One tray sausage and apple bake

Simple meals don’t have to be boring 

I have been on a mission to make simple and tasty meals. I aim to create recipes that can be prepared and cooked quickly on a busy weeknight. We all struggle to make healthy and delicious meals while keeping on top of everything else in life. So this recipe is designed to be healthy, delicious and easy to make. You can cook this meal on a single tray in the oven. The preparation takes no more than 20 minutes and is portioned to feed four adults.

Simple and tasty 

This week’s recipe is for a sausage and apple bake. Pork and apple are a match made in heaven so I didn’t reinvent the wheel with this one. 

This meal is slightly higher in fat than I would normally make so if you are tracking macros keep that in mind. I like to use plain for sausages for this recipe, that way the flavours from the honey, sage and rosemary take front and centre. 

New Zealand honey 

New Zealand has amazing honey, we are known for Manuka honey mostly but we have lots of other types of honey that have amazing flavours. One of my favourites to use is Earthbound Pohutukawa honey the honey has a flavour will remind you of butterscotch. 

The Pohutukawa is known as the New Zealand Christmas tree because of its bright red flowers that bloom around Christmas time.

The flavour makes me feel like it is summertime. With the weather getting warmer I love the taste of things to come.
