This is a really nice way to eat aubergine as it goes super soft and creamy, so no nasty squeaky bits. Plus only needs a frying pan and a baking sheet to prepare. We have it between 2 with some broccoli on the side, but it’s meant to serve 4, so you only get half an aubergine and 1 sausage each. A green salad and the garlic bread as they suggest might work. I don’t add the breadcrumbs at the end, but use parmesan or a little mature cheddar instead.
MUST USE DECENT SAUSAGE!!! I get the Sainsbury’s Taste the Difference 70% pork in the 10 packs when they’re on special and split them up to freeze. You only need 4 sausages so does work out quite economical. I’ve been known to bung the rest of the pack of sausages on the baking tray too cook while this is roasting so I have cooked sausage in the fridge for frittatas etc. This week I used my own chorizo-style kofta sausages (from WellFed2) as they’ve been in the freezer a while.
Whole thing costs under £4.50 to make 🙂
