Okay readers of this blog will know I'm supposed to be trying to lose a bit of weight here - so whilst my recipe isn't exactly calorie free as it contains potatoes, the Skinni Pork Sausages I used are from West Coast Foods and are reduced fat and high in protein.
There's certainly no faffing about with this recipe, it's ready to serve in just 45 minutes. Pork Sausages, Onions and a mixture of Sweet Potatoes and Regular Potatoes, Apples and Sage; what's not to like?
The oven tray I used was a SCANPAN; you can read my review here.
All you need is a suitably sized non-stick oven tray that's big enough for the ingredients to be spread out. If you don't have one then you can use one of the disposable foil ones from the supermarket; just be careful that is doesn't bend when removing from the oven.
If there's more than two of you just add more of everything including sausages; and of course you can cook this just for one person.

Having been asked to be part of the Collective Crock Challenge meaning myself and a few other bloggers had to name an ingredient that we'd like to see included in the Collective Crock-Pot recipe.
I was asked to name the main ingredient and I said sausages. I say there's nothing like a proper good quality sausage; sausages in a Crock-Pot say winter is here. None of us knew what ingredient each other had said and the people at Crock-Pot came up with this collective cooks recipe.

Crocktober is an exciting (and rather tasty), 30-day event to promote and celebrate all things slow cooking. As part of the Crocktober recipe challenge, here's my latest sausage Crock-Pot or slow cooker recipe.

Personally I'm not a huge fan of Quorn sausages but their 'Chef's selection are far nicer than the regular ones and make a meat-free meal in next to no time.

But the addition of horseradish turns into something amazing. That alongside caramelised onions and some nice fat sausages and you're really talking!

A week or so ago here in the UK, Summer gave Autumn a miss and went straight back into Winter! And so my sausage casserole or whatever you might want to call it was invented.
I did have sausages in the freezer that along with a good dollop of mashed potato, the perfect cold weather dinner was done.

I made some sausage rolls yesterday, but fancied putting wholegrain mustard in them. They turned out rather nice I must say.
What you need:
1 x 500g pack of ready made puff pastry
450g of good quality sausages - skin removed
Approx. 4 tbsp wholegrain mustard
1 egg - beaten, to glaze
How to do it:
Preheat oven to 220C/200ºC for fan assisted /425F or Gas Mark 7
Cut the pastry in half so it's an easier size to manage. Roll out one half to make an oblong about 0.5mm thick and cut that in half.
Repeat with the other half of the pastry so you now have 4 oblong pieces of pastry. Spread the centre of each pastry piece with some mustard, leaving a border on each long side.
With a sharp knife tidy the edges, cut the roll into equal sized sausage rolls. They can be however long or short if you want cocktail size rolls.
Brush the tops with beaten egg. Make 2-3 slashes in the top of each sausage roll.
Now place the sausage rolls on a baking sheet and bake for approx. 15 minutes until pastry is risen and golden brown, serve either hot or cold.

This amount will serve two greedy people. But you could add a couple more sausages and it would easily serve four.
Cook stirring until the onions have softened - about 10 minutes. Add the mushrooms and cook for a couple more minutes.
