Top Tips

Although you can make this in advance and leave them to marinate you really don’t need to for long. Five minutes is usually more than enough. As they bake the flavours will taste wonderful.

If you want to be quick, of course, make the marinade and mix it with the sausages and put it in the fridge until needed.

It might seem silly to add honey and maple syrup but I can promise it really is worth the extra little ingredient.
