Sausage and Fennel Tray Bake

This is such a beautiful, tasty one-tray dish where trimmed, quartered and roasted, fragrant fennel bulbs are enjoyed alongside simple store-bought porkies (gluten-free please, if you can!). I simply have nothing more to add in this intro, other than to encourage you to enjoy this delicious dinner option which is only 2.9g carbs per serving xxx

  • Preheat the oven to 200°C (fan oven). This is 220°C for conventional ovens (or 425°F / gas mark 7).
  • Trim the fennel bulbs and set aside the little fronds. These will burn, so they should be removed. However, do not throw them away - instead keep them to be used as a fresh garnish later.
  • Trim and quarter the two fennel bulbs* lengthways into equal sized pieces. Place into a bowl along with the 8 porkies. Add the olive oil and garlic powder to the bowl and gently toss the whole lot to evenly coat. (Work gently as you don't want the fennel falling apart.)
    *The yield of edible fennel I ended up using (after trimming) was 270g (9.5oz).
  • Spread the mixture out onto a large, greased baking tray and bake in the oven for 25 minutes. I always rotate the tray halfway through and also use tongs to turn the pieces to ensure even cooking.
  • Serve scattered with sea salt flakes and freshly ground black pepper. Sprinkle over the fennel fronds you set aside earlier for a pretty, fresh finish!
