Ingredients for Mary Berry’s Roasted Sausage Supper

10-12 large sausages — herbed tend to have the best flavor

500 grams of new potatoes

2 large onions


2 red peppers

2 cloves of chopped garlic

A couple of sprigs of thyme

Olive oil

Salt and black pepper

White wine

Roasted and ready to eat — yum!


  1. Chop the new potatoes in half, and slice the peeled onions into wedges.
  2. Chop the red peppers into small pieces, not worrying about the size too much.
  3. Chop two cloves of garlic and the sprigs of thyme into tiny pieces.
  4. Prick the middle of each sausage with a fork.
  5. Put all the vegetables, including the garlic and the thyme, into a ziploc plastic bag. Add the sausages. Add approximately two tablespoons of olive oil, and close and seal the bag. Massage the bag so that each vegetable and sausage piece is lightly coated with the oil.
  6. Pour the entire bagful of food into a large roasting tray and spread out. Make sure the sausages are at the top.
  7. Sprinkle salt and pepper over the top of the food, and place the roasting tray in the oven.
  8. Cook at 220C/200C Fan/Gas 7 for 30-40 minutes until everything in the tray is a lovely golden brown.
  9. Turn the sausages over when they are brown, pour some white wine over the top and cook for another 20 minutes.
  10. Remove from the oven and serve while still hot.
You can use a plastic bag like Mary does if you like. I prefer not to as they are terrible for the environment

Comments on the recipe

When I made Mary’s Roasted Sausage Supper, I did not bother putting everything into a plastic ziploc bag, as it was just an added step I didn’t see the need to take.

Instead, I put all the ingredients into the tray, drizzled olive oil over the top and folded and stirred everything around until it was all coated in oil. I poured a little more oil onto everything, stirred the food again making sure the sausages stayed on top, and then put the tray into the oven.

This worked just as well and was just as easy, without the need for using an environmentally-destroying plastic bag.

And yes, Mary is correct, the only thing you will have to clean when you are finished preparing her Roasted Sausage Supper is the tray and any knives and chopping board you used to chop the vegetables.

It really is the easiest dish for dinner or supper for the whole family.

You can also replace half the potatoes with some butternut squash, turnip or sweet potatoes if you would like a little change in the taste now and again. A few Brussels sprouts added to the mix can be nice too.
