Clever Dinner for Silly Sausages...



Once the cat was out of the bag (so to speak) with the whole concept of oven-bag cookery, there was no stopping me. Sausages, potato curry.... I swear it'll be soup next.

Stay tuned for my 'dessert in a bag' - and why wouldn't lovely Summery stone-fruits tossed in some prosecco and brown sugar and baked be a delicious treat? Then a wee bowl of crumble in the centre of the table and a tub of ice-cream.. and away you go! Oh. I digress.. back to the sausages.

Rustic Sausages in a Bag
1 large oven bag
1/2 kilo of very good quality sausages (or you could use chorizo, don't skimp on the sausages though - as bad sausages are not worth eating)
2 tins of tomatoes (cherry or whole)
1 head of garlic cut down the middle
1 tbsp olive oil
1 red onion cut into chunks
1 tin of chick peas, rinsed and drained
1/2 red pepper cut into chunks
6 baby potatoes, halved
1/2 cup of chicken stock
1/2 cup of chopped fresh herbs (i like basil!) salt and pepper

Put the lot into the bag. Mix about a bit without spilling. Tie bag closed securely. Pop onto oven tray. Pierce two holes near the tied up opening to allow some steam to escape and prevent the bag from gaining pressure. Bake for about an hour in a 400degree oven. Eat with crusty bread and some fruity wine!
