One of the biggest questions for me is “How easy is it to make?”
This is one of my keepers for those nights I have NO idea what I’m going to cook! There is ALWAYS some sausage in my freezer and veggies lying around! Put them together and you get a Sausage Veggie Bake!!
Here is my version of the Sausage Veg Bake. There are many versions out there and they all focus on the simplicity and speed of the meal.
Besides the amount of time it takes to bake, the prep time is nothing. I like the idea of putting whatever vegetables you have on hand and throwing them in.
In this picture I have red capsicums (peppers to the USA crowd), eggplant, carrots and jap pumpkin (squash). I have also made one tonight that had butternut pumpkin (squash), zucchini, mushrooms, onions, minced garlic and potatoes. Pop them in a baking dish with some oil, cover with foil and cook at 180/350 for 40ish then take foil off to give a crispier finish.
The mixtures are endless! I make the veggies that cook faster, a bigger size (eggplant, capsicums) and the others a smaller size (pumpkin/squash, carrots, potatoes) they will cook in the same amount of time. It seemed to have worked for me so far. To top it off-the juice from the sausages come out and mix with the veggies.
This dish can be a one pot dish or you can add a salad to go with. I will often give my kids a plate of salad while this is cooling down, that way they get a head start on their veggie intake for the meal.
note: It’s best if you can get good quality sausages from your local butcher or some of the shops will carry some with out so many fillers, additives or preservatives. :-)
