turned out lovely.
NEW TIP
Sweet Potato
If you want something a little Lighter then replace half the potatoes with sweet potatoes… just as amazing!
Add seasonal veggies to add variety
I added beetroot and cherry tomatoes for a seasonal twist
Amazing
Loved this as did all the family. I cooked the sausages on their own for a while first as we like them a bit more well done. Used some spare baking potatoes and cut into small wedges which worked really well.
Easy meal to make with delicious results.
Made vegan by using plant based sausages and ingredients. Hint would be to brown vegan sausages first slightly as they don’t really colour in the oven.
Easy to make and delicious to eat.
I put everything into the air fryer and left to cook on 180 for 30 mins, stirring occasionally perfectly cooked and tastes amazing
Loved this recipe with a few of my own tweaks
I used quorn sausages and frozen roasted vegetable mix. Then added extra mushrooms and peppers. I used water as I am allergic to apples, but the taste was lovely.
Love this recipe so much
Put in extra carrots, apple and some sweet potatoes.
Loved this recipe
I added a bit extra honey and used dijon instead of wholegrain mustard. Will definitely be making this again
Delicious
I used vegetable stock instead of apple juice as I didn’t have any to hand. I also added butternut squash and a handful of mushrooms.
Very quick and easy to make and bursting with flavour
Popped sausages in air fryer for a few minutes to slightly brown and par boiled potatoes and carrots a bit longer. Added some red peppers as I love them too.
Very tasty and easy to make. I used 200ml of veg stock as I didn’t have apple juice. I also added extra veg to the dish to bulk it out more. Definitely be making this again 😊
Fabulous! Easy to make veggie 🙂
I made this vegetarian by following the exact recipe and substituting meat free sausages.
1
Yummy!
Don’t add the apple juice if you want it less sweet, swap for chicken stock!
What I added
I added some sweet potatoes as I only had a few white potatoes
A firm favourite of ours. At least once a fortnight.
Added parsnip for extra flavour. So tasty
Delicious! We add an extra apple as its so tasty, and use local sausages from the butcher.
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.
Simple and delicious
I used chicken stock instead of juice - worked perfectly!
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.
Very easy to make
Keep turning sausages, if you like them brown all over.
Use any seasonal veg, parsnips work well especially with the honey and mustard 👍
I added 100ml of vegetable stock to the dish and it helped give me that slight bit more sauce.
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.”
Add chicken
We added chicken instead of sausage
Taste sensation!
I used 100ml of apple juice and added a little more honey.
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!!
1
I did a smaller recipe
I added peppers and butternut squash for extra veg
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
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!
Very tasty Will definitely make again
I didn’t use potatoes, I used butternut squash runner beans instead.
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 🙂
Really delicious easy to follow recipe
Fantastic combination of protein, fruit & vegetables so tasty
So easy to make! Delicious too! I used tinned potatoes as I had loads in the cupboard!
Substitutions
Know someone that doesn't like mustard? Try using a good pickle/chutney with a touch of cayenne!

    Hi Louise, currently our Sausage Traybake doesn’t appear in any of our books and is exclusive to our website.

Had no apple or apple juice so replaced with orange juice and fresh sage. The sausages were skinny Italian flavoured chicken sausages. Overall: fabulous!

Can this be done in the slow cooker ?

Reply

    LisaSaturday 25th February 2023

    Hi Vicki.
    This recipe isn’t really suitable for the slow cooker. You need the dry heat of the oven to roast the vegetables and potatoes, and to brown the sausages. Hope this helps.

Mrs B ToddThursday 23rd February 2023

If you can’t freeze it would it be ok to add roasted potatoes to it later when you defrost it

Reply

    LisaMonday 27th February 2023

    Freezing the roasted vegetables can make them go a bit soggy and mushy, so we do think that this recipe is best served fresh. You. could always halve the recipe to avoid having leftovers. Hope this helps

Can this be done in an air fryer? I imagine that it can but I’m unsure on timings. Thank you! (Air fryer newbie!)

    Hey Caroline, we haven’t tested this recipe in an air-fryer but it should be okay, we have a conversion guide HERE to help!
