I don’t often do challanges or quizzes, just don’t seem to have time, but one of Inspiration’s last challanges really appealed to me (thank you, Tandy, you know how I’ve been needing some sort of inspiration!)
Tandy challanged us to make something savoury using oranges and honey.
Well, yummy idea – what’s not to like about sweet fruity flavours with savoury meat; or at least, that was my take on it.
So for supper on Sunday evening, for which I had scheduled bangers and mash, I made these instead:
Baked Pork Sausages with an Orange and Honey Glaze
1/4 cup of olive oil
4 Tbsp of honey
1 heaped tsp of English mustard
juice of 1 small orange
1 tsp mustard seeds
1 packet of good quality pork sausages (Woollies is my favourite)
- Set your oven to 180*c
- Grease an oven-proof baking dish
- Whisk together all the ingredients except the sausages until well-blended and emulsified
- Roll each sausage in the glaze to coat them thoroughly, and arrange in the dish
- Pour the remaining glaze over the sausages
- Cover with tinfoil and bake for about 20 minutes
- Remove the tinfoil and spoon the glaze over the sausages – it should be thick and sticky
- Bake for another 10 minutes until the sausages are golden brown and cooked through
I served these with a baked potato (wrapped in tinfoil and baked in the oven at the same time as the sausages) and steamed green beans in a smidgeon of butter and a squeeze of lemon juice – a perfect light supper. Couldn’t be easier!
I often bake sausages instead of frying them, I find they come out so much nicer, as the skins don’t split, and of course there’s less clean-up! Baking them can make the skins tough, though, so cooking them in a sauce of some sort works well. Sometimes I make a tomato sauce, but this sticky sweet sauce was delicious! I’ll be adding this to my list of regular easy dishes – thanks, Tandy!!
ALways looks delicious!!
Thank you, Lisa!
Wow,this really looks and sounds very good!! I made something meatless for this challnge so will be posting it on Sunday or monday for Meatless Monday!
Looking forward to seeing something meatless with these ingredients!

These look fantastic. We have plenty of oranges here, and I am always looking for new ways to use them…this one is going on the list!
Thanks, Chica! It’s orange season here at the moment, I’m pigging out on them 🙂
I don’t think I will have time to do Tandy’s challenge this week. 😦 Your orange and honey porkies look incredible! Great flavours. I cannot wait to get my hands on some pork sausages again – Woolies, here I come!
That’s right – you’re on your way home! I can imagine you will shop til you drop, especially at Woolies 🙂
Ooh, they really do look amazing. I’m doing this challenge tonight 🙂
I can’t wait to see what fabulous dish you come up with!
wow, I have never thought of baking sausages! Thank you for the inspiration and for taking part in the challenge 🙂
It’s a pleasure!! Thank you to you for giving me the idea xx
