Baked sausage and potatoes

If you have never tried a one-pot-dinner, you should! They’re so easy and so yummy. And they leave you free to do other things with your evening instead of standing over the stove, that is once you’re done with the prep work.

avocado looks so good against against everything!

This is an adaptation of the one I did a few weeks ago with chicken. I used beef sausages this time, the kind they make fresh in the butcheries. Still referencing the Dani Spies video and with a little help from the baby, read on to see how mine turned out.   

whoa! really blurry photo! didn’t have another one though (-_-)

I arranged the sausages, potatoes, 1 large onion cut into chunks, one bulb of garlic in whole cloves and one large carrot cut into chunky pieces for colour

cut a lemon into four pieces and stick them in as well

Then the seasoning. Sprinkled salt and pepper. Then, combined 4 tablespoons cooking oil, a tablespoon of dried thyme and 3 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar. Poured it in as evenly as possible.

colours looking nice

Then placed in the oven uncovered at 220°C for one hour.

in the oven

After an hour it was cooked but too dry. I quickly thought adding stock and putting it back in a oven for a few minutes would fix it so I went to the fridge to grab some. There was no stock of any kind (O_o)…

I was holding my daughter at the time so I asked her what she thought I should do. She pointed at the passion fruit juice in the door and I thought why not!! I mixed it with water, about a cup total, half and half. added it to the sausages and put them back in the oven for 15 minutes.

in the mean time, I prepared some avocado to serve on the side
and there it is!

I don’t like the sausages very much though

Yeah, those sausages were not that great. If you decide to try this use sausages that you like. Otherwise everything else was excellent, very juicy. The passion fruit juice added a little flavour of it’s own that worked out really well.

I don’t know if I’ve said this before, but if you have never tasted garlic that’s been roasted whole in the oven, you are really missing out!! (^_^)
