How to make our Bonfire Night Sausage Recipe

Take a roasting tin, throw in your sausages, bang them in the oven for around 20 minutes.

Then remove from the oven toss them in the sticky gooey marinade (made up by mixing the salsa and honey together) and then put them back in the oven for a final 10 minutes to go lovely and sticky and cooked through properly.

Whilst the sausages cook, sizzle up a pan of caramelised onions, just simply fried in butter and sprinkled with dark brown sugar and after 30 minutes in the pan they’ll be perfect!
