Winter sausage roast


One large roasting tin or oven dish


  1. Preheat the oven to 220°C/ 200°C fan/ 425°F / gas mark 7.
  2. Put the oil in the roasting tin or oven dish and add the sausages.
  3. Use a sausage to spread the oil about to cover the bottom of the dish.
  4. Chop the potatoes to roughly 2.5cm/1″ chunks.
  5. Peel the onion and cut it into eighths.
  6. Deseed the pepper and again chop roughly into 2.5cm/1″ chunks.
  7. Add the potatoes, onions and peppers to the sausages. Sprinkle the chilli flakes and oregano over everything. Season the vegetables with salt and pepper. I find the sausages don’t need any extra seasoning. Then mix everything up with your hands.
  8. Put the dish in the oven for 30 minutes.
  9. After 30 minutes add the tomatoes to the dish and put back in the oven for another 15 minutes.
  10. If you are going to serve buttery wilted spinach too, use the last 5 minutes to wilt the spinach so it’s ready when the Winter Sausage Roast is lightly browned.
