The people at debbie & andrews recently sent me a package of their new Buttered Onion & Mustard sausaged to try and so I created a delicious supper dish with them that celebrates not only the flavour of these delicious sausages but also lovely autumn flavours.
2 apples, peeled, cored and cut into wedges
(I like to use Granny Smith because they hold their shape well and have a lovely tartness
2 TBS whole grain Dijon mustard
2 TBS runny honey
a good splash of cloudy apple juice
1 medium butternut squash, peeled, seeded and cut into chunks
2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks
extra virgin olive oil
sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
Preheat the oven to 200*C/400*F/ gas mark 6. Put the sausages onto a baking tray along with the apple wedges.
Whisk together the mustard, honey and apple juice. Pour over the sausages and apples, tossing to coat all over.
Bake in the oven for 20 to 25 minutes, shaking stirring now and then to prevent sticking.
While the sausages are baking place the squash and sweet potatoes into a lightly salted pan of boiling water to cover. Bring back to the boil, then cover and simmerto 15 minutes until tender. Drain well and return the vegetables to the hot pan. I then placed the pan back over low heat and mashed them until they dried out a bit. I stirred in a knob of butter and a good seasoning of salt and pepper.
Serve a generous scoop of mash piled with two sausages, some apples and some of the sticky pan juices to each lucky person.
debbie & andrew's sausages are available through Amazon Fresh, Asda, Morrisons, Ocado, Sainsbury's and Tesco, priced between £2.00 and £3.50 dependent on retailer and promotions.
Note – I was sent a pack of sausages free of charge but not required to write a positive review. (Many thanks to debbie & andrew's!) Any opinions are my own. I quite simply like these sausages and they are always my sausage of choice. I use them all the time. My favourites are the Harrogate 97% and the Cumberland. These were lovely too.
