  • Suitably Sized Baking Tray
  • Small Pot (to mix sauce)
  • Sharp Knife & Chopping Board
  • Spatula/Turner


Honey Mustard Sauce

  • 2 tbsp Dijon Mustard
  • 2 tbsp Honey
  • 2 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1 tsp Garlic, minced
  • Salt & Black Pepper, to taste

Tray Bake

  • 8-9 Pork Sausages
  • 15-20 Baby Potatoes, sliced in half
  • 3 small Red Onions, Quartered
  • 1-2 Apples, sliced into thick wedges (see notes)
  • 1 bulb of Fennel, sliced (see notes)
  • few sprigs of fresh Rosemary and Thyme


  • In a bowl, combine 2 tbsp dijon mustard, honey and olive oil, 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar, 1 tsp garlic and a good pinch of salt and pepper. Place to one side.
  • In a suitably sized tray, add all of your tray bake ingredients and combine with your sauce. Stab the sausages a few times, then pop in the oven at 190C/375F for 20mins, just until the sausages start to brown.
  • Take out the oven and slot in your apple wedges. Flip your sausages and pop back in the oven for another 15-20mins, or until the sausages and nicely browned and the sauce is sticky. This may take longer, but don't be tempted to turn up the temp as the honey will burn.
  • Plate up and enjoy!



a) Fennel - If you're not keen on fennel, or not sure you'd like it, please sub for a pepper/capsicum. Fennel has a very powerful and distinctive taste, quite similar to liquorice. It goes beautifully with pork, but will ruin the whole dish if you don't like it. 
b) Sausages - As the sausages are the star of the show I recommend investing in some good quality ones! Cumberland sausages are my fave.
c) Apple - I use green apples as I like the sharp taste with the pork and sweet honey. However, you can use any sweeter variety if you fancied!
d) Herbs - I strong recommend using fresh for this recipe, dried won't infuse the sauce particularly well. But, if that's all you have I don't recommend more than a tsp of each (dried herbs are much stronger than fresh).
e) Calories - Based on using 17 potatoes, 1 apple and 8 sausages and sharing between 3 people.
