For a recipe with such few ingredients it is very tasty. I used wholegrain mustard instead of the seeds, threw in a glass of white wine, and used butternut squash instead of pumpkin. Oh and Onion Bisto gravy. It took a long time to evenly brown the sausages this way though, took an hour in total. I would do this recipe again but grill the sausages first.

You could also use butternut squash or sweet potato with veggie gravy or onion gravy!

Did this for the 2nd time last night... went down well once again. This time I kept the gravy seperate and we each poured over as much as we preferred (my 8-year-old included). Also added Butternut... yummy!

Love this, make it all the time - normally after we've come back from mountain biking. Have used either pumpkin or butternut squash, may try sweet potato after seeing other comments.

So so easy and very tasty. Did the mustard version which was lovely, will try with caraway next time. Did take longer to cook - approx 45-50 mins to get nice & brown
