STICKY MARMALADE SAUSAGE BAKE (VEGAN)

This is one I promised to share and I finally got around to it.

The sticky marinade in this bake is sweet and spicy and rather fabulous. 

Everything is coated in it, but it tends to sink to the bottom while cooking, but that's ok, everything is well coated and as long as it's scooped up with the sausages and vegetables life is good.

My husband spent ages trying to make sure he got all and I mean all of the marinade out of the dish, including the little bits at the edges that almost turned into toffee.

We loved this bake.

MARMALADE


The secret to the sticky sauce is marmalade.

The marmalade is mixed with soy sauce and spices to make the most heavenly glaze.

To make the marmalade more spreadable, especially if it's just come out of the fridge, warm it in the microwave or in a small pot.

This will help when it comes to brushing it on the sausages and veg.

VEGAN SAUSAGES


I added 9 sausages to this casserole for 3 of us, but you can add 12 for 4 people or 15 for 5 people. 

You can add extra veg and make more marinade too. You may need a bigger casserole dish.

I used Linda McCartney sausages in my bake, which are a favourite in this house, but you can use your favourite sausages.

SAUSAGE BAKE VEGETABLES

I included mushrooms, red onions and beetroot in this bake. 

It was supposed to have parsnips too but I totally forgot to add them. You could add parsnips if you like.

The large closed cup mushrooms I used, were peeled and cut in half. You want big pieces of mushroom for roasting as they do shrink as they cook.

I used red onion for it's sweetness when roasted. I peeled it, cut it in half and then into thick slices.

The beetroot was peeled, halved and cut into thick slices too.

The earthiness and sweetness of these vegetables worked really well in the bake.

WHY IS STICKY SAUSAGE BAKE SO GOOD?

  1. It has so much flavour.
  2. It's a healthy bake with plenty of veg and protein from the sausages.
  3. It's easy to make. 
  4. It's all made in one dish.
  5. There's no pre-cooking.
  6. It can be varied with different vegetables.
  7. It can be kept mild and full of flavour or you can edge up the heat with some chilli.
  8. It's easy enough to make midweek, but makes a great weekend dish.
  9. It's good with mashed potato, boiled potatoes or roast potatoes.
  10. It's a good excuse to get the gravy going.

HOW TO SERVE STICKY SAUSAGE BAKE


I served this sausage casserole with boiled potatoes, spring greens (cabbage) and onion gravy (I used Bisto Gravy Granules, which are suitable for vegans), but you can serve this bake in so many ways.

Here are a few ideas of how to serve it:

  1. With roast potatoes, vegetables and gravy.
  2. On toasted rolls or pitta with hummus and spinach.
  3. With mashed potatoes and a fresh tomato sauce.
  4. With a baked potato & cheese.
  5. As part of a cooked breakfast with fried potatoes, tomatoes and baked beans.
  6. With chips and peas.
  7. With couscous or bulgur wheat.
  8. With flatbread and hummus.
  9. With buttered crusty bread.
  10. With a fork and a smile.

HOW LONG WILL STICKY MARMALADE SAUSAGE BAKE KEEP?


You can keep cooled leftovers in the fridge for 3-4 days in an airtight container and reheat in the microwave or the oven.


WHAT TO DO WITH LEFTOVERS?


If and I say if, you have leftovers, why not serve them for lunch in a sandwich or wrap with salad.

You could also chop it up and serve it through couscous or as a pasta salad for lunch.

  3. Love this recipe! I like the flexibility of being able to easily swap ingredients, increase heat, etc. I've recently been getting into the Beyond Meat sausages, glad to have another idea for them.

  5. My daughters prefer vegan recipes so I was happy to find this recipe. They loved the sticky sauce and so did the whole family. The recipe was so easy to follow and yummy. I used a vegan sausage from a local grocer with delicious results.

  12. Wow this looks delicious - I love your sausage bakes - have tried some but they never crisp up so well in my oven but I am tempted to try this one because marmalade marinade sounds delicious (even though I don't like marmalade on toast I quite like it in cooking). Hope you are doing ok in Scotland with all the Corona Virus and your tier is not too high!

    1. Hey Johanna, hope you do try it. We are ok. In quite a high tier, but vaccines are on the way. I should have had mine by spring. Quite rightly they are starting with NHS and elderly first. Tell that man of yours I have stovies in the slow cooker.
