Sticky date and sausage traybake recipe


  • 400g baby potatoes, halved or quartered if large
  • 200g brussels sprouts, halved
  • 1 red onion, peeled and cut into 8 wedges
  • 150g Medjool dates, pitted and torn in half
  • 8 good-quality sausages
  • 5g oregano
  • 3 thyme sprigs
  • 65ml olive oil
  • 2 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp wholegrain mustard
  • 2 garlic cloves, grated
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp nigella seeds
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 10g parsley, roughly chopped


  • STEP 1

    Heat the oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Line a large roasting tray with baking paper for easy clean-up. Fill the tray with the potatoes, sprouts, onion and dates. Nestle the sausages on top, then sprinkle over the oregano and thyme.

  • STEP 2

    Mix the oil, vinegar, maple syrup, mustard, garlic, cinnamon, nigella seeds and cumin in a small jug. Season well with salt and pepper. Pour this over the sausages and vegetables, massaging it all with your hands to coat well.

  • STEP 3

    Cover with foil and roast for 30 mins. Remove the foil and toss the tray to shuffle everything around, then increase the heat to 220C/200C fan/gas 7. Cook for another 25-30 mins, or until sticky, golden and charred at the edges.

  • STEP 4

    Top with a sprinkling of parsley and serve straight from the tray for everyone to help themselves.
