– Fabulous Family Food –
Cheap & Cheerful Sausage, Onion & Potato Bake
Not a Sunday lunch as might be expected today, but a cheap and cheerful one tray bake, with all the families favourite ingredients in one dish…….juicy sausages (with a vegetarian option), crispy potatoes, meltingly soft onions and baked beans……combining some of your one-a-day vegetables, carbohydrates, protein and oil…..and, this dish won’t break the bank either! And the reason I am posting it on Sunday? To help with meal planning for the next week, as well as the fact that this would make an easy Sunday supper dish, leaving more time for family pursuits before a busy week ahead. This recipe uses one packet of sausages, one pound of potatoes, two onions, some oil and a couple of tins of baked beans, and will feed two adults and two children with ease.
If you have more than two little ones, the just tweak the quantities up a wee bit…..it really is an easy recipe that can be adapted to suit, as well as making a vegetarian version with Quorn sausages too. If you are not keen on serving baked beans with this, then how about fried or baked tomatoes or steamed Savoy cabbage…..or, some garden peas and carrots. You could also serve this with some Yorkshire puddings, a sort of de-constructed Toad in the Hole! This is not posh food, but with a packet of good quality and high meat content British butcher’s sausages, it makes a very tasty supper dish. I have made this for my parents before with Quorn sausages, I tend not to cut them into pieces, and just leave them whole when baking them, as they can dry out. Another idea for an accompaniment, how about a jug of hot onion gravy…..or even some apple sauce to go with those pork bangers.
I will leave you for now, I will be back a little later with the Slow Sunday round-up from last month, and the new link for March’s Slow Sunday blog hop…….see you later, and pass me one of those sausages please! Karen
I am adding this family supper recipe to Ren’s Family Friendly Friday event.
