    New potatoes have thin, wispy skins and a crisp, waxy texture. They are young potatoes and…

    Probably the most widely-used oil in cooking, olive oil is pressed from fresh olives. It's…

  • 8 plump sausages (choose Dad's favourite)
  • 3 rounded tbsp medium-cut Seville orange marmalade (or whatever type you have)
  • 2 tbsp wholegrain mustard
  • 150ml sweet cider



    Cider is an alcoholic beverage made from the fermented juice of apples. Apple orchards were…

  • a few rosemary sprigs



    Rosemary's intense, fragrant aroma has traditionally been paired with lamb, chicken and game…


  1. Preheat your oven to fan 180C/conventional 200C/gas 6. Cut the potatoes into halves or quarters depending on their size and put them into a large roasting tin. Drizzle with the olive oil and roast for 10 minutes.

  2. Take the tin out of the oven and snuggle the sausages in between the potatoes so they sit on the bottom of the tin. Now roast for another 15 minutes, turning the sausages over at half time so they brown all over.

  3. While you’re waiting for the sausages to cook, gently heat the marmalade, mustard and cider in a small pan, stirring all the time until the marmalade has melted. Increase the heat and boil for a few minutes until reduced by about half.

  4. Pour the sauce over the sausages and potatoes and toss gently together. Scatter the rosemary sprigs on top, return to the oven and cook for a further 10 minutes until golden brown and sticky with the glaze. Sprinkle with salt and coarsely ground black pepper before serving.

love this. bulked out with squash, onion, carrot and parsnip makes a great one dish meal. I make extra sauce to go on the table for anyone that wants it.

Excellent easy recipe. Went down well with the whole family. Stuck to the original recipe but cooked a little longer in the oven. Definitely one to make again.

Family enjoyed this but I took sausages out half way through and dried fried them for extra colour, before putting them back in with some extra veg (onion, mushrooms, peppers, courgettes). Next time would probably halve the marmalade (used homemade which tends to have a stronger flavour).

Delicious recipe to which I added carrots and a red onion. I struggled to get the sausages to brown much. It was very tasty so I'll definitely make again but brown the sausages separately.

I am sorry to say that I just did not like this. A mixture of bitter and sweet all at the same time and not in a good way. A waste of quality bangers. Try the Sausage Caserole with Garlic toast as a much more tastey alternative.

I love this recipe to bits and since the first time, i've made it loads! i add carrotts, parsnips, red onion and Pancetta too to make it expra special! The first time i made it i had no cider but i had lager and apple juice (sounds mad i know) so i thought, hmm...cider/Lager both fizzy, got apple juice so tried it out feeling risky and it was dee-lish! I make sure i always have a spare bottle of cider in the cupboard now for this dish only but wouldn't hesitate to use the ol' lager again! Really gorgeous! Oh,..i have it with steamed cabbage and leek mixed with worcester sauce for a little kick! Ace recipe! :)

This meal went down brilliantly with my partner and his mates when we watched the footie. changed marmalade for honey and added a little chicken stock. Adding vegetables like courgette and onions made it more of a whole meal. second time i made it, added bacon aswell for a bit of a difference.

Awesome were the words used when we had this for tea, my other half thought it could do with some carrots and parnips we will try next time..... drank the left over cider too!
