Ingredients:

  • Half of one medium pumpkin, the Crown Prince is perfect for this recipe
  • 10 good quality sausages
  • 3 onions
  • 2 large red apples
  • 6 garlic cloves
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 tsp honey
  • A handful of blackberries

Pumpkin and Sausage Traybake

Who doesn’t love a one pot dinner. Nothing quite beats it and when you throw sausages into the mix, especially in my house with three small but hungry boys (and one large one!), you are on to a winner.

Quick and super easy to create and super tasty. The perfect mid week supper and some good quality sourdough is highly recommended to mop up the juices at the end.

Ingredients:

  • Half of one medium pumpkin, the Crown Prince is perfect for this recipe
  • 10 good quality sausages
  • 3 onions
  • 2 large red apples
  • 6 garlic cloves
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 tsp honey
  • A handful of blackberries

Method:

  1. Begin by pre heating the oven to 180C. Place 10 good quality sausages on a large baking tray and cook for 10 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile peel and chop three white onions into chunks and core and chop two large red apples.
  3. Cut one medium sized pumpkin in half. The Crown Prince variety is perfect for this recipe. Remove the seeds with a spoon. Use one half and cut into similar sized chunks. Use the other half of the pumpkin for a soup.
  4. Once the sausages have cooked for 10 minutes, add the apples, onions, whole garlic cloves  and pumpkin to the tray, making sure that everything is evenly spaced out and not piled on top of one and other. Scatter a handful of pumpkin seeds over the top.
  5. Place 3 – 4 tbsp olive oil in a bowl with 4 tsp of honey and mix well. Drizzle all over the ingredients. Bake in the oven at 180c for 40 – 45 minutes and turn everything half way through.
  6. 10 minutes from the end add a good handful of blackberries for an extra autumnal blast.
  7. Serve with a chunk of crusty sourdough to soak up the juices.

Top Tip!

The key to this simple, tasty recipe is to use good quality sausages. We love Brand's Larder pork and apple sausages from along the road at East Fortune Farm.

Signing off for a while...

Day 5 of the new year and we’re in another lockdown. Not where any of us want to be (especially in the depths of winter in Scotland) and certainly the 5 of us are all feeling topsy turvy again. The prospect of virtual school and missing family, friends and ‘normal’ life dreadfully is hitting us all hard. 
⁣
While these little squares have the ability to provide a whole heap of support and a link to the outside world, my relationship with my phone and social media has got a little bit out of whack over the last wee while. These little people need the best version of me to help them through the next few weeks so I’m going ‘cold turkey’ and stepping away for a wee while!
⁣
So, stay safe and good luck. Above all, be kind to yourselves. The light is most definitely at the end of the tunnel, we just need to keep going. Sending love, Lx
