  1. Preheat the oven. Parboil the sweet potatoes in lightly salted boiling water for 5 minutes. Heat 1 tbsp oil in a frying pan and fry the sausages for 5 minutes, or until lightly browned. Remove the sausages and carefully cut each into 4 pieces.
  2. Place the sausages, sweet potato, garlic and onion in a baking tray. Drizzle with 2 tbsp oil, sprinkle over the mixed herbs and season with salt and pepper. Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes, or until the sausages are cooked through and the sweet potatoes are tender.
  3. Cook the peas according to the packet instructions so that they are done around the same time as the sausage bake.
  4. Serve the sausage and sweet potato bake with the peas and pour over the gravy, if using.
