  1. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Toss the sausages and potatoes in a roasting tin with the oil. Roast for 30 mins, then mix the mustard and honey together and stir into the tin. Roast for 10 mins more until sticky and cooked.

  2. Meanwhile, mix together the dressing ingredients with some seasoning – the onion will soften slightly in the vinegar.

  3. When the sausages are ready, thickly slice them, then mix back in with the potatoes. Tip the spinach onto plates, pile the sticky sausage slices and potatoes on top, then spoon over the dressing.

I cut down the honey and still found it a bit sweet, and I didn't add all the extra oil and no one felt it needed it. So overall tasty but could stand a little tweaking. :-)

Really quick and easy, although would use less honey next time as found it a little too sickly -but the children loved it!

Very easy to do & tasty. I cooked the sweet potatoes for too long so they went a bit mushy but still tasted good.

This was fast and delicious. Even the children enjoyed it (was worried they would find the mustard too strong). Nice to have a different way to serve sausages. Also enjoyed having a change from normal potato wedges.
