As Bonfire Night is fast approaching, why not serve up this tasty bangers recipe for the occasion? Juicy sausages are placed on wooden skewers and served with roasted root veggies for a snack that both kids and adults will love.
- 1 medium beetroot
- 2 carrots
- 1 parsnip
- 1 sweet potato
- 2 banana shallots
- 3x15mlsp (3 tablespoons) vegetable oil
- 400g (15oz) pork and apple or traditional pork, chipolatas
- 100g (4oz) butternut squash
- 100g (4oz) caster sugar
- Wooden skewers for serving
Method1 Preheat the oven. 180˚C, Gas Mark 4. Peel and cut the beetroot, carrots, parsnip, sweet potatoes and shallots into long thin sticks, approximately 1cm -1.5cm thick.
2 Place these vegetable sticks into a bowl and add the oil. Season with salt and pepper and mix well then place onto a baking tray and roast in the oven for 15-20 minutes until golden brown all over.
3 Meanwhile, cook the sausages on griddle pan (if you have one) to give a really nice flavour and appearance to the sausages. Once cooked, keep the sausages warm until ready for serving.
4 Divide the butternut squash in half and reserve the wider end for serving. Peel the other half and using a melon baller shape the flesh into round balls. Blanch the balls in boiling salted water for 6-8 minutes and then drain on kitchen paper.
5 Make a caramel by placing the sugar into a clean pan and adding enough water to just cover the sugar. Bring to the boil and continue to cook until you have reached a light caramel colour. Remove from the heat and allow to cool for 2-3 minutes.
6 Secure each blanched butternut squash ball on to a small wooden skewer or cocktail stick and then dip, one at a time, into the caramel carefully coating each ball. Stand each ball onto oiled, greaseproof paper or a marble slab whilst completing the process.
7 Use the remaining half of squash as a base for serving the sausages and candied balls (you may need to shave a slice off the end so that it will stand upright). Secure each sausage onto a wooden skewer and then stick all of the sausages into the bottom of the squash finishing off with the candied squash balls placed head down around the outside.
8 Place the roasted root vegetables into a serving dish and serve all together for a great sausage treat on bonfire night.
