If you ask us, this tasty Wrexham Bake recipe from the Tidy Kitchen Company seems perfect for Easter!

And it’s simple, too. Why not give it a go today?


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 200 deg. C., 400 deg. F., Gas Mark 6.
  2. Wrap each sausage in one rasher of streaky bacon.
  3. Add the oil to a frying-pan on medium heat and add the sausages wrapped in bacon. Fry until browned but not burned (approximately 2 to 3 minutes on each side). Once browned, remove from the pan and place in an ovenproof dish.
  4. Add the sliced leeks and the salt to the frying-pan, and cook slowly on a medium heat, taking care not to let them burn. Once sweated, add the chopped tomatoes and dried herbs.
  5. When the tomatoes have released a small amount of water, add the chopped cooking apples. Mix well over the heat, then transfer the ovenproof dish with the sausages. Arrange the sausages evenly over the vegetable mixture.
  6. Bake in the pre-heated oven for 35 to 40 minutes or until sausages are cooked through and you can pierce apples easily with a knife. Serve with buttery mashed potatoes and steamed green beans.

We hope you enjoy!
