Have Sausage Bake for Breakfast or Dinner
I served this recipe up for an easy dinner on a weeknight. I added a few dollops of yoghurt, plenty of sriracha and a fried egg and it was such a warming and tasty meal.
We've being trying out veggie sausages in different recipes from veggie sausage casserole to vegetarian toad in the hole. I'm not super keen on pork sausages anyway so even though we're not fully vegetarian they're quite a nice alternative.
This bake is not only delicious for dinner but it's also wonderful for a make ahead breakfast. You can chop all of the veg ahead of time and then pop everything on a baking sheet and into the oven in the morning.
To make this sausage bake I simply chopped a couple of potatoes, red peppers and red onions and added to a large bowl then I tossed them with a load of spices including cumin, smoked paprika and aleppo chilli flakes.
Then I spread those vegetables out on a baking sheet, topped with vegetarian sausages and baked until the vegetables were softened and the sausages were cooked.
This Sausage Tray Bake Has So Much Flavour
The mix of spices is so delicious and really brings the whole dish to life. Aleppo pepper is one of my all time favourites, it's a little sweet and smoky and adds an amazing vibrance to dishes.
Veggie Sausage Bake Ingredients:
- Spices: Cumin, coriander, smoked paprika and aleppo pepper all go into making this recipe so flavourful. Add leftover aleppo pepper to these chilli prawns and any extra smoked paprika to this Turkish eggs recipe
- Vegetarian Sausages: Use whatever brand you like. You may need to add them into the bake later depending on how long they take to cook
- Vegetables: You can really go for anything here but I like to stick to a base of potatoes because it keeps this to a one pan meal, then I added red pepper and red onion for that added bit of sweetness
- Greek Yoghurt: Dab on top before serving to help cool off those spices
- Chilli Sauce: If desired, I went with sriracha and it was delicious
