Roasted Sausages and Root Vegetables with Sweet Chilli Glaze

A great bung-it-all-in-the-oven main course, this and perfect Saturday night family fodder with a green salad.  You peel and chop root veg - whatever you have in the house, I used a parsnip, a couple of carrots and an onion.  Toss in a tablespoon of olive oil and scatter on a non-stick or parchment-lined baking sheet.  Add some good sausages (we like Porkinson's Bangers, but good butcher's sausages at least, please!) and rub a little oil onto them too - this is fun........Now, bake at 180C for half an hour until the veg is tender and the sausages nice and brown.  Give everything a good stir, turn the bangers over, and then brush on a good couple of tablespoons of sweet chilli sauce to glaze everything.  Return to the oven for a final 10 minutes, then dish up, mixing the melted sauce into everything as you serve.  A dish of crisp, simply-dressed lettuce leaves is a nice accompaniment, as is a glass of Old Noll ale from my boss's own micro-brewery, Cherwell Valley.   photo courtesy of
