Sausage traybake recipe, low-fat sausages, sweet potatoes and apples - what's not to like?

Traybakes or sheet pan dinners are super quick and easy so they are a perfect midweek dinner.

Easy Sausage Recipe

Okay, readers of this blog will know I'm supposed to be trying to lose a bit of weight here (again)!

So whilst my recipe isn't exactly calorie-free as it contains potatoes, the sausages I used are reduced-fat so they are far fewer calories than regular pork sausages.

Easy Midweek Dinner Idea

All you need is a suitably sized non-stick oven tray that's big enough for the ingredients to be spread out evenly.

If you don't have one then you can use one of the disposable foil ones from the supermarket; just be careful that it doesn't bend when removing from the oven. The roasting tray I used was my beloved SCANPAN.

Don't fancy sausages? then this Chicken Traybake is just as easy. Or how about my Pork and Pepper Traybake.

For a veggie sausage traybake just use vegetarian sausages, such as Linda McCartney's although you will need to add them to the potatoes and apples, after say 20 minutes, and not from the beginning of the recipe.

Meal for One

This can easily be cooked for just one person, but if there's more than two of you, just add more of everything, including sausages.

It's important not to overcrowd the tray though, otherwise as it will not cook properly.

Sausage and Apple Tray Bake

Sausage and Apple Tray Bake

Tray bakes are one of the easiest and quickest meals you can make. Throw everything (sausages and veg) onto a tray and bake!
Prep time: 5 MinCook time: 40 MinTotal time: 45 Min


  • olive oil - or vegetable oil
  • 4 - 6 reduced-fat sausages
  • 1 large onion - peeled and cut into wedges
  • 2 sweet potatoes - peeled and cut into chunks
  • 4 small potatoes - skin on and cut into chunks
  • a few fresh sage leaves
  • 2 tablespoons of runny honey
  • sea salt and black pepper
  • 2 eating apples, I used Braeburn - cored and cut into wedges
  • 1/2 a Knorr chicken stock cube - dissolved in just 100 ml hot water
  • freshly chopped flat leaf parsley - leaves only


Preheat the oven to 200C/400F or Gas 6
  1. Put the sausages, onions, sweet potatoes and potatoes into a baking tray and drizzle with a little oil and the runny honey. 
  2. Sprinkle with sea salt and black pepper then give it a mix to coat.
  3. Make sure the sausages are on top of the other ingredients and pop into the oven for 20 minutes (set a timer so you don't forget).
  4. After 20 minutes remove from the oven and spoon off any excess liquid there may be. 
  5. Add the apples and sage leaves then give it all a quick mix.
  6. Now pour in a bit of the stock; enough just to add a bit of moisture (I used 80 ml out of the 100ml). 
  7. Be sure to bring the sausages to the top again so they brown.
  8. Now put it back into the oven for another 20 minutes. 
  9. When it's all cooked nicely sprinkle over the chopped parsley and prepare to dive in.
