Venison Sausage & Black Pudding Tray Bake Recipe
Summer in Scotland is a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it season. Even now, mid-August, when I look out the window I see grey clouds hanging heavy across the mountains, and can smell rain on the chill air. This means that summer cooking doesn’t get much attention from our kitchen, and I’m finding myself already preparing autumnal dishes. My venison sausage and black pudding tray back is the very epitome of autumnal food, with apples, plenty of garlic and onion, and potatoes too.
That being said, this week a heatwave is expected to hit the UK, although the temperatures will remain quite mild in Scotland (around 20-25C). Though rain is forecast for every day! It’s hard to think of bright, summery salads to make when it’s raining outside, and dark and gloomy. You can understand why I’m so drawn to comfort cooking, and comfort food. And is there anything more comforting than an easy sausage tray bake recipe?
Being a tray bake, this recipe is incredibly easy to prepare. After pre-boiling the potatoes for five minutes, everything goes into the oven and 45 minutes later? A delicious dinner. Perfection.
If you’ve never tried venison or venison sausage, I highly recommend it. It’s a lot lighter, and leaner than traditional pork sausages, with a slightly gamey taste. Black pudding (another type of sausage) on the other hand has a rich, slightly sweet flavour. When these tasty ingredients are paired together with apples and onions, it’s a perfectly balanced traybake which will appeal to even the fussiest eater!
