I agree with others, recipe probably need a touch more oil. The timing worked well. I did roast potatoes separately. Husband said “the mushrooms were a bit tasteless” - what mushrooms?! He meant the sprouts ....think I will cook them traditionally next time! Would make again and up the variety of vegetables to replace potatoes and sprouts. The herbs added at the halfway point did not seem to add to the flavour. But good and saved on saucepans!

I didn't think there was enough olive oil used in this recipe, the outcome seemed quite dry and stuck together. Also I thought the vegetables actually needed a lot longer than what was advised (with occasional turning). Otherwise, very filling recipe. Vegetables were nice, pigs in blankets were nice, I'd probably boil the potatoes first just to give them a bit of crisp by the time they go into the oven.

I love the idea of this recipe but my biggest mistake was to stick to it exactly! Even though I used a lower than suggested oven temperature, the onions and sprouts became somewhat burnt! As well as reducing the cooking time for many of the ingredients, next time I would use more olive oil, as the mix with the chutney was not runny enough - everything seemed to stick! Nevertheless, whilst not looking great, the end product was quite tasty.

Looks simple - but when do you put the herbs in?

Thanks for pointing this out. We've added it to the method. It goes in along with the sausages.
