sausage and potato bakeHands up who else is trying to cut back on the calories and the spending this month after the onslaught of Christmas? I am that’s for sure and this dish is an easy one to prepare, nourishing and appeals to all of the family.

Sausage and potato bake

serves 4

1 pack of sausages
some mini chorizos (optional)
6 red potatoes cut into bite sized chunks
1 green pepper cut into bite sized chunks
1 red pepper cut into bite sized chunks
1 onion sliced into rings
2 garlic cloves
250ml chicken stock
olive oil
mixed herbs
salt and pepper
(I added some runner beans I had in the fridge too but they are not essential and need par-boiling too)

Preheat the oven to 200C

Put your potatoes in a pan of water and bring to the boil, simmer for ten minutes (par boil)

Meantime place all of the ingredients in a roasting tin or oven proof dish, add the potatoes once par boiled, season and place in the oven for 30 minutes. If you want crispier potatoes leave in for an extra 10/15 minutes.
