Sausage, Fennel and Potato Traybake 

Sausage, Fennel and Potato Traybake recipe. A simple midweek comforting dish, on the plate within 30 minutes.

The Recipe – Sausage Traybake

This recipe requires minimal preparation and only one roasting dish. It doesn’t get much easier or quick than this. Start by adding sausages and olive oil to a large roasting tray – like this one. Place in the oven to heat up for 5 minutes. This gives the sausages time to release some of their oils and heats up the roasting tray for the other ingredients. The roasting dish should be hot enough that the remaining ingredients sizzle when added. Meanwhile, thinly slice some new potatoes (so they cook in time) and thickly slice a fennel bulb. Add the potatoes and the fennel to the roasting tin with fennel seeds for extra fennel flavour, chilli flakes for some heat and a splash of white wine. Put back into the hot oven for a further twenty minutes or so, and its ready to serve. A simple, delicious and easy dinner. 


  • Use high quality sausages with at least 80% pork.
  • Leave out the chilli flakes for less heat.
  • Use peppers, red onions or apples for extra vegetables.
  • Leftovers will keep for two days in the fridge. 
  • Vegetarian sausages also work well.
