  1. Preheat the oven to 180ºC/350ºF/gas four.
  2. Halve the cherry tomatoes; peel and finely slice the garlic, and tear the bread into bite-sized chunks.
  3. Place it all in a 30cm x 35cm roasting tray, pour in the beans and their juice, drizzle with one tablespoon each of olive oil and red wine vinegar, add a splash of water, and mix it all together.
  4. Quickly pinch and twist each chipolata (sausage) in the middle to make it into two mini ones, then randomly dot them around your bake, lightly pressing them into the beans and tomatoes.
  5. Roast for 45 minutes, or until everything is golden, bubbling and delicious.

This recipe is versatile too, as you can swap out ingredients for what you have left in the house.

Cleaning tip

Once you have cleared the sausage bake from the tin, soak it in hot, soapy water.

If you leave the residue food to stick to the tin, it’s only going to be harder to wash it up later.

How to store leftovers

The UK Food Standards Agency (FSA) recommended letting cooked food cool down at room temperature.

Then, within an hour or two, transfer the cooled food into the fridge.

“Check your fridge is cold enough using a fridge thermometer,” the FSA said. “Your fridge should be 5C or below.”

What about if you want to freeze leftovers from the sausage bake? “Leftovers and homemade goods should be frozen as soon as possible,” the FSA said.

However, you must cool the cooked food first at room temperature before putting it into the freezer.

When it comes to defrosting the sausage bake for another day, you need to defrost it inside of the fridge and then eat it within 24 hours.
