I'm lazy and the first to admit it. Some nights I can't be bothered standing at the hob for ages, I just want to sit down with a cuppa and a Marian Keyes book. So this is the perfect meal for lazy people like me as it takes less than ten minutes to prep and then sits in the oven happily cooking away while you relax without any guilt whatsoever. Plus it's very adaptable as I often just see what vegetables I have left in the fridge.
Any veg that's good for roasting - peppers, squash etc - I used carrots, onions, garlic and cherry tomatoes this time. The tomatoes will pretty much disintegrate but they add a lovely sweetness.
Potatoes - any that are suitable for roasting
Oil - I used olive oil but vegetable/sunflower is fine
Salt and Pepper
I've not specified any amounts as that will depend on how many people you want to serve. As a rough guide, allow 2-3 sausages per person and about 5-6 large chunks of potato each.
Roughly chop your veg. I don't bother peeling anything (apart from the onions & garlic as, like I said, I'm lazy). Place into a large roasting tin.
Add your sausages and season well with salt and pepper. Drizzle over some oil, about 1-2 tbsp, you don't need much as the sausages will release some fat too. Now get your hands in (or use a spoon if you don't like getting mucky!) and move it all around to get everything coated in the oil.
Easy. Now you just bung it in the oven at 200° fan for about an hour to an hour and a half (depending on the size of your potatoes) while you read your book or watch telly. It's ready when the potatoes are tender and the sausages are browned. The kids love this one - although my two always pick out the onions - what is it with kids and onions? Serve on it's own or with some gravy and yorkie puds.
