Delicious. A wonderful stand-by when I want proper food but don't feel like cooking.

Took at least twice as long as stated on a much higher heat, the sausages didn't taste of the extra flavourings (and they were good quality sausages which I have had before), there was no stickiness and little flavour. The juices in the bottom were watery. No idea why this didn't work for me.

Update from last post - used 1 red pepper and 1 yellow pepper but kept all the other ingredients the same. Cooked 35/40 minutes as other people suggested. Also added a can of cannoli beans to make it easy one pan meal. Really good.

Really tasty. Next time though I'll be more generous with the balsamic and honey so will have more sticky sauce. Only had garlic bread but will use mash in future.

Such an easy way to make a delicious meal from just a few ingredients. We ate ours in the garden with new potato salad and it worked just as well as the "winter warmer" version with heaps of steaming mash. Always a good one!

I made this with chicken sausages (the chipolata style ones) - really delicious, easy to make and all on one roasting tin! I served mine with homemade soda bread to soak up the juices. Lovely!

A really yummy and tasty dish, surprisingly so. I did fry off the sausages before I put them in with all the other ingredients, so that they looked a bit more roasted, also, the 1st time I cooked this dish I omitted the tomatoes and I do think it tastes all the more richer for not adding them. Served this with waitrose ready made garlic mash and garlic wilted spinach. A keeper :)

This recipe was delicious. I, like most other commenters have said, cooked the sausages for 40 minutes instead of 20 and they were perfect. The honey and balsamic really add flavour to a classic English dish. Me and my family really enjoyed it, so please try this recipe. It's so easy!

very easy recipe though I left the sausages in for 40 minutes so they browned and looked more appetising. served with a mash of parsnips,sweet potato and potato-very nice!

I loved this recipe. So quick and easy to throw in the oven. I added some new Potatoes and Butternut squash that I par boiled first which made it a lovely meal. Also a clove of garlic adds a bit of depth.

Versatile and easy recipe, but more than that it tastes yummy and deserves its 5 star rating. Have enjoyed reading all the comments for additions and ideas. My own contribution would be to add little Chantenay carrots.
I too had to cook for longer - and I'd halved my sausages. The dish cooked well in 35 - 40 mins, turning everything midway.
This dish will certainly enter the family repertoire - we love oven roasted veggies of this kind - and we look forward to eating it again. I'll add too that I sometimes have to cook for a
Coeliac , a veggie, and regular meat eaters at the same table, and with two trays to vary the sausages this won't be difficult. .

A great easy dish for a crowd. Have cooked this recipe (as written) twice for around 25 people - all said it was delicious. Don't skimp and use cheap sausages - it's not worth it. The mustard mash was a nice accompaniment and the fresh thyme aroma travelled through the conference centre whetting people's appetites. Cook for at least 40 mins.

Delicious - the balsamic made it a bit different! Quick, easy and tasty supper - I added mushrooms as I had some I needed to use and the butter bean addition was a really good one! Great one-pot I'll definitely be repeating.

Tasty! I deliberately left out the thyme sprigs as I used chilli flavoured sausages. It was the first time I have tried this recipe, so easy, I also served it with a jacket potato and it went down well. Might well use mash next time though.
Added on 29/10/2013. We have since substituted lamb chops for the sausages and omitted the honey and thyme. Cool! Today the other half made this dish, using our local butchers chilli sausages and added mushrooms and topped the mustard mash with a fried egg. Seemed right somehow. Is there no end to this very versatile dish?

This is a really easy recipe and very tasty. I added various other veggies including mushrooms, beans and green peppers (basically the contents of the fridge). The sausages took much longer to cook than stated so I finished them off under the grill. I'll definitely be cooking this again. Thank you :-)

Fab! Use good sausages and cook for longer to really caramelise veg and brown sausages.
