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
- 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.
