Aren’t you tired of grilling sausages? We were by mid July, so we put the grill away and started eating avocado and tomato sandwiches like it was nobody’s business. But now our freezer is full of beautiful sausages we want to eat..but not grill.
So a sausage bake: whole sausages baked in tomatoes, spices, and balsamic. They are delicious with a side of green beans, and roasted potatoes. And you can prepare the dish the night before, and bake the next day.
Sausage bake with Tomatoes – 6 servings
6 pork sausages
1 can diced canned tomatoes, drained
1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
2 sprigs of fresh thyme
2 tablespoons minced parsley
1/2 tablespoon dried oregano
1 garlic clove, minced
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
Lightly oil a deep baking dish, lay sausages snuggly. Drizzle with a little olive oil.
Combine the remaining ingredients in a large bowl, and mix well. Pour over the sausages. Shake the baking dish to evenly distribute. Bake for 30 minutes, check the sausages, turn if needed, and bake for 20 minutes longer.
Pull out of the oven, serve with the baked tomatoes, and a chilled beer.
