The recipe could be adapted to use a vegetarian or vegan substitute for the sausage meat.


And as an easy accompaniment, I decided to try a variant on cheesy potatoes using yoghurt. You’ll need to get this into the oven first, as always best to check how long a recipe takes to cook and this is about 10-15 minutes longer than the sausage platt.
