  • Skill level: Easy peasy

  • Costs: Cheap as chips

This easy recipe, taken from Nigel's Slater's Simple Suppers, gives your typical sausage and mash dish a tasty twist


  • 8 plump pork sausages
  • 2 tbsp grain mustard
  • 1 tbsp smooth Dijon mustard
  • 3 heaped tbsp runny honey
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice

For the mash

  • 750g carrots
  • a large knob of butter


  1. Set the oven at 200C/ Gas 6. Put the sausages in a roasting tin large enough to take them in a single layer. If they overlap, they won't cook properly. In a bowl mix the mustards, honey and lemon juice. Stir well and pour over all the sausages. Bake for 25 -30 mins, rolling the sausages over in the honey and mustard mixture once or twice, so that they eventually take on a sticky, glossy coat.
  2. To make the mash: trim and scrub the carrots, slice into chunks and pile into a steamer basket or metal colander balanced over a pan of simmering water. Steam, covered, for 15 -20 minutes or until just tender.
    Remove the carrots from the steamer and mash with a generous knob of butter. Divide the mash between 4 plates and pop the sausages on top.
