I know those midweek healthy dinners can be eyed up with suspicion sometimes, especially when the vegetables aren’t hidden. But there’s one never-fail option that you should definitely take – sausages. This all-in-one sausage tray bake is almost like a roast dinner without the faff.
Then there’s the sticky sauce that lifts the whole thing. Any doubters on marmalade out there, please give this a go before you write it off. I don’t like marmalade on toast but I love this. It’s a fab shortcut to sweet sticky sauce and kids will give it the thumbs up!

FAQs about Simple Sticky Sausage Tray Bake
Can I use different kinds of sausages?
Yes. Go ahead and try chicken sausages if you don’t eat pork, or veggie sausages will be great too. Just check timings and adjust the instructions if you need to.
Will this meal keep for leftovers?
Absolutely. This recipe services four, so you might have leftovers if you don’t finish it all.
Can I change the vegetable choices?
You can choose any equivalent of root veg, which always roasts the best. But always go for what you and your family enjoys the most, bearing in mind some ingredients may need less time in the oven.
Does it matter what kind of marmalade I use?
Nope, any type is fine. Even if you think you don’t like marmalade (I would never eat it on toast ordinarily) please give it a go in this. It’s just such an easy shortcut to heaps of taste.
TIPS FOR THIS TRAY BAKED SAUSAGE RECIPE
- If you can get hold of pre chopped bags of vegetable mix that contain the same veg, these are a great shortcut.
- If you’re cooking for young children, omit the salt.
- Don’t mention the marmalade to the children! They will love it to eat but, if I told them what it was? Probably not!

Simple Sticky Sausage Tray Bake
This Simple Sticky Sausage Tray Bake is comfort food packaged in one healthy meal that is super easy and so delicious. A winner for the whole family!
- 2 Onions Peeled and cut into chunks
- 3 Carrots Peeled and cut into chunks
- 2 Large Leeks Washed well and cut into large chunks
- 4 Large Baking Potatoes Cut into large chunks
- 500 g Pork sausages
- 1 tbsp Olive oil
- 1 tbsp Dried thyme
- Salt and pepper
- 100 g Marmalade
Preheat the oven to 200C.
Put the vegetables and sausages onto a baking tray and toss with the olive oil, thyme and salt and pepper.
Bake for 45 minutes or until just starting to turn golden.
Flip the sausages, spoon over the marmalade and cook for a final 15 minutes.
Use whichever sausages you like. The cooking times are for large, thick sausages. If you are using thinner, chipolata type sausages, they will take less time to cook, so roast your veggies for one hour (in total) but add your sausages during this time, according to pack instructions.
This is one of my favourite kitchen hacks. Sometimes supermarkets stock bags of these vegetables pre chopped (Aldi and Waitrose both do I know but not all year sadly!) If you can get hold of these, substitute say 2 bags for the chopped vegetables in the recipe. The one I use includes potatoes. If yours doesn't, you can also add these in separately.
