One Pan Sausage, Squash, Potato and Red Wine Traybake; a lovely warming dinner for the whole family. Crisp sausages with delicious roasted potatoes and butternut squash in a herby red wine dressing, with hardly any washing up!

Before you say anything, I realise I am potentially sharing an ideal winter dish in April. BUT I don’t care because this meal is incredibly easy, delicious, and I would happily eat it all year round. Sue me. Not all of us want to eat rhubarb and asparagus for every meal this month.

One pan dishes are controversial. Some people love them, or at least love the idea of their simplicity and lack of clean-up time. However, some see right through their front and picture dry, under-seasoned outcomes with unevenly cooked components. Thankfully, this one pan sausage, squash, potato and red wine traybake falls firmly into the former category.

This recipe was conjured up after I watched the Hairy Bikers make a similar dish on their Comfort Food series. Their recipe uses chicken and mushrooms too, but I wanted to keep this dish simple. Plus my fussy dad fears mushrooms more than he fears death, so there was no way I’d get away with that.

It’s currently revision time for me (isn’t it always?) as my final degree exams are less than two weeks away. As a result, no-fuss dinners are on the menu, and this meal is definitely a favourite. It’s so easy. After just a little chopping, you just chuck everything into a big tray and the oven does all the work for you, yay!

Eating this one pan sausage, squash, potato and red wine traybake brings you all the comfort and rustic flavour of a Sunday roast, with just half the time and effort involved. Roasting the vegetables in a red wine dressing ensures they are wonderfully soft, flavourful and that everything stays moist even as the sausages crisp up. This isn’t the kind of meal you reluctantly swallow as your mouth cries out for sauce, I promise you that! I mean don’t get me wrong, if you’re one of those people who puts ketchup or hot sauce on everything, go for it. You do you, boo.

Have I gotten it into your head yet that you need to cook this?? Crispy sausages, soft roasted root vegetables and an excuse to put alcohol in your mouth. It’s probably even good for you. So there. Go. Do it. It’s delicious.

You’ll need to start by preheating your oven – 220 degrees for conventional ovens or 200 degrees for fan ovens – and looking out a large baking tray or roasting tin.

Peel a small/medium butternut squash and chop it into 2cm cubes. I find it easiest to slice the squash in half right down the middle horizontally, use a knife to slice the thick skin off, cut it into thick slices (removing any seeds where possible) and then cubing it. Try to use a nice, sharp knife for this, butternut squash can be tough to slice!

Chop some new potatoes into 2cm cubes as well. You don’t need to peel these if you don’t want to, I’m usually too lazy to do so!

Peel an onion and slice it into wedges. You can use just about any kind of onion in this recipe. These soften up wonderfully in the oven.

Toss all of these vegetables, along with some unpeeled garlic cloves, into your roasting tin.

Add some red wine, water, a little oil, herbs and seasoning to the tin and give it all a good stir.

Place 8-12 sausages on top of the seasoned vegetables, or about 2-3 sausages per person. You can use any kind of sausages you like in this recipe, I often use pork. I’ve had great results with turkey as well though, and I’m sure vegetarian sausages would be yummy too!

Bake in the oven for 25 minutes.

Cut two small eating apples into 1-2cm slices and add them to the tin. We add them at this stage so that they don’t turn to total mush in the hot oven! Thinner slices get lovely and soft while thicker slices retain a little crunch.

Add a table spoon each of maple syrup or honey, vinegar, and a little pinch of dried chilli flakes to the tin also.

Give everything a good stir, and turn the sausages over.
