Can you oven bake sausages?

Yes, but for great flavour brown them first in a hot pan, its only takes a few minutes but is well worth the time spent!

For this recipe we recommend using thin sausages or smaller breakfast sausages. With sausage it really is worth being the best quality, local ones you can afford we love Havoc Pork Farm sausages! Prior to oven baking with highly recommend browning the sausages in a large pan with butter and oil. Then use that same pan to wilt the spinach in for 30 seconds, allowing it to coat in the delicious pan juices.

Notes

Note 2: We love portobello mushrooms, you can substitute for whatever’s available in your area but go for a larger flat variety if you can.
