Got a lot of sausages to cook tomorrow and I really don't want to stand over a grill to do them.
Anyone know how long and what gas mark I can do them in the oven please.

much more yummy in the oven
i am guessing but about 25 mins at around 180 degrees? not sure what gas mark that is (5? 6?)

I would say go with what popsycal has said and just keep an eye on them. I hate frying sausages so always do mine in the oven!

I always do sausages in the oven. Ours are veggie but I doubt it it makes any difference. 20 mins on 200 degrees I do but I don't know what that is in gas - sorry

Yes - popsycal is right. Just shake them 3/4 times.

and you dont have to clean the manky grill pan afterwards.....

I stick half a bottle of white wine in too, stops them sticking, oh and an onion, all evaporates

like ff's suggestion [hungry emoticon]

Drizzling honey over them is also yummy - especially chipolata or cocktail sausos...

I rub olive oil over my hands and grease them up first.

Looks a bit pornographic but keeps 'em nice and moise. drool

Thanks a lot folks. Have got the inlaws (MIL, FIL,SIL,BIL) coming over tomorrow night and got some yummy posh sausages which I'm going to do with mash and Nigella's onion gravy.
180 is gas 4, 200 is gas 6 so reckon I'll do 5!
Looking forward to it.

Ooo yes my top tip for sausages in the oven is to brush them with oil first them come out luvverly!

Has anyone tried Nigel Slater's sausage and mash recipe? It is just the best. DP cooked it for me for one of our first meals together ;)

add a large dollop of honey and mustard to them, whatever you do!

Dh likes his done in the oven, with a lump of Stilton crumbled over the top for the last 10 minutes of the cooking time.

FF - like the wine and onion idea! I'll try that one!
